    Pros

    I have been with SAP for over 12 years. That it itself is a testament to how valued and comfortable the company makes you feel as an employee.
    With SAP, you get the feeling that you are working on high value products that make a material impact to how businesses are run. The brand is highly respected in the industry. Work culture is great, very open and employee friendly. Pay and benefits are okay, it is better than average market, but the upside is limited as there is no profit sharing or RSUs granted on a regular basis.
    The best part is, SAP provides great opportunities to move within the company to new jobs and teams, and invests in talent development.

    Cons

    Speed and agility - This is definitely an area SAP can improve on.
    I have often felt that SAP leadership lacks decisiveness. So, in several areas you see similar products competing with other SAP products, and it could be confusing. This often affects the speed of delivery.
    There is also more resistance to change, so you could get stuck with "dead" products or technologies for a while.
    Proprietary technologies - SAP's flagship products - SAP Business Suite - is built using proprietary technologies. In the last few years, SAP has embraced more common technology stacks to build solutions, and I hope this will only increase and will improve the ease of development and speed of delivery.
    Not enough early talent - I feel that the average age of an SAP employee is higher than the industry average. This is a huge benefit due the experience and knowledge levels that reflect in high quality of software products the company produces. But, it is important to balance this with early talent to leverage new ideas, trends, skills and energy they can bring.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus more on perks and benefits to improve employee engagement and satisfaction. Small gifts, perks, spot awards and similar benefits can improve employee satisfaction tremendously. In dynamic job markets like Silicon Valley or Bangalore, this can play an important role in retaining talent, and even attracting new and young talent.
