    Lost the old Spirit - but found a new one"

    Global Account Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsWorking with passionate and talented People. 65% of the worlds GDP runs better with SAP - so you work really can make a big Impact.

    ConsIn sales very demanding and pushy. Management is either "old Boys Network" or "the new Kids on the block" (complete Teams from Oracle, IBM, etc.).

    Still a good place to work but a deteriorating environment for consultants

    Principal Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros- Good benefits package
    - Growth company
    - Learning materials readily available
    - Most projects are M-Th and remote Friday

    Cons- No mobility to new products when company direction changes, even if certifications are obtained in the new products
    - Sales is not given incentives to promote services positions for implementation
    - Price themselves out of project positions
    - Reviews are fully focused on billable time for consultants but consultants are not given the full picture of available projects
    - Full time projects any longer than a short duration are almost non-existent
    - Focus on RDS methodology marginalizes consultants
    - Bonus allocations continue to decline

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good solutions that give business & software experience and great networking with smart professionals, partners,customer

    Senior Presales Specialist (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsBusiness expertise in a technology field, training, great place to learn

    ConsPolitical in nature, German culture, Boys club/ Girls club culture. Highly hierarchical

    Advice to Senior ManagementBreakdown hierarchy and political nature. There is nothing called a healthy competition when you pitch regions against regions and then say ONE SAP.

    Great company to work for if you like to work independently and like to travel

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Prosworking independently, allows you to pick your areas of interest in the particular field you are working in, every day is different with work task, so it gets never boring. Depending on job, you get to travel all over the world.

    Consin certain areas career is limited, not much focus on people development, cumbersome internal processes, work load and travel can be extensive at times

    Advice to Senior Managementput more effort into people development

    For self-starters only!

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat sales culture. Selling trumps politics. Growing portfolio of products in the bag. Sales management gets directly involved in moving deals along. Comp plan is getting more complex every year, but it is still comparatively straightforward and rewards overperformance.

    ConsInternal processes are rigid, complex and poorly documented. Poor on boarding and training mean that when you start, expectations are high, and you're on your own. Teams, territories, managers, etc. are always in flux. Don't plan on having lots of friends at work. Very competitive. Product quality can be an issue for future sales. Product support needs work. Products are expensive. You don't get paid on maintenance and services. Net-new product only. Many roles have heavy travel.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSettle the team structures down. People need to trust each other and know each other's strengths and weaknesses in order to execute complex sales cycles well. Simplify, simplify, simplify.

    Not much career opportunities within AGS if you are not in HQ

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat compensation, life / work balance

    ConsNo career growth, too many senior managers and no direction from Senior Management on career options. So most people get stuck in same position for years

    Advice to Senior ManagementTeam Leads should be more knowledgeable about the product, team member strengths, so they can better guide the team members. Also think about making career options same for any geographical location. Currently it is only open for PA and CA

    Overall good company but cares little for non-Software employees

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGoes out it's way to build a sense of community. Above average pay and likes to emphasize how important work-life balance is for every employee. Good benefits and vacation. The public has a very high opinion of services provided and the product itself.

    ConsConsultants are constantly told that SAP is a software company even though more than 50% of sales comes from services. Policies are constantly tightened and tweaked to squeeze every penny from consultants who are making less than 20% of the hourly charged. Upper management is so tight with money that all consultants are overworked and more than 50% of incoming work gets fielded by partners.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen a company posts 9 straight quarters of profits in the millions everyone gets angry about squeezing pennies. Stop trying to make so much profit and instead focus on supporting the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
