    From time to time long hours are required, but that's not unusual in software development.

    I worked at SAP full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Professional team and top flight talent, as of 2008. Good Benefits. Excellent training curriculum for the product suite.

    Cons

    Process Intensive. Simply requesting a memory upgrade for a laptop might take up to two months to get approved. That being said, the process for booking business travel was streamlined, and painless.

    Pros

    Great swell of people to network.
    Great benefits for all ages. Started with 3 week vacation.

    Slow moving a giant colossus of a company.
    Direction can be hard to understand from the ground level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing direction.
    Use the people below you and stop thinking you're all made from Heaven

    Pros

    Great company to work for quality of life balance. Things change frequently, which keeps any job at the company interesting. Great compensation and benefits. Management is excellent in communicating information to the workforce. Vast amount of training opportunities.

    Cons

    The many job function and department silos can make it challenging to get things done, despite management's belief that people should feel empowered to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline overlapping job functions if the goal is to become a more agile work environment.

    Pros

    Innovative, great products, great marketing, global brand

    Cons

    Very current quarter focussed. If you have a good patch, then it is a great place and you have the time and space to build relationships and develop your pipeline/opportunities. If you have a bad patch, you are micro managed, and do not have as much time to engage with your customers.

    I worked at SAP full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very flexible work from home policy. Generous benefits, especially if you are at one of the HQ offices. For consultants, the expense policy is really liberal.

    Cons

    Company strategy changes a lot, things dont always move as quickly as you want them to go. It is difficult to move across departments, especially going from consulting to a non-revenue job.
