Pros: SuccessFactors offers a wide variety of products covering the entire full talent suite including L&D, succession, recruiting, and performance management software. Having a "one-stop-shop" for all of our talent management needs was a major factor in our software choice. This not only provides a better user experience for our employees, but consolidates our data into one place. Also, the software is highly configurable. While this varies by module, there is typically a lot room to configure both the functionality and aesthetics of the software.

Cons: Some of the products were purchased later on and "bolted" to the existing software. Unfortunately, these pieces can end up not meshing well with the existing system. They sometimes require separate log-ins, additional uploads/permission/management, and separate reporting. There hasn't been much of an effort by SuccessFactors to better align these products so that there is a fluid transition between modules. Parts of the software are dated. They either lack functionality that most systems have today or simply look like older technology. The v12 update was a huge improvement but is only available for some modules. Much of the software feels like it was "designed" by programmers. The user interface is not the most intuitive and can be confusing for non tech-savvy users. Even more astute users struggle with over-complicated processes and layouts.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try to map out exactly what you'd like to accomplish with the software. This will identify potential issues or software deficiencies early on in your evaluation. While SuccessFactors will help guide your process creation during scoping and implementation, you need to know up front if key elements can be included in the process or that specific results can be achieved.

Pros: It has an extensive collection of books and training materials. You can prepare yourself for a certification exam by using the materials which are available to your company. You can find the right material and study focused on your objective. Some materials must be bought by you Enterprise or it will not be available to its employees, but even without the specific trainings, it stills useful.

Cons: Its so hard to use it. Nothing is easy to find, you spend too much time just to know where you are and to find what you are looking for. It would me much better if it is just like the OpenSAP. That other platform is better organized and structured, but SAP Success Factors still got its value, I think it just could be better.

Overall: My certifications came from extensive studies, I think I couldn't have made it without SAP Learning, by success factors. If the format was just like the OpenSAP, then it would be perfect!

Comments: Overall good software with in depth details and management highly suitable for large enterprises.

Pros: Success factors is US based company which provides solution for Human Capital management, now this company is acquired by SAP AG. 1. Success factors provides human capital management solutions for large enterprises 2. It provides complete solutions starting from KRA/ KPI management, Learning and Development, Talent acquisition etc which cater most HR department requirement. 3. It has complete customization available which can be changed according to need of the organization. 4. In depth analysis of data/ details can be done from administrator account which gives complete overview.

Cons: 1. Pricing for software is on higher side which mostly large enterprises can only afford. 2. User interface needs improvement, it is not much user friendly and hence proper awareness is to be imparted to users who are going to use it. 3. It lakes seamless integration with various SAP modules. 4. Sometime its complexity is such that excel based HCM seems like more suitable

Pros: During my time leading succession planning/talent planning for a Fortune 500 company, we implemented the TM suite by SuccessFactors. The strong points were the active facilitation usage that business leaders experienced in meetings... meaning that as they were talking through talent planning meetings, it was incredibly easy to follow along in the system and update records/notes, and establish succession plans.

Cons: The back end reporting was difficult, and not integrated well with other modules, as well as our SAP HR system.

Pros: SuccessFactors provides a lot of bells and whistles compared to our old learning management system. We've used SF for almost a year and have been extremely pleased with our ability to: assign learning to specific groups, bundle training into programs and curriculums, and easily track training. One feature that has been extremely beneficial to our field force is the My Team tile, which allows supervisors and alternative supervisors to assign training, track training, and run reports. This was not possible with our former LMS.

Cons: It is not the easiest system to use. I would recommend hands-on training to learn how to load courses, exams and live events, as it's a pretty arduous process. Customer service hasn't been the best. With our old LMS, issues were addressed within 48 hours. Recently, we had an issue that took almost a week to resolve. Additionally, setting up curriculums / programs for specific work groups, etc. is challenging. We recently needed to set up four curriculums as part of our Firm Element training and it took three times to get it right. That was frustrating.

Recommendations to other buyers: For our firm, it worked best to have an implementation company come in and help us transfer from our old LMS to SuccessFactors. We used Cognizant and it made the entire implementation go smoothly.

Pros: Great for large companies with set curricula in place. Custom Reporting, Multiple Learning Types Supported. Ability to add references/global resources. Integrated with SAP GlobalScape (previously iContent).

Cons: Lack of forward facing custom reporting (SQL Knowledge required). Customer support is not included with licensing; third party support is sub par.

Comments: If you would like to compare it to the mobile phone market, it could be seen as the Samsung in the market, whereas Workday is the Apple in the market. SuccessFactors doesn't give the Apple kind of feeling, but by far has better (and more) options inside, whereas Workday tends to be perceived as a bit easier to some customers, while you do loose a lot of functionality.

Pros: - Highly flexible for a cloud based product; - Offers a lot of options to customise as a customer after the implementation.

Cons: - Has a lot of features that won't be useful to a lot of customers; - Doesn't always give you the feeling it's one system if you combine various modules.

