I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent compensation, the co-CEOs are phenomenal.

Cons

Some recent hires into senior positions diluted the culture. Used to be a better place to work 5-6 years ago. With Bill and Jim being so high up, the culture below has fallen apart. Many excellent people are leaving.

Advice to Management

Look at the upper management ranks (SVP level) --- Lack of leadership and empathy is prevalent!

    Pros

    Great sales culture. Selling trumps politics. Growing portfolio of products in the bag. Sales management gets directly involved in moving deals along. Comp plan is getting more complex every year, but it is still comparatively straightforward and rewards overperformance.

    Cons

    Internal processes are rigid, complex and poorly documented. Poor on boarding and training mean that when you start, expectations are high, and you're on your own. Teams, territories, managers, etc. are always in flux. Don't plan on having lots of friends at work. Very competitive. Product quality can be an issue for future sales. Product support needs work. Products are expensive. You don't get paid on maintenance and services. Net-new product only. Many roles have heavy travel.

    Advice to Management

    Settle the team structures down. People need to trust each other and know each other's strengths and weaknesses in order to execute complex sales cycles well. Simplify, simplify, simplify.
