    Pros

    - Company continues to strive and invest to be at forefront of business and IT, SAP is an exciting place to work.
    - Great benefits, people, and pay
    - Lots of smart people to work with and opportunities abound
    - Mature processes, management and capabilities

    Cons

    - Sales environment is tuff but rewarding
    - Can be bureaucratic and political but what large company isn't.

    Advice to Management

    - Put more focus on customers than on sales, profit and the current quarter
    - Need to decide if you want to be in services business or not. If so, do what it takes to be a great services organization, not just a high margin one.
    - The amount of leadership change on the services side is baffling. Pick some winners and stick with them.
    - Do more around leadership development and succession planning.

    Pros

    lots of resources to go to if you need help with client issues
    free lunches
    can take clients to any events

    Cons

    career growth depends on who you know and how they perceive you vs what you have accomplished. the talent leaves and the mediocrity stays.

    Advice to Management

    chose leders who get to stay in the role for longer than4 months, give sales people their territories for longer than 6 months,

    Pros

    Pay including bonuses is pretty decent. There are opportunities for growth throughout the company.

    Cons

    Upper management is a boys club. Bonuses are played around with too much. Too many reorganizations that have led to low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the churning on employees every quarter and concentrate on software development.

    Pros

    I came over from SuccessFactors. SuccessFactors was an incredible experience. Great money, work/life balance, and you felt like you made a difference. Over the last year SuccessFactors has been completely taken over by SAP, which has killed the culture

    Cons

    I am in Sales at SAP. Sitting here on April 3rd 2015 our group STILL DOES NOT HAVE ITS COMPENSATION PLAN. If you are from one of the companies they acquired you will not be treated right. Internal system are awful. You will be forced to use SAP's technology for your daily job and its absolutely mind numbing that companies buy some of this technology. I was lucky to hit quota last year, but only 10% of the SF field reps made their quotas last year. SAP's slogan is "RUN SIMPLE", but if you are working here expect the exact opposite. One last thing.....Last year they told us we would not get commissions until May, which ended up being August. We literally did not get our first commission check until August. They pulled the same thing again this year. As of right now we are being told that the first commission check for 2015 biz will not come until May....my guess is they will continue to drag this out. All of this information is accurate and true....I hope this helps.

    Advice to Management

    Any advice you have for management will not matter. They are too big for your opinions to matter. At the end of the day they want the stockholders to be happy and do whatever they can to keep the cost of a sale down. Turnover is inevitable and will only hurt SAP over time.