Comments: They are one of the best in HR cloud solutions.

Pros: All HR aspects have been thought of if you are into the out-of-the-box solution then SuccessFactors is the best. very scaleable and well-integrated system. With Employee Central you can replace old HR systems with smile

Cons: If your company enforce its own standards then you need to think a lot before going to cloud. As for SuccessFactors, we faced a lot of limitations whenever we try to customize things. It is not as flexiable as promoted. Licenses costs a lot, make sure to check other competitors before moving to SuccessFactors

Comments: Stay true to what you are good at; be the best there and innovate! If you nail that people will continue to come; but if you bury the features within SAP - my guess is that they will be quickly overtaken.

Pros: It has been interesting to see how SuccessFactors has evolved and is now being positioned within SAP. I have always seen them as stronger in performance management and succession. The frameworks the tool was originally based on have certainly held the test of time.

Cons: As with everyone acquired by Oracle or SAP; you wonder what is going to be left in a couple of years. Also, struggle with the adequacy of the payroll, benefits, workforce management, etc.. Have always understood why they wanted to be there but it's a bit like going to a motorcycle dealer to but a car.

Comments: After working with ADP and SAP I find that SAP allows better organizational structure support and believe the system as a whole can be more valuable than ADP but operating with just the Employee Information portion of the system is not worth it. I recommend going all or nothing with this HRIS.

Pros: I appreciate the idea of a database for positions and a database for people. It is a great idea and I think they have a good design to build on.

Cons: The positions don't change when a person changes. This was a challenge. You can automatically transfer employees to new supervisors when you terminate a supervisor, but the positions for all those employees will still show the higher level position to be the terminated one rather than the new one causing double the work. It is a challenge, and I think their reporting and importing processes could be more efficient.

Pros: Nothing compared to modern ATS´s like Ponty, Workable, Teamtailor, GreenHouse etc. A nice "tell" is that during demo videos (created by actual fans/users on Youtube) the product lags and there is pauses every now and then since the pages have to load and you have to wait. Acceptable 10 years ago, not so much in 2018.

Cons: - Crap UX: Means many clicks = drags down productivity - Setting up processes or adding a step is an actual project. Something that takes less then 2 minutes with any of the systems above - No data visualization (unless extra module is bought). Data is everything! And it´s a really unmodern and slow process to create specific reports (again, a project in itself), and then you get a report where have to take the data and maunally use your own tools to visualize your findings. - This is like a 15 years old recruitment system BUT it´s also expensive and you have to hire extra staff as trainers since the UX is so bad so this ads even more to the total cost. - No built in surveys. For instance if you want to check your candidate experience and such. The list goes on but you get the picture.

Comments: Currently, my organization is running into a road block integrating SAP SuccessFactors Learning with CEB Metrics That Matter. I find it surprising that an analyst-recognized leader (SAP) and the industry leader in providing best practice and talent management insights (Gartner) are not able to communicate with each other.

Pros: I like most that SAP SuccessFactors Learning is comprehensive in its ability to manage the employee training cycle.

Cons: I like least that SAP SuccessFactors Learning is limited in its ability to report on evaluation learning data. Reports consist of either a pdf or .csv file and often fail if the file is too large or takes too long to run.

Pros: Performance Management workflows allows managers and employees to see the entire process. Weighting and grading system is great and the writing assistance really helps during mid-year and annual reviews

Cons: Mass loading of goals and targets is not easy. Would be good to have a simple way to complete an Excel file and quickly load goals, 1-5 rating scale etc.

Overall: It is critical for all employees to have clear direction...vision, values, group goals, functional goals. SuccessFactors helps us manage all of this. The workflows are awesome allowing oyu to set up each stage of the process and release...Goal Setting, Goal Review/Acknowledgement, Mid-year Assessment, Annual Review. Each job role has core competencies, functional competencies and than overall performance targets. Weighting system is awesome, personnel calibration and round tables is great.

Recommendations to other buyers: Get your workflow figured out and mock run it thru with department managers before loading the workflow. Needs buy-in from the top to be successful. If the CEO is not on board and driving it, than it will never become important

Pros: SuccessFactors was at the forefront of goal setting/performance management back in 2007. The product features remain strong.

Cons: I am very disappointed with SAP's customer support model for SuccessFactors' clients. SAP makes it very difficult for clients to create their own forms in the system so they need to hire a 3rd party vendor and pay per hour for support. Additionally, if a client has a technical issue, they need to log a ticket and wait weeks for a response. There is not a way to speak with a "live" person unless you pay extra for one of their support packages.

Pros: Encourages quarterly check-ins through an automated reminder process so that managers must think about performance reviews more than once per year.

Cons: Clunky form submission process sometimes results in lost work. Language checks often flag false positive results, such as describing "the old user interface" being flagged as "age-ist". Their heart is in the right place, but it needs some tuning. Support for a more lightweight OKR-driven approach instead of filling out massive forms would be more in-line with modern performance review practices in place at orgs like Google.

