Pros

You can make good money selling software at SAP. Benefits are good. Sales engineers and sales support overall is above average. You can move into new jobs.

Cons

Big license sales have fallen off the cliff, SAP is going to have to adjust to the new economy and I don't think they have. VP's and SVP's have some very large ego's that are not warranted. A few of them are so self centered it is hard to explain. Relentless pressure to close big sales. Obtuse expense reporting process, horrible CRM.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bill needs to clean house at the EVP and SVP level. Many need firing. in consulting, in utilities, in public sector in product management. Dont put your friends in a job. Put qualified people in the job. Encourage loyalty and respect to subordinates. Let the pressure off a little on the sales force. The pace has been accelerating for 8 years. Cannot keep pushing forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Be more thoughtful of how reorgs are done. Make the decisions. Implement. And move on. Dont drag it out.
    *Lighten up on middle management. There are way too many chiefs and vice chiefs and senior vice chiefs and not enough Indians (Native American, not those from India) to do the work.
