    Pros

    ERP software still best in class; development comes up with some very innovative / solid solutions; great opportunity to work with highly intelligent and driven people

    Cons

    The suite of offerings (both software and services) is very complex and seems to be in a constant state of change. This makes it very difficult for a single individual to explain things to customers, and as a result, the account team becomes a small army of resources - each one specialized in one small niche of the overall solution. Ask 10 different resources to define something as heavily marketed as HANA, and you are likely to get a good 7 or 8 entirely different responses. I'm always surprised when I read other people listing work/life balance as one of the "pros" of working at SAP. I worked weekends and vacations just to keep up because of either unrealistic expectations or dealing with the added time required to work through the red tape that is required to do one's job. Every vacation request was challenged by my manager even though I had earned the time off, and I painfully recollect times when I was staring out at the ocean from my hotel room while I was on a mandatory conference call. Maybe it was just the team that I was on, but I found management to be aloof and clique-ish. A lot of management by intimidation, and then those same managers wonder why you don't reach out to them more often. The reality is that they (the managers) are under constant pressure and it all flows downstream.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the offerings, services and strategy so that people have a simple and concise story to tell their customers. Be more approachable and mingle with your entire team as opposed to the 2-3 people that you clearly like more than everyone else.

    Pros

    One of the smartest group of people I've ever worked with. SAP really does care about myself as an employee and where I'd like for my career to go. They are re-inventing themselves so they can help companies run better for years to come. Decent work / life balance. Compensation is above average for my field

    Cons

    It is a large company, that works with other large organizations so there will be complexity. Needs a little more marketing to let other companies know we are more than just ERP.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about the employees, the rest will fall into place.

    Global, great coworkers, challenging. Very committed staff that care about company and customers.
