Working at SAP-SuccessFactors was an interesting experience. I had decent management, but they were in the midst of a change. As such, the job description was very fluid and required constant adaptation.
Additionally, the internal processes were bogged down by bureaucracy. Though it is necessary for a company of this size, it often resulted in slow resolution of issues. Communication is very key with our clients in this regard.
Unfortunately, I was laid-off, so I would still be working there. I encourage people to apply for this company.
IT Manager (Former Employee) – South San Francisco, CA – 24 June 2017
Great company until the acquisition by SAP. Everyone has nearly moved on at this point. No reason to stay. SAP culture is horrible. My new manager, manages by fear. A sad surprise that was to learn. Seems like every 6 months, there's a reorg....
Senior Training Delivery Manager (Former Employee) – South San Francisco, CA – 8 September 2016
SuccessFactors was a great learning experience -- excellent projects to grow my experience and stretch my portfolio, an outstanding team of colleauges, and a genuine sense of caring about the customer. Since its purchase by SAP, culture and management struggled (the reason I left).
Technischer Kundendienst (Current Employee) – Galway – 15 May 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.

specialist (Former Employee) – NCR Philippines – 4 March 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!
Executive Assistant & Office Manager (Current Employee) – Central London – 11 January 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.
fruit, able to work from home occasionally, the buzz of central london
never being able to take a proper holiday due to nobody else being able to do my job
