    Pros

    Great place if you just want a job. Ideal for new new immigrants and people with family obligations.

    No proper career growth path. Extremely hierarchical management structure. Too many clueless people with decision making power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up your mind and listen to your lower level employees.

    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.

    The pay is not as high as other companies of the same category

    Abstracted thinking and formulating a vision is great but the lack of thinking of the working details may not make it feasible to achieve such great aspirations.
