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

    Pros

    SAP is a large organization which gives you the freedom to learn and grow in many areas during our careers. At SAP, you never stop learning as the company is always reinvesting themselves by finding ways how to help business run at their best.

    Cons

    Being in a such large company, it can be overwhelming at first. But take this is as an advantage instead.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    SAP is very supportive of their employees - there are regular training opportunities and movement throughout the organization is encouraged. The pay is solid and they reward employees who work hard.

    Cons

    I work on the client-facing delivery side and the work is intense. There is a lot of travel and to succeed at SAP you have to work hard. There isn't much work-life balance and you do have to work through a maze of complexity in order to do things (lots of steps, rules, etc). It's a good company but you have to learn how to navigate it.

    I worked at SAP (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's SAP. It pays decently.

    Cons

    That will wear off in your first week as you see what a mess IT and the Cloud groups are. No organization, no efficiency, people shirking their responsibilities with a "don't bother me" attitude. The dynamic with other groups is poor at best. No middle management that dares do anything. show any leadership, let alone rock the boat to fix it. If it wasn't for the huge price tag for SAP products, this would be instantly recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Can about 90% of the middle management and data center employees. They are just collecting a paycheck. Review organizational structure & align teams required to work together under same leadership (new) so that something can actually get done around there.

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was professional and helpful. Great teamwork when everyone felt that they were valued.

    Divisive leadership choices caused many to only look out for themselves.

    Build teams and monitor the leadership better. Bad choices by management imploded some excellent teams.
