    Pros

    Company has a track-record of success with a massive portfolio of customers globally. Opportunities to stretch into more challenging customer accounts and different roles. Well-implemented knowledge transfer and training to field employees. Ambitious and hard-working colleagues.

    Cons

    Along with the large size and stability, you get a rigid process-oriented culture where teams are slow to adopt new methodologies or ways of working. It's not the fault of individuals - it's just a very large company that doesn't like making mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Increase opportunities for employees to try different roles in the company through secondments.

  2. Overall positive....but internal admin can be painful!

    Pros

    New products and innovation, no longer all about ERP
    Great customers
    Co-CEOs are great along with CTO who is driving innovation at SAP
    Opportunity to earn consistent decent money
    Free lunch!

    Cons

    Big company politics!
    Big company admin overhead!
    Too much time focused on internal activities!
    Lots of demands on your time, not enough time spent on customer related activities.

    Advice to Management

    Become more customer focused and cut the admin overhead.
    Embrace new go to market strategy, but ramp it up over time - too many new folk into the organisation at once.
    Deploy our new solutions within the organisation to make life easier for all employees.
    Smile...!
    Appoint new MD ASAP.
