    I have been working at SAP full-time for more than 10 years

    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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    working 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.

    Cons

    in 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 ManagementAdvice

    put more effort into people development

    I have been working at SAP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Internal 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 ManagementAdvice

    Settle 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.

    I have been working at SAP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great compensation, life / work balance

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Team 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

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at SAP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Goes 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.

    Cons

    Consultants 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 ManagementAdvice

    When 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.