Pros: I really enjoyed seeing where I was at in terms of meeting my quarterly and annual goals, and how I could measure against them.

Cons: While the concept is good, there is still a LOT of work that needs to be done outside of the system. So many people think that this system is going to make goal tracking easier, and while it is easier, it is not "automated", which is why it falls to the wayside, and does not get thoroughly integrated into the company.

Recommendations to other buyers: The system is only going to work if the company truly takes the time to develop the goals for each department, see how they are interlinked with other departments, and properly rolls those goals out into the system. If you do not take the time to do the front end work, this system is not going to work on the back end.

Pros: Updates came out on a regular basis and they listened to their clientele as to what was needed. It was a great tool for companies who have very basic review to do and could accommodate multiple review processes, as well as compensation processes.

Cons: It was hard to customize or make it fit what your company needed if it didn't match the way the system was setup. It was also hard to get answers from the company and we were usually passed around to multiple people before we were ever given an answer. From our experience, the system also experienced numerous bugs. Very often it seemed like we were dealing with a bug and having to wait on a patch. I know the company was going through a lot of growth and changes, but it was very stressful to constantly deal with the system not working properly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Reach out to many company to get feedback and find companies who use the system in a similar way that you will be using it. We found many companies are happy with it, but didn't use it in the way that we needed to. And research other similar companies and reach out to them to to gather as much information as possible as well as request to see a working version of the system and not just screenshots or a presentation of how it's supposed to work.

Pros: The user interface and reporting are very easy to use, and the manager view is great!

Cons: The build-out is complicated, and can be costly. Really think about what your HR Business needs will be. I imagine that doing a buildout with several modules would be faster than doing them one by one. I am sure you can negotiate on the price as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: I recommend if you have a desire to do a lot of custom features. Make sure your HR rep understands the system. The SF customer service can take a long time to get you an answer to your actual problem.

Cons: The support and post sales service can be improved.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try to map out exactly what you'd like to accomplish with the application. This will identify potential issues or software deficiencies early on in your evaluation.

Pros: I like that this software can be integrated between modules and is extremely customizable with the support of system adminstrators and analysts. There are lots of options for building an Applicant Tracking System, Onboarding platform and Performance system.

Cons: Costly to work with SAP and get the best support - if paid for, there is a lot of great support resources! Integrations are not fully developed for being such a large firm. Modules have been created by different companies and acquired over time. Some functionality is not fully developed and sometimes the vendor loses focus.

Comments: If you are looking for a stable LMS and performance management systems, SuccessFactors can do the job. However, if you are looking for a more agile and innovation solution, I suggest to go for other platforms.

Pros: I like the stability of the SuccessFactors LMS and Performance Management system, especially the LMS side where the automated course and curriculum assignment process is streamlined.

Pros: You can copy from the previous year and populate the current year form.

Cons: I'm not certain if it's a design of the product or the employer customized design that you could not rebut your manager's specific comment. Instead, you could write a statement at the end of the review, not where the manager's comment appeared.

Overall: It's a time consuming process to self-evaluate yourself but SuccessFactors gives you the tool to do it.

Pros: I find this Software to be easy to use after you've become familiar with it. I like the workflow aspect of it so that you can easily see progress during the different stages of the performance reviews.

Cons: I think that the software looks old and would benefit from a refreshed look/new skin. I think a re-design would make it more intuitive.

Pros: Very user-friendly. Our employee population loved the interface, and HR found it very easy to use.

Cons: Had some integration issues, but SF helped us fix any issues we had very quickly.

Recommendations to other buyers: As always, compare your options but don't be afraid of price tags. Picking a system that will be useful and accepted by your organization will come at a premium price. However, you'll lose credibility if you go with a less quality system that isn't accepted.

Comments: Great way to agree on and work toward KPIs with your team/group

Pros: Our HR department created an 20-step onboarding plan for me in SuccessFactors. Now that I've gone through all of the steps, I feel like I know the basics that I need to know for working here. Not the role-specific experience, but the sometimes hard to obtain, internal experience that makes getting work done easier.

Cons: There really aren't too many "cons" from my point-of-view. I also like the "KPI" section. If there is another "con" I guess it's that I don't understand how SuccessFactors and "Jam" are different and what should be done in each.

Comments: I have used this product for over a year as the HR system administrator. The customer support is awful. To put in a ticket, you have to research the topic on their site before it lets you submit a ticket. It also takes them forever to get back to you. I submitted a "high" priority ticket this year and it took them one week to get back to me.

Pros: Core functions and features are on par with most other companies.

Cons: The customer support is awful. To put in a ticket, you have to research the topic. It takes them forever to get back to you. I submitted a "high" priority ticket. It took them one week to get back to me.

Recommendations to other buyers: While they have been a market leader, think twice before you go with them due to the customer service piece.
