Current Employee - User Experience Designer in Palo Alto, CA

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

Pros

SAP is a big corporate where everything is very systematic and professionally done. The User Experience field is also going through a major facelift, which provides a lot more design opportunities than before.

Cons

It is hard to make a huge impact as an employee because of the size of the company, and the fact that SAP products are not design-oriented.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Because our company is so big, the role of team's manager will be the key in guiding the team culture and productivity.

    The social experiment to hire to a HR P.C. profile and not the person continues

    Current Employee - Sales in Palo Alto, CA

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    SAP has great products and good people at the execution level. While the sales comp plans have suffered this year, the overall pay is at or above market. If you do well at SAP, it is one of the last few places you can make a million dollar W2 in a calendar year.

    Cons

    The issue is with middle management. The moves they are making are not in the best interests of the people, but of the person’s career ambitions. Bill, Rob, Rodolpho are all smart and very capable at the top, but the people below them in the middle management roles are questionable. The direct sales leadership works hard and cares about the people, but at the GM and national level they keep playing games that demoralize the field sales teams.

    In the West specifically, they have had 3 GM’s in under a year and the last two were social experiments with unqualified women. The most recent GM was installed this past week and based on credentials it is obvious to everyone that the deciding factor was that she was a woman.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the local people in the region. Ask them what they need in a leader, for support and what changes are needed before making rash decisions. Stop promoting women based on gender only, it demoralized women more than you know.

    I worked at SAP full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Large company, pay and benefits are great, plenty of product development and support, technically challenging, can get lost if you want to, travel is available, some dedicated professionals.

    Cons

    If you are more experienced they generally will drive you away and you have to adhere to whatever your manager wants or they will make you feel unwelcome. Set goals that are primarily not attainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more inclusive and accept what is happening to your customers and in the market place in general and learn to recognize the value in people.
