Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Director

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

Pros

I've worked at SAP for many years and I'm continually impressed with how helpful employees are to each other. It drives me to make an extra effort so that anyone who comes to me leaves feeling that I... removed a big unknown or roadblock for them. I believe these small behaviours add up to a great performance from the whole organization. After years at SAP, the one thing that has kept me is the ability to work on what I want. There are so many industries and technologies that SAP covers that you can start in a new technology area or run a large team or even have your new idea turned into a business. Finally, the benefits are very good - salary, bonuses, lunch card but more importantly I find for some are nice extras are the health benefits and support services like counseling to career path support and even resume writing. Also, I would like to add that working from home has been hugely helpful as I start a family as I can manage my life and work schedule together.

Cons

I believe it's hard to say there is a con with SAP, or if there is, they will likely solve it. It's more like, one is looking for red and SAP only has blue, or blue, green, orange, black. So a con... might be that SAP doesn't fit what one is looking for right now. Do some research and learn what SAP can offer you. SAP is a large company with many offices. If you want to work in a small social networking startup and like the challenge of fighting it out to overcome all odds for a big win (or big loss) then maybe SAP isn't for you. With that said, if you want to experiment in a safer environment, with strong support services, access to customers and access to experienced people then SAP could work for you.

Advice to Management

SAP listens. I give management my advice through existing internal channels and external surveys already.

Current Employee - Account Executive

I have been working at VMware full-time

Pros

I've worked at a lot of companies big and small and VMware is by far the best so far in it's commitment to the welfare of its people and the broader community with its emphasis on giving back.

Cons

Not all areas of the business are sufficiently resourced nor provided the best operating procedures and systems. You may find yourself doing a lot more admin and feeling less productive than you... would in other companies.

Advice to Management

Invest as much as possible on marketing. The market doesn't fully grasp the strength of our position in cloud / security.
