    Pros

    Large company with extremely talented employees.
    Brand recognition in the market provides a great opportunity to gain access to potential clients.
    Great enablement and career development

    Cons

    Must be able to navigate political landscape of management.
    The compensation upside is limited and dependent on ability to navigate political landscape

    Less focus on building a Millennial culture and recognize the talent you have walking the halls

    SAP is a high paced, performance based culture that continues to excel in a quickly changing software environment.

    Its long-term strategy is unclear for people who want steadiness and it has too many moving parts that rub against each other.

    This is an excellent company.

    Good products, great clients and talented employees.

    Former Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Boston, MA

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

    Pros

    Demand for the company's cloud product mix is very high, with strong pipe. Good place to gain front line exposure within the (B2B) cloud software space on a global scale. Flexible work from home policy. Very seasoned and skilled sales professionals throughout the org. Great place to gain large scale, enterprise deal making experience.

    Cons

    Time consuming internal processes that can slow down deal cycles. Too much emphasis on cumbersome and redundant sales forecast reporting. With the exception of a few managers, leadership is non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide that type of support the sales staff require to do their job efficiently and effectively. Facilitate a more cohesive company culture. Minimize the (seemingly) constant changing of internal processes that have a direct effect on the day to day duties of its employees.

    Lots of freedom to do what you like.

    Cons

    Politics, politics, politics. Extremely complex organization with lots of overlaps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the full-time politicians in this company.
