    Pros

    Large company with unlimited resources. Very stable. Great benefits. Variety of career options. Good brand value.

    Too complex. Frustrating, bureaucratic with a huge German socialist working slant. Too many layers and frequent changes in leadership.

    I worked at SAP as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good health benefit, broad knowledge acquiring opportunity, get exposure to various of technologies. Big name on your resume, excellent geographic location. Free lunch and ice cream.

    Cons

    Bad team environment, and horrible team management at least in the team where I worked in.
    No respect to interns, be prepared for unfair treatment and unorganized work flows. A lot of complaint towards the future of the team. In the nutshell, horrible leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your team members as a partner with respect instead of
    coolie.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    A surprisingly large number of very intelligent engineers, some very interesting technologies, and a fair amount of freedom and flexibility. Palo Alto campus is very pleasant, with open spaces, decent cafeterias, a nice little garden... there is a fitness center, but it's a bit inadequate.

    Cons

    Restructuring is a biannual event, or worse. Political coups and hijacking of projects are common occurrences. Products are created by engineering, then sold as something else by a perpetually disconnected sales and marketing army, and suddenly a solidly engineered technology needs to be hacked into whatever it got positioned as for customers.

    HR in the US has been completely outsourced to offshore call centers, and things like compensation for paid leave, reimbursement for expenses, and help with problems with the health insurance provider can take months to resolve.

    Advice to Management

    #1 Priority - Hire a real human resources department, with on-site reps available to employees in all major locations. Fire whoever came up with the idea of outsourcing HR.
