    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 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    SAP has a clear and simple strategy that is actionable.
    SAP isnt afraid to reimagine - it understands the changing context of the world we live in and does something about it.
    The focus on diversity and opportunities for all is amazing.
    You feel like you are part of something that really makes a difference.
    There is a bravery and courage in our senior leaders (especially our CEO) - it's inspiring.

    Cons

    Balancing short term and longer term can sometimes be conflicting.
    Internal scrutiny of customer engagements can sometimes get in the way of spending time with customers.

    Advice to Management

    The work that has been on our purpose and culture has been outstanding. The next stage of moving to higher trust, will deliver even greater results.

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

    Pros

    Great products & business outlook
    Development opportunities
    Flexibility
    Decent compensation
    Down-to-earth senior management
    Well outlined career paths

    Cons

    Company culture can significantly differ from a country to country - had an excellent and a rather dreadful experience
    Micromanagement amongst line-managers fairly common, as well as self-importance, I rather than WE approach
    Compensation not following a career promotion

    Advice to Management

    I've seen many great people leaving the company just because of the way they have been treated and the HR turned the blind eye. I think you should revert to building up management skills of your line managers ( senior management much better, was always open to ideas) and compensate people in accordance with their performance.
