    I have been working at SAP full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people, the product set is extensive for Enterprise clients, the salaries are at the top end of the range for the business.

    Cons

    Intense management style, SAP keeps sales employee's "anxious," a lot of the time. This comes down from a country/regional level rather than direct first line management who are very good for the most part.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    SAP offers great opportunities to develop and grow and achieve success. There a large focus on the creative, design and agile solutions as well as all the latest technologies and innovations. The people you work with are great and feels like a much smaller company on the day to day. The benefits and recognition are very good and includes a great free restaurant.

    Cons

    Head office location is Feltham, great for airport but little out of central london. There are offices in the city also, but are smaller.

    Advice to Management

    I like the direction of travel and the culture.

    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 full-time (More than 5 years)

    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 (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
