Micro managing
Platinum Customer Success Advocate III (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 6, 2015
The biggest take-away from SFSF was that managers felt a strong need to micro-manage their employees' workload. It because a second full-time job managing your manager.

Unstable and no growth
specialist (Former Employee) –  NCR PhilippinesMarch 4, 2013
very unstable. Promises to give above salary standard but not really sure if they can afford it. Transferred 95% of their operation in the Philippines yet they still had to layoff people. Student loan management may not be as lucrative as it was years ago. Seems like they can fold up anytime. Best not to transfer if coming from a stable company. Maybe good if can't find any other job.

HR, who think she looks fancy, likes to schedule you for interviews at ungodly hours because they are on night shift but the CEO does not show up. Went there several times and he never showed up. Speaks volumes on its professionalism! That is also the reason why I knew there was a layoff because while I was waiting for the big boss, people talked about it nonstop. people talk to much there. what a bunch of losers!

Lovely offices, very productive, great people
Executive Assistant & Office Manager (Current Employee) –  Central LondonJanuary 11, 2013
An extremely varied role where no one day is the same. I work with some lovely people and our offices are based in central London, just off Regent Street. I have learned a great deal about office management during my time here and have been for the most part, 'left to get on with it'. I have had 3 managers since I first joined, all of which have been based in Germany so that aspect hasn't been completely satisfactory. While I don't need 'micro managing' it has proven to be negative at times such as Performance Reviews when the managers haven't really been able to comment properly due to not fully undertanding the content of my role.
Pros
fruit, able to work from home occasionally, the buzz of central london
Cons
never being able to take a proper holiday due to nobody else being able to do my job

Great perks but executives are out of touch
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Minnetonka, MNOctober 6, 2012
Our company was acquired by SuccessFactors. The work environment was already great with amazing perks and actually got even better. Once the honeymoon phase wore off it became obvious that the higher up management has little to no idea of what actually goes on below them. Certain things go through the proper channels smooth as silk, while others (now going on 10 months) of seemingly similar difficulty and importance have yet to be resolved. The immediate managers and coworkers are awesome with great work/life balance. You will want to go to work every day as long as you can survive being treated as a machine at times by executives. The company is moving very fast and is very innovative. The people that work there are incredibly smart and you will learn a lot.
Pros
free lunches, telecommuting, no accrued pto, many perks
Cons
executives seem out of touch

Need to drink their own champagne
Customer Success (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAAugust 31, 2012
1. This company encourages nepotism and favoritism.
2. Management is clueless about their own product
3. There is no succession plan
4. Unlimited vacation is good if you can actually take it

Sehr beschränkte Möglichkeiten für Entwicklung
Technischer Kundendienst (Current Employee) –  GalwayMay 15, 2015
Bedauerlicherweise interessiert sich das Management nur für gute KPI, aber nicht wie sie Mitarbeiter coachen, um sie zu erreichen. Dazu reicht meiner Meinung nach ein online Meeting und dann eine Abfrage der gerade gezeigten Videos nicht aus.

Es wird kein Grundverständnis aufgebaut, was guter Kundenservice ist. Warum es ihn gibt. Manager unterhalten sich nur zu vorgegebenen Meetings mit den Mitarbeitern, ansonsten wird dies tunlichst vermieden.

In neue Arbeitsbereiche wird man nicht eingearbeitet. Stattdessen werden irgendwelche Worddokumente vorgelegt die das Produkt vorstellen. Danach darf man dann Kunden bei der Fehlersuche unterstützen, was weder für den Mitarbeiter gut ist noch für die Kunden angemessen.

Erfahrene Mitarbeiter werden entlassen, um zu sparen.
Es wird mehr Energie darauf verwendet Personen die das Unternehmen verlassen wollen Steine in den Weg zu legen als das man vorher daran arbeitet genau diese Mitarbeiter zum bleiben zu motivieren. Aber dazu müsste man ja als Management etwas arbeiten. Was nicht im Interesse des Managements ist, wozu auch wenn der Ruhestand kurz bevorsteht.

Diese Ansicht bezieht sich nur auf den Standort Galway, es kann durchaus sein, dass das Management in anderen Standorten um einiges besser ist. Galway kann ich aber unter keinen Umständen empfehlen.
