I have been working at SAP full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Truly international, global organization where you can interact with people from all continents in a given day.
Ownership and flexibility - most people work from home office
Company has lots of resources and small ideas can become big very rapidly if you manage to set the wheels in movement.

Cons

Hard to go up the ranks, political environment from VP-level and up.
Very complex organization that is perpetually changing due to periodic reorgs. You need to be a very flexible person who adapts to change quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase meritocracy, look outside of your close circle for talent.

    I worked at SAP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very decent benefits, smart people, interesting projects depending on the business unit.

    Cons

    Typical large enterprise issues- slow processes and inefficiencies, lots of bureaucracy and confusion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train better managers better, people jumping from technology to management generally make life very hard for themselves, their reports and the company
