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

Pros

Very decent benefits, smart people, interesting projects depending on the business unit.

Cons

Typical large enterprise issues- slow processes and inefficiencies, lots of bureaucracy and confusion

Advice to Management

Train better managers better, people jumping from technology to management generally make life very hard for themselves, their reports and the company

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Truly international, global organization where you can interact with people from all continents in a given day.
    Ownership and flexibility - most people work from home office
    Company has lots of resources and small ideas can become big very rapidly if you manage to set the wheels in movement.

    Cons

    Hard to go up the ranks, political environment from VP-level and up.
    Very complex organization that is perpetually changing due to periodic reorgs. You need to be a very flexible person who adapts to change quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Increase meritocracy, look outside of your close circle for talent.
