    Pros

    Great, collaborative, collegiate culture
    Excellent salary & benefits across the board
    Smart colleagues

    Cons

    Too much Germany control in application development
    Consensus culture means decisions take forever and bureaucratic processes stymie local decision making and execution
    Unwilling to accept failures and move on such as business by design

    Advice to Management

    Give autonomy to SVP level people with a budget and revenue target. Let them make their own decisions and prove them.

    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 Management

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