    I worked at SAP as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cant think of anything. Rate was OK

    Cons

    Very little sharing of important information to do your job. Definitely second-class citizen as contractor.
    Technologically behind compared to other tech companies. Does not feel cutting edge at all.

    Advice to Management

    Follow other companies. Contractors are actual human beings. Look it up. Dont look at highly educated contractors as dumb machines

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Household name in the Enterprise Software world
    Strong customer base

    Cons

    Too many major acquisitions over the past 5 years has resulted in a deceleration of the innovation and roadmap for many of the solutions that were always leaders in the space- SuccessFactors, Ariba, Business Objects, Fieldglass, Concur.
    SAP doesnt treat employees well at all. It's very management heavy and confusing to be apart of. A lot of management are backstabbing and only look out for themselves. And if a manager or executive is hired from Oracle, RUN AWAY FAST. They are ruthless.
    Lastly, getting a contract through the legal process with a customer is a close to impossible task. SAP refuses to negotiate in good faith with customers and many deals end up getting rejected even after being selected by the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better
    Invest in the companies you acquire
    Hire more effective leadership

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

    Pros

    You can work from home occasionally. Paid time off is okay and decent benefits package. Bonus is usually five percent of annual gross pay. If you have a problem with management I do not suggest going to human resources. They will not be of much help and will side with management.

    Cons

    You're just a number at SAP. You have to take late meetings since the company is global. If you have a problem I suggest keeping it to yourself. Do not go to human resources for help no matter the issue.
