    Pros

    Working as a contractor you get to learn from the professionals and work with a vast array of various
    personalities and diverse co-workers and executives.

    Cons

    The challenges of being a contract employee is that you work for a staffing company instead of directly for SAP. Therefore you have less access to all that is available to permanent employees.

    It is a large corporation, so it gets top heavy from time to time with too much middle management.

    Current Employee - Senior Support Engineer in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Great benefit and atmosphere
    - Lots of path to take for your career
    - Acknowledging and guiding professional growth (In short it is part of their process to ask you what do you want to do and they will help you get there)
    - For high caliber individuals, more room to mold your career

    Cons

    - If you want to grow in the company you better say yes to moving (not sure if this is a con but it could also be a pro)
    - People who exceed in performance may get better benefits (this is true with all companies)
    - If you think you exceed in performance and if it does not match their calculation and matrix, do not expect much at the end of the year (raises and others)

    Cons

    The opportunities are kind of random. Not everybody can get their hands onto a big and significant project because of timing.
