    Good company, but avoid Customer Support

    I have been working at Ariba full-time (more than 5 years)


    - Good pay when coming from another company
    - Nice benefits, including free lunch on Wednesday, beer on Friday, and near European-style maternity/paternity leave
    - Lots of opportunity for growth & advancement
    - Fast-paced environment - never a shortage of work that needs to be done


    - Weak merit increases (though at least they have them) and pay bumps when changing positions internally
    - Rampant nepotism/favoritism in Customer Support
    - Performance goals for different teams are in direct opposition to each other (very little "for the customer" mentality despite management's insistence)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Are we trying to do what's best for the customer or what's best for SAP and the Sales team's commissions? You can't ask everyone to work together but at the same time have everyone's bonus goals in direct opposition to each other.
