    Pros

    They support you being a unique individual, and have all the basics covered of flexibility, benefits etc

    Cons

    It's a very large org, some may not like fitting in as a small cog into a large operation.

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Challenging work, great team, excellent benefits, flexibility, truly global organisation, real relief in diversity . My boss gives me huge autonomy

    Cons

    Like all large companies, can be a bit bureaucratic. Being German based makes it a different type of culture, but interesting Main office location is not in city but is moving

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing great leaders. There are good ones. Need more consistency

    Some of the best software products and wonderful list of global customers.
    Most colleagues are loyal, down to earth and fun to work with
    Solid Purpose, Vision and Strategy

    Issues associated with being too big and hence siloed in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Flatten and get collaborating closer across board areas - Keep doing what you're doing :)

    I worked at SAP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The customers, SAP customers are some of the most loyal I have ever met and I loved all the interactions that I had with them. SAP takes a pretty conservative approach to change and taking on new trends, but when they do decide to take on a trend they tend to go all in. The employees are pretty loyal as well, you are paid well and treated well for the most part.

    Cons

    In my years at SAP I loved it, great work, new products, they do push that they are the 'Innovation Company' but they lack an innovation strategy, they are so far behind their competitors in many regards. HANA was a blip and put them ahead but I left because I wanted to innovate with my customers and SAP was too slow. The amount of re-organisations that happen, change is good but I always felt change at SAP put everyone 6 months back. You get pigeonholed at SAP, if you come in with a specific skillset, trying to move to other places and technologies is hard, Advancement is a challenge as well, unless you are very political. Once you get into management, you then just become a manager and you become stagnant. You don't have the autonomy that you get in other fast paced organisations.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't leave SAP, I left my management, I was sorry to go but very happy with where I went, the quote 'employees don't leave companies, they leave managers' is very true.

    Pros

    The Pay. It is the only way they can get people to join

    Cons

    Terrible Sales Culture. 40% Plus Churn rates in employees. Revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your culture and start to place some value on your customers and your employees.

    I worked at SAP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Major market presence, lots of product assets

    Cons

    No synergies across those products: only product-specific silos. My job is to jam my product, in isolation, into the square inch of the customer I can see. An insult both to the customer and to SAP.

    Advice to Management

    Not applicable. There may be competent managers in SAP... perhaps line managers in areas with well-defined roles... but all I saw were managers who only managed upwards... lazy mediocre guys who spun a story but delivered no value to customers, company, or employees

    Keep doing what you are doing. Proud to work for SAP.
