    Pros

    Very loyal, very large global customer base. Usually one of a few strategic vendors that the largest companies in the world rely on.

    Flexible work environment. Nice people (no screamers). SAP genuinely cares about its employees and wants them to like the company.

    Company is changing - very different from 5 years ago. New businesses are moving fast and highly competitive.

    Cons

    Org structures can be very convoluted and very global. There is some emphasis on co-location but easy to have people from Germany, India, US all on the same team. Try getting them on a con call.

    Very much a technology focused go-to-market structure in a business where solutions matter more to customers.

    German HQ is very detached from realities of Silicon Valley. Structural influence of the German Works Council is corrosive - limits mgmt from reacting to market trends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move to a structure of global business units aligned to market opportunities. As much as possible locate these in friendly business environments
