    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.

    I have been working at SAP full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work, in terms of growth and culture. Products are used worldwide, and affects millions of people and businesses. Great management that is supportive, understanding, and always ready to listen.

    Cons

    It's a large organization, so expect processes, and long software pipelines. Gigantic code base can be intimidating at first. Onboarding experience doesn't feel very standardized. Very dependent on who you get as your mentor (called buddy).

    Pros

    Work Life Balance, good office place.

    Outdated technology. Be lucky enough to work on good technical stack. Most developers are incompetent and will be challenging to change their jobs to new company.

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

    Pros

    Nearly 20 years with SAP (and formerly Business Objects) and I truly enjoy my work and the people I work with. I have moved internationally multiple times and travelled extensively, I have had multiple roles and sampled a few more, and I still enjoy what I am doing and believe that the next opportunity is very available, you just need to go for it. The environment and the people make it a great work place. There is a continued effort to drive employee engagement and motivation, and management listens. Nothing reasonable is out of the question, it just depends if you are ready and willing to be part of the movement and solution to bring it to fruition. The pay and the benefits are motivating, and my salary has continued to grow over the years and provide a strong financial future for my family. There are continuous training and up-skilling opportunities including a range of exceptional programs providing support for you to achieve your goals.

    Cons

    It's hard to think of a con as I believe and I have proven to myself multiple times that if you have an issue its really up to you address it and bring a resolution, that includes engaging with management who I find responsive and supportive. As in any large organisation there are pockets and there are people that may not share the same motivation and willingness, however I find that I can bring some positive influence and improve the situation in collaboration with others.
