    I have been working at SAP as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, working for home is appropriate or working remotely is also acceptable. The people (Staff) are really helpful and friendly and are not competitive. Everyone works as a team! There are Jam Groups you can join that are very informative. They have on-the-job training and Open SAP learning center where you can take on-line courses should you choose to do so. The salary is excellent!

    Cons

    Sometimes the executives and be a little finicky. Sometimes they will be very moody, but that's just their way of getting their point across. They CEO's VPS and SVPs have very hard jobs to fill. The Administrative Support team is there to help them advance and do their jobs better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Innovate, Simplify, Communicate, and make SAP the great company we all know it is and can be in the future!

    The compensation upside is limited and dependent on ability to navigate political landscape

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less focus on building a Millennial culture and recognize the talent you have walking the halls

    SAP is a high paced, performance based culture that continues to excel in a quickly changing software environment.

    Its long-term strategy is unclear for people who want steadiness and it has too many moving parts that rub against each other.

    Pros

    Solid management team, great culture, cohesive strategy make SAP a very attractive company to work for if you are looking for a large enterprise technology company.

    Some overlap of responsibilities, limited upward mobility or unclear migration paths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally i.e., provide opportunities based on merit rather than singling out a particular group

    Great place to work. Very smart people. Large company thus, bureaucracy creeps in.

    I have been working at SAP full-time

    Pros

    Smart people who work hard. There is an emphasis put on work-life balance. Redundancy is being cleaned up throughout the company. Training is available, if you need take advantage of it.

    Cons

    Most likely need to relocate to advance in the company (which you may consider a "Pro" or a "Con"). Walldorf is the HQ and thus the center of SAP's universe even though great ideas spring up all over the company. Not really a "con", but I'll put it here: You must be a consensus builder in order to succeed.
