I have been working at Savantis Group full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Lots of hands on SAP training to develop your SAP skills. Most firm will place you in a class to train your for 3 to 5 weeks on SAP and how to be a successful consultant. Savantis will get you on a project the day you start working.

Cons

HORRIBLE SALARY!!! You start with $10/hr then once you earn your SAP cert, it goes to $45k. They call it market price but all other firms that offers SAP services pay their college new hires at $55k. Only accept their offer if they are the SAP firm that gives you an offer and you can survive with $10/hr for the next 6 to 9 months

Advice to Management

Stop the annoying $10/hr starting salary and offer a higher salary that matches the other SAP firms. In this recession there are thousands skilled college graduates seeking an opportunity to launch their career in SAP. The most skilled graduates will accept the highest paid offer or the most famous consulting firms. The weak salary will cause Savantis to lose their star consultants and graduates with no talent and no leadership skills will end up taking the offer.

    Pros

    The company has done the impossible, make SAP affordable to mid-sized organizations! Great product, people, management, and company culture. The SAP as a Service product is world class and a product you can really stand behind. The people are friendly and great to work with. Management is transparent and you get to work at your own tempo as long as the work gets done. Good work life balance, benefits, and fun company events such as sail boating and company retreats. This is a smaller company so a great advantage is having a more personal relationship with upper management and receiving training on the fly. I can easily walk into management's office and talk about anything. This is one of the best companies I have worked for and is really going places.

    Cons

    Smaller company so not much formal structure or robust systems in place. Really have to think outside of the box to get results. It is great to work with creative and intelligent people, but many great ideas do not come to fruition.

    Advice to Management

    Just a couple things:

    1. SAP is simple and modern business processes are relatively easy to understand, but businesses we sell to are very complex with out dated systems and unique complexities. I suggest in-depth training classes geared towards understanding dated business processes or older IT infrastructures for sales team.
    2. Keep up the good work. I'm fascinated by the level of thought put behind our campaign strategies and synergy. When a good idea is executed it is followed through thoroughly.


  2. "The little engine that could!"

    Pros

    Best people in the world to work with, super exciting environment with unlimited potential for growth. Flexibility for family time, a family like atmosphere. No one has it out for anyone here. People are all smart, respectful and knowledgable.

    Cons

    The snack box they keep with abundantly stocked junk food for free tempts you more than the fresh fruit they make available too. Customer retention is a serious challenge here. The Sales process is cold call driven vs relationship driven and there are very few local customers in metro-philly where there are a dearth of SAP customers everywhere you look in the region. But Many of the Savantis customers are out of state which makes the relationship remote mostly and possibly much less warmer than it could be if it were local. You can't cold call valuable relationships into existence out of thin air.
