    I worked at SAP

    Pros

    - Company continues to strive and invest to be at forefront of business and IT, SAP is an exciting place to work.
    - Great benefits, people, and pay
    - Lots of smart people to work with and opportunities abound
    - Mature processes, management and capabilities

    Cons

    - Sales environment is tuff but rewarding
    - Can be bureaucratic and political but what large company isn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Put more focus on customers than on sales, profit and the current quarter
    - Need to decide if you want to be in services business or not. If so, do what it takes to be a great services organization, not just a high margin one.
    - The amount of leadership change on the services side is baffling. Pick some winners and stick with them.
    - Do more around leadership development and succession planning.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    An above average compensation package is possible for sales roles. Also, getting exposure to many bright and talented people through both SAP and it's partners can open up future opportunities that may not be as available with many other companies.

    Cons

    Change and reorganizations occur often. Colleagues change roles often (many times for the better, such as promotions), as well as territories and account coverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just try to focus on making minimal organizational change from year-to-year, particularly as it relates to sales coverage (geographical territories; product bag, etc.). I'm sure you've lost many talented people because of adjusting sales territories too often.

    I worked at SAP full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    When I visited customers, looked around and understood their processes then I almost always asked myself: "And that's ALL they do?!". You will never feel like this at SAP. It is an incredible place to work with lots of experiences to make, lots of flexibility and an exciting outlook.

    Cons

    Substantial salary increases are very hard to get.
