    Pros

    Challenging but rewarding work. Never boring.

    Difficult to use internal computer system, which is a bit ironic when the company's motto is 'The best-run businesses run SAP'.

    I worked at SAP full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    European company with a global footprint

    Cons

    There are no real cons, there are not many companies especially in the US that are as great to work for as SAP. As I have to put a con I would say that the HQ is in Newtown SQ, PA on East Coast, NYC would be better!

    I have been working at SAP full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, lots of different jobs within company so you can change careers every five years without giving up your seniority. Generous vacation, lots of excellent community volunteer opportunities, Yaletown office is an fun place to work, SAP Lunch on Us program means that SAP pays you to eat at Yaletown restaurants.

    Cons

    Many positions require that your manager be located in Germany. Sometimes more focused on process than end results.
