Worked like a dog, far too inwardly focussed - as if Bill McDermott is a god. Embrassed by poor customer value delivered

Pros

Great compensation package - very high commission for software sales. Huge brand advertising and PR machine - real door opener. Customers CV is wrapped up in SAP Brand and they support - almost slavishly. Good events and great Philly office.

Cons

Worked like a dog, far too inwardly focussed - as if Bill McDermott is a god, not just going for CEO but the Papacy. Huge number of internal reports and spreadhseets - huge CYA meetings and reporting. Shamed/Embrassed by poor customer value delivered for software and esp support. Now a hire and fire organisation - do not expect a career in sales at SAP ,just work your butt off, hang on and enjoy the ride.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on delivering real value to the customers - you have forgot them in the internal battles, they will not go on forgiving you.

    Pros

    Many perks (free food, good coffee, dry cleaners) and flexible hours (work form home is very common). Salaries are over the industry average.

    Cons

    Lack of mentorship. One needs to figure it out the way to navigate the bureaucracy. There is no clear career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no structured search for top talent within the company. Many parts of the organization seem disconnected from the rest, there is a lack of unified leadership.
