    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely love this company! Great people to work for, strong teams to work with. You'll contribute a lot, but you'll learn a lot as well. I'm completely committed to this company's success. I'd love to make this the company I retire from, which brings me to the "cons" list:

    Cons

    Lots of "simplifications" recently. That's the horrible euphemism going around now for layoffs. "You've been simplified". While I fully understand the needs to re-align business needs around our new product and delivery paradigm, I am concerned that as these layoffs have now stretched over multiple years that we are lowering morale, reducing commitment, and perhaps even the ability to deliver to our customers. Everyone's running with their heads down. Hopefully these changes stabilize soon so we can get back to being awesome for our customers. (and hopefully I survive long enough to be part of that.)

    Advice to Management

    In the effort to "run simple" everyone within the company is now running scared. Please identify an end to these changes and let internal folks know. People aren't collaborating now or doing anything to stand out. It's hard to strive for excellence in the current climate. We need to get back to functioning like the awesome team we once were.

    Pros

    Great, smart, nice people who are extremely collaborative.

    Cons

    Upper management thrives on constant reorgs, uncompetitive vacation policy, very strict travel policy, and many obstacles and cumbersome processes in the way of getting your job done.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, stability and compensation. Defensible leading technology markets with large global customer base

    Cons

    Slow to adopt to new markets (e.g. SaaS) and buying revenue via M&A will not scale current businesses. Many long term staffers not keeping up to speed on new industry skills

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate Cloud migration internally, proactively train existing employee base especially top performers.

    Great benefits and pay The work life balance is possible

    If you are smart and want to make an impact, you won't have it at SAP. To slow and process driven, lots of politics

    I worked at SAP full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great compensation and severance package. Interesting work building enterprise platforms and infrastructure.

    Cons

    Frequent architecture shifts. Proprietary development framework. Not open to remote development centers. Speaks Agile but does not implement Agile development.

    Advice to Management

    Architecture and platform needs to be more transparent within the company. Should be more open to distributed development teams given the global reach of the company.

    Pros

    Stable enterprise business oriented. Long vacation package. Fair health and 401K benefit. With $6.5 lunch credit and free fruit daily.

    Cons

    Since ERP makes a lot of money, all other team only try to make fancy products without generating revenue. A lot of recent managers are pushing to release products not for generating money from customer but getting credit for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smart, diligent people with high compensation instead of hiring more mediocre people with cheap salary. Check manager's performance is not based on how fast the product is released but how good the product is.
