    I have been working at SAP as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    many perks -- great pay, benefits, etc... a great campus; relaxing, lots of free parking , company gives 4 bucks a day for food, cafeteria is incredible ,e specially the salad bar..it's loaded with grilled chicken, grilled vegetables, big chunks of fresh tuna...for less than 4 dollars a pound. They also give free drinks - iced tea, water, soda, throughout the day. Great access to a lot of product knowledge on its portal; People are generally nice and helpful

    Cons

    very sales oriented; quarter end is crazy; for a software org, it could be a little tighter; it's more of a sales and marketing org first, and a technology company second; products are actually difficult to use and not that intuitive;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    let the good times roll..hit your sales targets and continue passing on the good fortunate

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company really does take care of it's people. Even if they have some massive shift in strategy, I have to admit they do a good job of trying to shift peoples roles instead of just letting them go. They also offer a decent severence strategy to give you time to find another role inside the company if they do let you go. The benefits are good. The people are usually the best of the best and are very helpful. There are some attitudes and egos but most people are great to work with. There are tons of opportunities to advance here and it's encouraged. SAP is also a great career experience and you become a valuable commodity after a couple of years in sales.

    Cons

    In the sales side, the biggest negative to working here is that the company changes their strategy yearly, which isn't terribly odd execpt that it usually means you'll be in a different role in a different territory from year to year. The exception is if you are high level field AE. This means you have one year to make hey because you know you'll be doing something different come January. Also, don't plan on taking vacation in sales during the last quarter, especially right at the end of the year. That's when all the big deals close. As an Inside sales person, there's also only so much affect you can have on a larger deal. Due to the way the sale organization is structured, an SAP partner is involved as well as an SAP feild person, which can often reduce your role on large deals to admin and reporting guy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing everyone's roles every year. It makes us myopic in our sales strategy.
