    I have been working at SAP full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The benefits are competitive, compensation is pretty good, there are always challenges for those who seek them, there is growth opportunity, and there is always an ability to learn something. SAP takes care of their employees (generally speaking) with the understanding that we will pay it back in kind. I, and others, have been very fortunate to always have opportunities at our doorstep. Technology and solution challenges are plenty, as there is always something to do. Christian Klein is brilliant... One could argue he became sole CEO too early, but those arguments would be severely flawed. He has a solid field of recognition and a strong grasp on what people in the company are doing. He's a financials wizard, but he keeps his heart very close to the technology. He's an absolute rock star in the making.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be an issue (particularly in nations without protective worker laws), and ancillary benefits are not always consistent from region to region. Some of this is to be expected. An unfortunate side effect of a large company, like SAP, is that that willfully ineffective people have an ability to hang around far longer than they should. They tend to hide in different departments or act as barriers to progress. Again, not a show stopper... but at times it can be an annoying impediment. Additionally, there is not enough visibility on the quality of individual (named) leaders. These individuals can either positively or (severely) negatively impact the quality, moral, and retention of great employees - thus, valuable talents depart (good leaders or good teammates under poor leaders) before it can be recognized. The one con that many of us have not yet learned to overcome is this: If you are NOT in proximity to the global headquarters, it is hard to get recognized and there is a bit of a glass ceiling on your upward mobility. There are fewer true growth opportunities. This means many people end up departing for other green fields in an effort to advance their careers and ambitions. SAP would do well to independently review their people surveys and outcomes for hidden talent in other regions.
