    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Varied and interesting work (usually!!) and training is actively encouraged
    Flexibility and empowerment to let you get on with the job from wherever e.g. working from home
    The benefits package is excellent (not just financial)

    Cons

    Some areas of the organisation don't carry as much weight as others
    The company is obsessive about some things, which detracts from the original purpose and becomes adversely negative
    Opportunities to work within different roles in the UK can be limited and don't fit everyone e.g. especially compared to the organisation in other parts of the world

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real and down to earth. Cut down on the acronyms and spin

    Pros

    Great remuneration and work life balance.
    Good offices and flexible working opportunities.
    Lovely people.

    Cons

    With such large company, it can be difficult to remain agile.
    Sales teams have a large focus, leaving admin or back office staff unrecognised at times and un-thanked.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the admin staff who support the business.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I joined SAP as a result of an acquisition and can honestly say that during the span of my working career, 36 years, it ranks as one of the best companies I have worked for. Why? It gives opportunities. It listens. It is open. It strives to be the best. It is caring. It has morals.

    Cons

    Not wishing to sound negative a few gripes may be the awkwardness of getting to the UK HQ, but that is minor.
    As with many companies, travel restrictions to save costs are fully understood but can be a hinderance, especially when trying to put the customer and opportunity first.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't call it advice, as management are certainly doing a superb job taking the company from strength to strength. However, although keeping up with innovation is paramount, don't put aside exisiting successful products for new innovations. Invest in them. At times it seems that exisiting and new products are like children's Xmas presents. I'll lay with them until a new one comes along and then I'll ignore them forever more.

    I have been working at SAP (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging busy environmernt filled with smart people with a "can do;" attitude. I enjoy working at the most senior level with my clients helping them solve complex business challenges; it is testament to SAP that we are viewed in so many of our clients as a trusted partner enabling their success

    Cons

    Some of the systems and process' are frustrating; however this is recognised by our management team and huge progress has been made in making systems and process' more user friendly. Being a "lean," organisation sometimes people are put under a lot of pressure with the amount of work that needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    I love the direction the business is heading in; the lead from the top is customers first, SAP second and business unit third. Customers are the centre of everything we do and fulfilled happy employees engage more positively with customers. There is a real feeling that we are all in this together, we look after our customers and we look after each other.

    Pros

    SAP pays well, treats its employees with respect and decency, looks after its employees with training, Job Shadowing benefits, support etc

    SAP also looks after the area around it with CSR days, support for big events/issues in the country, showing its more than just a business.

    SAP communicates well about what's happening, from Bill McDermott through to local management.

    It also provides excellent worklife balance to its employees with home office working etc enabling you to live a good life as well as work hard.

    Cons

    They expect hard work.. but with the above... you aren't afraid to give that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking after your employees the way you do, because it incentivises them to work for you and the company.

    I have been working at SAP full-time

    Pros

    There is a genuine desire to innovate and experiment. This is done without dropping a commitment to quality. Employees are trusted to be themselves and bring what they can to the company.

    The benefits are also very good.

    Cons

    Very occasionally it is possible to get bogged down in corporate processes. They exist for good reason but are not always easy to navigate. However, the company are aware of this and do try to fix it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on trying to simplify essential corporate processes.
