I worked at SAP full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great, collaborative, collegiate culture
Excellent salary & benefits across the board
Smart colleagues

Cons

Too much Germany control in application development
Consensus culture means decisions take forever and bureaucratic processes stymie local decision making and execution
Unwilling to accept failures and move on such as business by design

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give autonomy to SVP level people with a budget and revenue target. Let them make their own decisions and prove them.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Potential impact of your work is great, because SAP has reach and muscles.
    SAP takes care of its employees. Full benefits, vacations accumulate up to 5 weeks (at 10 year mark).

    Cons

    It's a big company: prepare to navigate politics and work the system. SAP craves innovation but there are strict technical boundaries as to how a product is built (e.g. java only), which slows down some innovation efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lift barriers to innovation.
