    Pros

    Working as a contractor you get to learn from the professionals and work with a vast array of various
    personalities and diverse co-workers and executives.

    Cons

    The challenges of being a contract employee is that you work for a staffing company instead of directly for SAP. Therefore you have less access to all that is available to permanent employees.

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity for growth and a chance to wear many different hats. Good compensation/benefits. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Projects often get caught up in politics and hierarchy. Often too many cooks in the kitchen that slow progress or hinder innovation

    I worked at SAP as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    My position was Mobile User Experience Designer and Developer Intern. The team highly values personal interest and development.

    Cons

    The opportunities are kind of random. Not everybody can get their hands onto a big and significant project because of timing.

    Current Employee - Senior Support Engineer in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Senior Support Engineer in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Great benefit and atmosphere
    - Lots of path to take for your career
    - Acknowledging and guiding professional growth (In short it is part of their process to ask you what do you want to do and they will help you get there)
    - For high caliber individuals, more room to mold your career

    Cons

    - If you want to grow in the company you better say yes to moving (not sure if this is a con but it could also be a pro)
    - People who exceed in performance may get better benefits (this is true with all companies)
    - If you think you exceed in performance and if it does not match their calculation and matrix, do not expect much at the end of the year (raises and others)

    I worked at SAP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    SAP provides great benefits, lots of learning opportunities, above average salary and interesting work.
    Due to the many products and sub companies, there are always new things to challenge yourself.

    Cons

    Due to the upper management being located in California and Germany, the decisions for the Colorado based projects can be made with out full knowledge of all the potential implications.
