    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A community of like-minded talented people who bring their best-selves to work everyday with a daily mission to be better than we were yesterday. Always being made to feel valued, heard and part of something exciting! I'm definitely a lifer!

    Cons

    It's hard to think of any - the fact that I've gained a few stone since starting probably is the main one; lot's of socialising, lunch and learns and cakes generally being floated about has had a detrimental impact on my waistline!
    In all seriousness we work very hard, but play harder - working for SAP isn't a role you should enter into if you aren't an all or nothing person. It's not easy but it's worth it!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employee engagement/feedback surveys - these are highlighting things we can do better and always positive to see changes being made as a result.

    I have been working at SAP part-time

    Pros

    A real focus on flexibility and work life balance that truly enables individuals to effectively juggle family life and work life. Office facilities are great - we've just got a new on-sit gym at HO, which is great! Lots of social events to help team bonding. A real focus on recognition.

    Cons

    Nothing significant but workload is busy but o a positive, you do have the flexibility to work around other commitments.

    SAP is a large global organisation with decades of success - SAP is not a well known consumer brand so audiences dont always appreciate the current and future direction of the organisation

    Great career options in diverse areas
    Lost of travel potential
    Great clients to work for and access to engage at senior level
    Good salary and benefits
    Company really respects its people and creates a great culture to work in

    Cons

    Limited review process in reality, its very flexible so therefore allows your reports to be less controlled and on message, don't believe it is effective

    Advice to Management

    When we periodically have redundancy to clear out, we hit the targets but at cost of loosing good staff
    Culture of some technical areas especially in PE is counter cultural to the strong consulting ethos of serving the customer

    Keep doing the same.
