    Pros

    Great company, forward thinking, solid management team.

    Cons

    Huge organization, 75K+ employees means sometimes not as agile in decision making process, I have had a couple of experiences where new compensation plans have not been rolled out until well into the 2nd quarter, which causes frustration on the part of the sales team. Also there can be a bit of a "revolving door" in middle management as they work to get experience to climb the corporate ladder, causing some instability.

    Advice to Management

    great job making the customer's experience top priority now try making the SAP colleagues experience top of mind.

    Pros

    Great opportunites- it's up to you to drive your career. Opportunites are there to be taken, and those that drive and excel can take as many opportunities as they wish

    Cons

    Ego's- there can be a lot of large male egos that you need to work with, which adds an unecessary element of complexity to the job. sometimes it comes down to he who shouts the loudest and it blcoks progress and team work

    It is great to work for SAP Global Marketing, not so great to be on the regional hubs or the local teams...

    Pros

    In New York especially the quality of the work space is outstanding, you also get a great flexibility, get to meet worldwide stakeholders, have exciting business challenges... and most of the time you get to define your own KPIs!

    Cons

    SAP Global Marketing is a division of a over-complex structure, the giant German software company SAP. Its headquarters in New York but has ramifications in Germany and in a lot of other places. As in any big multicultural company the main issue is Politics.

    Advice to Management

    The top management has a tendency to recruit only senior employees who are done fighting for a better position. The good point is that there is a lot of very smart and talented marketers, however the company is aging and should consider keeping more interns on the payroll and open to younger generations.
