Great as a contractor but I wouldn't want to work there... full time that is.

I have been working at SAP as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

SAP has a culture of positive reinforcement and feedback with regards to individual employee relations. If you with the right team of people it can be a very rewarding and educational learning experience. Most employees have a very pleasant demeanor and the environment is very respectful

Cons

Unfortunately, there is also a culture that promotes over working and very little work life balance. In fact work life balance is an aspect that is up to each individual to enforce for themselves because there are very few company initiatives supporting it. Real vacations, time off, and free time are foreign concepts because you are expected to work even when you are not suppose to be working.

    I have been working at SAP as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    As an intern, you get the opportunity to work with some great people on real-world projects in a Lean/Agile environment. You can use your experience to springboard into other companies (that is, SAP looks great on your resume). The free lunch is a plus as is the onsite gym. Employees seem to have a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    SAP needs to decide if it wants to grow/develop its interns or simply use them as cheap labor source (fewer than 10% of interns convert to regular full-time employees). There is no formal internship program or process to expose you to other areas of the company. Thus, it is up to you to make your internship experience worthwhile. You'll definitely learn the importance of networking!

    Although SAP is a global company, the focus remains on headquarters in Walldorf so meetings are often timed to fit schedules there and not take into account other time zones. Like many large companies, there are lots of information silos with little knowledge sharing which leads to duplication of effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be truly global, you need to involve locations on all continents.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    SAP is really good company to work at. Its main positive sides are: compensation and benefits, corporate culture and values , work environment, flexible working hours, respect to each other's culture.

    Cons

    Big company which moves and makes the decisions slowly. Slow promotion. The company quickly dismisses contractors, without any explanations. Contractors don't really get majority of benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to employees' opinions and improve top-down communication. Try to reduce, a least a bit, level of bureaucracy.
