    I have been working at SAP full-time

    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment. Most people don't have desks so it's incredibly easy to network without even trying because you have the ability to sit next to new people everyday. I've met executives, interns, professionals and managers just from being able to sit wherever I wanted to sit. You can work from home a lot because all you need is a laptop to get your work done. Everything is done virtually for the most part.

    Cons

    You can sometimes feel lost as a lot of employees' managers don't even live in the same state, and sometimes country, as them. So the first few weeks are about finding your groove and meeting as many people who can help you as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Ask new employees how they're feeling about SAP more frequently.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I'd been working for Ariba for 12 years when we got acquired by SAP. Since the acquisition, I've made more money and had the opportunity to work on more exciting projects than ever before.

    Cons

    SAP is large and complex and executive leadership is doing everything it can to simplify. Things are not bad but could be better and the good news is that executive leadership is on the right path.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the simplification efforts going.

    I have been working at SAP full-time

    Pros

    Working to solve client problems using the Best Practices of the application. Ensuring correct configuration of a client site so all configurations are working properly. Learning the applications, or modules within Strategic Sourcing. Building something is never the problem and lets you perform hands on work.

    Cons

    Too much expected hand-holding of the client. The expectations of what the position is are highly misrepresented across all stages of customer involvement (sales, contract signing, deployment overview). The customer is made to believe that we will configure their perfect site and customize it to their liking regardless of cloud application limitations. Once you are assigned to the deployment project, the customer fully expects you to be there for them 110% of the time and perform all duties. This position is sold as a dedicated consultant rather than a project manager to align the resources on both sides to deploy the customer. This sets up failure from day one because the goal of deployment or the project manager is getting the customer to walk on their own, but the customer has been sold on the idea that the deployment lead/project manager is to carry them on their backs the whole way.

    Advice to Management

    Push back more on the people selling our deployment services that we are not consultants to hold the hand of the customer each way. The customer is told that we are building them a fully working site as they wish to see. Instead drive home the fact we are setting up the framework to which the customer can build upon.

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

    Pros

    SAP has one of the largest installed customer base in the world. As an Account Executive, you rarely need to cold call or prospect to drive pipeline growth. With so many customers already using SAP software, you are able to build trusted relationships that naturally expand their SAP footprint. It is a great model for sales success.

    Cons

    Only downside is many layers of overlay salespeople competing for mindshare with core industry Account Executive and with customers.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify sales organization to reward account executives and not compete against each other across LOB sales organization
