    Pros

    I love working for SAP for the following reasons and it is one of the best companies.

    The company genuinely cares for its employees. I work at SAP Ariba where the culture is fast paced, start-up like, new innovation and new technologies are on-boarded fairly rapidly.

    The senior leaders are humble, empathetic and approachable. No matter how busy they are, they make time for their employees.
    SAP offers a wide range of opportunities for employees to learn and advance their career.
    SAP has a truly embracing culture, a culture where diversity brings comfort not conflict.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    I have a lot of respect for our CEO Bill. Bill and all executives do a fabulous job.
    Please consider a competitive stock/equity offering to the Palo Alto employees.

    An amazing experience with amazing people. The workplace is diverse and everyone is eager to help you in any way. My managers were very nice and approachable and listened to you and actually wanted to hear your input. They have me a lot of freedom to experiment my own way.

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

    Pros

    Stable large company
    Free food
    Nice campus

    Cons

    The manager of my team, head of emerging technologies, big data IoT was an absolute joke. Never have I come across someone so pathetically under skilled and yet allowed to maintain a stronghold of running a team. The manager didn't know anything about technology except how to rise up the management ranks.
    Entire teams of people there know nothing and accomplish nothing.

    Advice to Management

    When an entire team discusses with upper management about how pathetic their managers skill set is, please listen to them. I and many other people have since quit the company due to their incompetence. No one wants to work on a losing team.
