    Pros

    Process oriented, supportive environment. Good training

    Cons

    Should be no surprise but implementations always run over and canned scenarios never translate to 80% of work done at start of implementation. Arrogance and unresponsiveness outside immediate team members

    Advice to Management

    SAP has been a well-respected, recognized brand and I hope you can keep it that way.
