Want to leave world of sap ? Is it right

Dear All,

I have spent 11 years of my IT career,8 years of which in sap.I have been SAP ABAP consultant working with gold partner company of SAP.

I joined as a team member and due to good performance i attained rank of team lead within year.

I have been doing best from my end till today.I have delivered vast level of system designed in sap as well as java due to which new servers are in play

at client place.

But certain things sucks.My boss indirectly told me after my first promotion that i would not let you go grow professionally,no matter what you do.

I was very very shocked and could not understand why he said.I even expressed this in one to one meeting with his superior boss who had coincidentally newly joined.

But i think i was late in doing so as i could not express myself well.

He took his immediate joining boss in confidence and from that day superior boss shows no esteem for me,rather i am demoralised in every appraisal or any meetings that are held.Once other consultants fished this they too added fuel to the fire.They intentionally speak false facts, pranks at me as they know superior boss is suffering from this "Halo" effect considering me.

However i assume since i am delivering  to my best,somewhere he cannot prove me otherwise as that will be  injustifiable and thats the reason why i think i am able to spent 5 years in this company.But now he is accumulating and assigning tasks for me in high counts with impractical deadlines.Still i am fighting and trying to meet those deadlines.Boss is after all boss.

Superior boss makes no opportunity to prove me that i am odd man out example,while telling achievements he never speak my name being myself involved, but he passes credit to other employees.

Secondly he always tries to prove technicals are low grade people.This he tries to make all technicals feel by never letting them go to abroad.

Second thing is i realise being at client place supporting sap environment,we are treated low.We cant even say anything to peon because that is employee of client.We have worst furniture provided,with no insecticide sprayed leading to insects in area.

I apply new jobs but considering my 9 years experience(relevant) ,i do not get them in much count and thanks to present 90 days company notice period

which nobody loves to buy too.

All these points have made me internally negative and i simply want to leave the world of sap.

Should i try at some end users roles ?.My main question is sap ends ,what next can i do ?

    I'd not leave the SAP World just because your Boss is a moron.

    There will be better opportunities out there, but you'll need to be patient.

    You have enough experience to obtain something better.

    Don't give up

    After 8 years of good SAP Experience you should not leave SAP for your Boss.

    Rather its better to search for another SAP company and join there.

    You have got that potential, hence they are not allowing you to grow. So its better to go to a place where you can grow.

    3 Months notice is not a big deal for Big Companies.

    Search for a job patiently and one fine day you will get a good one.

    Becoming a End User from SAP Consultant is really a Bad Idea as per me.

    Regarding your Boss, cunning people will win most of the times but one day they would get a big Blow for all their deeds where as Good People (who do not harm others or who think good should happen to other people) face many small or medium difficulties but one day God will bless them in one way or other.

    This is ever lasting story and it happens every where.

    3 months notice, still companies are considering since most of the companies have the same policy. I am not sure whether there is a gap in your search, but still you can look for it.

    Check out with your friends / tutors / LinkedIn / Social media sites, try to connect to others to know the Job requirements in the company they are working.

    Update your profile in Job sites, every week to make it visible and new.

    There are times we reach a saturation point in the current company, so its time to get out. Dont worry about boss, they are always same and you will not sure what they are trying to make you understand.

    All the Best
