    Current Employee - Product Expert in Levallois-Perret (France)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, open communication, good salary and very skilled people working in this company. great culture and many opportunities to travel (at customers , internal workshops, Teched etc...)

    Cons

    You have to work on the hot technology of the moment to be recognized by your management (e.g. HANA, cloud etc...). Most people are aging (average late 40's) so maybe some lack of general energy around the workplace, but ok overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the customers before communicating on strategy. SAP is less focused on agnostic customers and it's not leverage its acquisitions optimally. Strategy is not clear in many areas

    Pros

    First class infrascructure and staff. It was a very stimulating work environment. The ability to work on long term innovating projetcs was nice.

    Cons

    The staff it too old and not dynamic enough. I felt overwhelmed by their lack of will to move forward quickly. In a team of turtles no one wants a hare to enter, because they would sufer from the comparison
