    Pros

    The supervisor I worked under was really great about letting me explore certain projects that I was interested in. There's a steep learning curve and I felt like I really grew professionally during my time there.

    Cons

    The biggest downside for me was that I worked really long hours, but that comes with the territory I suppose.

    Pros

    Diverse global culture across all functions
    In a high tech market sweetspot
    Very aggressive pushing new technologies for being such a large company

    Cons

    Not as agile to change organizations given large workers council controlled workforce
    Can't cut costs and redirect investments as fast as smaller non-european based companies
    Think they can do everything themselves

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a way to reduce costs in Germany because it weighs down the company - makes us less agile

    Less reorgs - people are just "waiting and seeing" and are less action oriented

    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.

    Base salary is little weak compared to other large enterprise companies.

    You are doing a good job.
