Auditing Clerk (Former Employee), Eden Prairie, MN – January 9, 2014
Pros: free breakfast and lunches, free snack food, outdoor patio
My primary task in Concur, Inc was receipt handling. I prepared expense reports, scanned and upload them to the company's system for our clients to view electronically. I also worked with invoices by doing the same as with expense reports. However, preparing invoices require more attention because after uploading them to the system, clients do not have – more... chance to review the prepared invoices. Auditors work on these invoices shortly after they are uploaded to the system where they are accessed electronically. My co-workers are fun and very friendly. I wouldn't say there's anything hard about the job. However, because it involves money I made sure I pay close attention to what I was doing. I worked in the pace I was most comfortable with but still manage to finish the tasks on time. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I was almost always doing something. I like being busy because it makes the day go by faster. The supervisor that I worked with was very nice and welcoming. Likewise, the manager was very understanding and was willing to listen to what employees had to say. – less

Internal IT Admin/DSS III, Team Lead (Former Employee), Eden Prairie, MN – May 15, 2012
Pros: benefits, culture.
Cons: work work work
This was one of the best companies I've ever worked for, however they were growing at a pace that outmatched IT unfortunately. The unspoken company credo is WORK until you drop. Benefits were great and not costly, salaries were above average but the bonuses were excellent. There is a definite culture that espouses diversity however that is not always – more... the case. I worked an average of 14 hours a day. – less
Service Administrator Supervisor (Current Employee), Work from home - Redmond, WA – May 7, 2012
Pros: work from home
Cons: work from home
My job consists of servicing Customers after they have implemented the product. I help them administer and maintain their Concur Expense system. The nice thing about working from home is that I can adjust my day to fit around my personal life. I start about 5am work for a couple of hours, get the family up and going and then get back to work until my – more... daughter comes home from school. In the evenings after she has gone to bed I can do a little more work if I'm behind or not. My team is great, even though we are all working from home, we communicate frequently via phone and Lync. We are still a team even though we are so far apart. It is hard working from home though, you miss the chitchat over the water cooler, but at least I know the team is still there to support me in my work needs. I love being able to determine what my day will be as long as I get my work done. Concur is a great place to work! – less
SW Configuration Engineer Lead (Current Employee), Prague – April 16, 2012
Pros: mostly good management, growing company
Cons: less organized
What to say in few words? The summary could be probably "well organized chaos"
Does it sound strange? It is much better than it sounds. Some companies have well organized processes, but move really really slow and people have problems to do anything. Concur is the other way around. Very little things is predefined. We live out of fresh and creative – more... minds that are able to take problem they find themselves and fix it while just providing report on the way what they found, what is status and when it is done. Is it always as easy as this? Of course not, we have some paperwork as well and to get things moving isn't 100% easy all the time, but it is possible and the more creative and constructive people are the more options they have.
Concur helped me to grow my soft skills, get experience on different technology areas and after I have been able to present that company can trust me I am getting more and more freedom on daily bases and my voice is heard more and more which is fulfilling.
Is Concur the best company in the world? It is not, paycheck is never high enough, but if somebody wants stable company with reasonable income and great people then it is definitely great option to think about. – less
Cons: growing fast so territories are being chopped up
Very hands off on your work day - no micro management Learned a lot about finance departments Management for the most part is great Hardest part - you are selling a product that many consider a luxury item Most enjoyable - they truly cared about their employees
Manager, Client Support (Current Employee), Home Office – March 21, 2012
Pros: progressive thinking, best in class, supportive, huge opportunity for growth
I have worked at a number of different jobs in my professional tenure, some very exciting, including a cruise line and an airline, and I can honestly say that working at Concur is the BEST job I have ever had! Honestly every job presents days that are not ideal, but even on the very worst of days, it is far outshines any position I have ever held. The – more... management, the employees, the culture, the progressive thinking, the feeling that each individual plays a role in the overall success, how wonderful is that? – less
Senior Knowledge Development Manager (Current Employee), Redmond, WA – March 21, 2012
Pros: open family-like culture, accessible leadership team, remote working supported, great health & retirement benefits, wide-array of job-related experiences to be had
Having worked for Concur for over a year, I still go to work excited to be a part of something great and innovative. I have not ever worked for a company that not only says that the culture is like family, but also lives that mantra everyday. Everyone understands that they are critical to the success of the company and the leadership team regularly – more... reinforces that with the employees. Additionally the leadership team does not sit off in an ivory tower, inaccessible to everyone. They are out in the office everyday, grabbing conversations with you. Finally, I would say that working at Concur has afforded me many diverse experiences that I can add to my tool belt that I might not have gotten with any other company. – less

I am so proud to be part of a company that is growing by leaps and bounds yet never loses sight of it's employees. I can truly say that I have found the company that I will be retiring with.
