    I have been working at SAP Ariba full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The workplace itself has a great atmosphere, and its good business to have such responsive supervisors and management. There are also plenty of development opportunities.

    Cons

    The environment can be fast-paced, the job itself will induce moderate-to-high stress, and the worm can often feel repetitive, but that's expected for customer support.

    Advice to Management

    Management does great listening to its team and would be doing the right thing by staying the course.

    I worked at SAP Ariba full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits; good 401K match; ESPP program. Good technology stack.

    Cons

    Too much politics and infighting. Engineering leadership is incapable of leading teams and driving quality work. Decision is made by a few individuals who were subservient to Chief Product officer leading to nepotism and shoddy product quality. Innovations have become stagnant due in part because of being in a very mature space and compounded by lack of vision from inexperienced senior product and engineering leaders. Engineers spend most time fixing bugs rather than participating in developing innovative products.

    Advice to Management

    Replace Product and Engineering leaders at least the first 2 rungs starting from the top.
    Bring in mature proven leaders from outside to change complacent culture.
    Eliminate nepotism especially in GTM functions like Solutions Mgt. and Marketing
    Make leaders accountable for actions

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with a good group of people. The old Ariba team is an excellent group of people.

    Cons

    Ariba is now SAP and its a different place now. Working at SAP can be a great thing if you like the big company atmosphere. If not, look elsewhere.
