SAP ERP is an exciting prospect for many. It leads to a career path that is stable in terms of pay and job stability. Many companies in the modern world use SAP ERP in one form or another.

1. You will get to work with Senior Business Analyst�s, IT Directors, CEO/CFOs. Working with these many high profile people allows you to build connections in the industry.
2. It is different from software development because you will work on different things. You can be a developer one day and then a business consultant the next, a tester the next, a negotiator/salesperson, a manager and the list goes on and on.
3. You will get to travel a lot. (Depending on the person this can be either a pro or a con)
4. You will never be out of work since there is such a large demand for SAP consultants and the rates are nothing to scoff at.
1. There is a lot of competition from individual contractors in the US resulting in a lot of the work being outsourced. The pay is, therefore, less when compared to a software developer�s pay.
2. Some people feel that the work isn�t as stimulating as software development. This is because you will end up solving business problems and not any logical problems.
3. Work can get boring and repetitive.
4. The bugs in SAP�s software will annoy you to no end.
5. Travelling is a con when you have a family.
6. Some people do not share their knowledge in the SAP consulting world.


Everything is a matter of perspective. If you talk to a cab driver, she/he will say that driving a truck is lucrative. Talk to a truck driver and she/he will say that driving a train is lucrative. If you move on to a train driver, a train driver will say a pilot�s job is more interesting. The bottom line is to find something you are interested in and talk to senior people who work in the field. While this list has more cons than pros, as already mentioned before it is all a matter of perspective.
