    Pros

    SAP throws in massive resource, good intentions, not always in the right places.
    Still known as an HCM leader, still a few good people left,

    Cons

    Poorly transitioned in by SAP; Lots of tension between SFSF and Ariba people. Shotgun marriage, horrible results!

    Advice to Management

    Stop running everything from Walldorf

    Pros

    start up atmosphere, competitive products, great office, stable, acquired by SAP with large job potential, non political environment, cloud focus is future facing

    Cons

    the acquisition by SAP means continued challenges as the company is integrated into the SAP way of going, management structure, etc.

    Advice to Management

    keep the focus on cloud and the simplicity and ease of use that comes from cloud as SF gets more integrated into SAP.

    Pros

    great culture, pay is good, good benefits. Customers are very positive about the solutions.

    The recent sales leader from SAP are asking employees to do more with even less, higher quotas with smaller territories, less resources, migration to SAP systems is a nightmare, big company bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Good company with a lot of upside. The benefits are great.. especially the bonus. SAP acquisition means more opportunities. Flexibility and virtual work environment.

    Cons

    Not so much.... but SAP acquisition also presents some challenges and could see so restructuring. The training and education reimbursement programs could be improved.
