    Pros

    SAP has great benefits and close enough to match companies like Google, Microsoft, etc.
    Freedom to work and learn
    Helpful people and lots of online training available to learn.

    Cons

    Under DBS finding a project can be a challenge.
    Self-initiative is required to make our career.
    Traveling can be hectic and health issues

    Advice to Management

    Please work with resources and groom them and make them experts in particular areas rather than just asking to work on anything to get billable.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at SAP in November 2007.

    Interview

    - Phone interview with recruiter
    - phone interview with hiring manager
    - ln person with hiring manager - about 1 hour
    - three phone interviews with executives

    All interviewers were with SAP about 5 years
    Technical questions early, more business scenarios later

    Lots of drilling down into specific experience

    In retrospect I ddin't ask enough questions - all interviews went very quickly

    They went dark for almost 3 weeks and I accepted another offer
