    I worked at SAP full-time for less than a year

    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

    Former Employee - Product Specialist in Paris (France)

    I worked at SAP full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good work/life balance, several recent innovation initiative that are real breakthrough for the market (Big data / hana, mobile, Saas) which bring as many really interesting professional opportunities. Global company where product management can have a global reach on business. Strong intercultural background, product management is often involved with many sites & cultures as well with different technologies. Pays well.

    Cons

    Many hierarchical levels, which brings executives too far from the reality and often inaccessible or unconcerned, with lots of politics, all this is bringing tons of inertia. Cumbersome organisation intended at fitting everybody, groups are sometimes redundant or useless.
    HR totally inefficient to enable mobility or support careers, while such a large company actually offers so many opportunites internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify organisation, focus on people competencies, do less politics, focus on markets instead of listening a handful of large customers.
