    Pros

    One of the smartest group of people I've ever worked with.
    SAP really does care about myself as an employee and where I'd like for my career to go.
    They are re-inventing themselves so they can help companies run better for years to come.
    Decent work / life balance.
    Compensation is above average for my field

    Cons

    It is a large company, that works with other large organizations so there will be complexity.
    Needs a little more marketing to let other companies know we are more than just ERP.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about the employees, the rest will fall into place.

    Pros

    I worked out of the US headquarters which had a great culture. Very european and relaxed yet everybody was working hard. I worked as an intern and felt as though I was given meaningful work and was actually doing something for the company, a feeling most interns cannot resonate with.

    Cons

    Too big of a company at times had to go through a multitude of other departments to get anything done.

    Pros

    + Few great individuals still left in this company although mostly in Germany.
    + Tons of material to all you want about SAP products and solutions.
    + Great company for sales jobs and have some really smart sales leaders all the way to the top.

    Cons

    - Bureaucratic setup that does not get much work done and too many middle manager who have no clue about software development.
    - Very many bad projects and failures brushed aside by smart marketing & sales teams. But not quite sure how long this will continue before things comes out.
    - Uninspiring leadership from management in running customer engagements.
    - Glory days are over and not a good place for software developers as there are not much imaginative work happening here.

    Advice to Management

    Need to trim middle management, eliminate bureaucracy and rejuvenate development community before its too late.
