    Pros

    Work-life balance is fantastic. Not only does your vacation and personal time get respected, you are encouraged to make sure you take advantage of all opportunities given.
    Working out of one of the SAP offices also provides great benefits like gym access, paid lunches and a myriad of onsite events.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    I worked at SAP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Many employees can choose to work from home from one to three days a week depending on your relationship with your manager.
    Many employees have the flexibility to leave at 3 pm to pick up your kids or do other errands and log back in later in the evening.
    Many people on the team are very friendly and willing to help if you need any.
    If approved by one's manager, some employees could work from remote locations with a lower cost of living and maybe visit the California office once a quarter.

    My manager valued your opinion a fair amount. My manager would ask me frequently what the manager could do to improve the team culture or the general team atmosphere. My manager would also bring this up in team meetings.
    Management would ask you if you are happy or unhappy an what they can do to help you move to the role you ideally want to be in.

    Other perks
    Free lunches provided for full-time employees
    company matches 401k up to 5%

    Cons

    The work is very monotonous but the great people on the team and the great team culture made the monotonous work more bearable.
    The pay isn't very good especially for the SF Bay Area's cost of living.
    The opportunity to advance in this role is very limited, and the opportunity to learn is very limited.
    SAP has too many hiring freezes or budget freezes- this makes it very difficult for a manager to hire even if he or she has an urgent need to.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for employees to move around within the company.
    Make it easier for managers to hire employees.
