My 5 Plus Years At Successfactors: SAP, Bangalore
This is my last week at SuccessFactors - SAP and I believe this is the right time to share my experiences and express my gratitude. SuccessFactors builds enterprise class products in HCM/HRIS domain for its customers and offers that via SaaS model. We build solutions and products that help our customers succeed in their respective businesses. We are customer first and customer focused organization.
There are many awesome things that I liked and enjoyed here, but let me mention few important ones.

The flexibility and complete ownership of the work they do aspire them to do more, deliver more. With freedom comes great responsibly and our employees are totally aware of that.

We encourage everyone to find the best possible ways to be productive and improving our communication, strategies including ourselves.
Kaizen to me is like operating in infinitely beta mode that keeps getting better and better. I am sure we 'd continue on that principle and keep improving ourselves and our processes that results in better productivity and solid products.
I am grateful for the opportunity I got to work here. I owe big thanks to the leaders and managers who believed in me, encouraged and supported me by giving opportunities to grow professionally, personally and technically. Like everything we all have our strengths and weaknesses. Not all the things are always splendid. There are instances where things don 't work the way we expected and that 's the way life is. Those can be identified and improved if we acknowledge. I feel there are still few things that can be improved and kaizen would
