I have been working at SAP

Pros

respect for employees, excellent benefits, good salaries, recognition for hard work and time invested

Cons

the most extensive "meeting" culture I've ever seen in a 20-year career - I could spend 60 hours a week in meetings if I accepted all my invitations; as a global organization, the workday can extend from early morning hours to connect with the European colleagues all the way to very late nights to connect with the APJ (SIngapore, Australia) colleagues

Advice to ManagementAdvice

pick one day per week to be meeting-free and penalize people who don't obey

    I have been working at SAP

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity, a solid company, new things to learn. SAP has good products and a pretty solid management team. Of course, there are good things and bad things about SAP and there are good and bad managers. But, as a whole, it's a good company to work for if you can deal with working for a big company. It definitely doesn't have a start-up feel and after 4 years I still don't understand the org structure. But, you can grow at SAP and the benefits typically seem to outway the issues. Pay and benefits are pretty competitive and there's even a pension.

    Cons

    Hard work. Culture is to work very hard and long hours. SAP always wants more from employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on administrative activities and focus more on performance.

    I have been working at SAP

    Pros

    Flexible work/live arrangements. Truly global. Diverse employee base. Reliable cash compensation.

    Cons

    Advancement in grade can be a bit slow. Advancement in responsibilities can be even slower. Very process oriented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We could probably do without one full layer of management that we currently have.
