What makes it worth it for you? SAP consultants get paid a lot when they go independent. If you want to be a real weapon, learn the technical, functional and business side. If you can sell a SAP project and consult on SAP projects you’ve got yourself a fast track to MD / partner. There’s big money in SAP for the right kind of person.

Like everyone said SAP skills will continue to have market worth in the next several years, but what I don’t really enjoy is the impact of my work. It is stressful and challenging in terms of building and delivering a system but what the software does, does no truly excite me. I want to do something is is more applied and meaningful rather than collecting business requirement and writing specs/ config to make that happen in the system.

That’s me personally but I have a lot of coworkers who completely enjoy it. It depends on what your vision is for your work.

In the same boat as you, D4. Are you doing anything about it? I'm learning analytics but the competition is fierce and no one is willing to give a chance to a candidate like me without relevant analytics experience.

I’ve been in SAP Consulting for 19 years. Great career. So many challenging projects. It’s a great time to grow in this space.
Learn and understand the business processes that underpin SAP applications... pick an industry focus.... you’ll be gold. With the current immigration environment, the need for homegrown talent is going to sky rocket.

^^ you are right. What makes you think OP is homegrown talent ? is it because he or she is from Accenture?

As long as you doing functional side and not BASIS/Security go for it. The support teams on an implementation have a pretty terrible work/life balance

I have been functional for a few years now and if I had to restart, I would go security. your right in that the work-life is not as good, but the opportunities in firm and independent are better imo

Over the last few months my job work load has increased to helping more teams and I have been brought on to be a major voice on a product transition (I am one of three non managers helping make the decision and have more responsibility on the project then half the managers. The company is global (30+ teams)) and I can see that it will increase over the next months. The company I work for is known for not promoting internally easy. Anyone have any advice on how to make the transition easier?

I am into Deloitte support services now. Work Life balance is somewhat there. But mostly into internal projects and no exposure to client directly. Confused should I stay here or try to switch the firm having around 13 years of experience now
