    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Nice (France)
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Nice (France)

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

    Pros

    Relatively flexible schedules & homeworking possibilities, average compensation.
    Job security (at least in Europe), although this may change in the forthcoming months.

    Cons

    A lot of internal politics which impact promotions, career progress, constant re-organizations, etc.
    SAP has been on strong budget cuts for at least 3 years which affects bonuses, possibilities to get training (in relevant topics), hiring, travel.
    Constant reorganizations that impact teams & projects and are done regardless of skills, individual (or team) performance. Constantly shutting down and restarting new projects has a strong negative impact on career and skill development.
    Management is incompetent.
    Working at SAP is not recommended at all.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Levallois-Perret (France)

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salaires correct mais beaucoup d'avantages ou cadeaux comme le CE, les primes et bonus, l'intéressement et la participation. Cela ajoute une sorte de variable non négligeable et faiblement imposable.
    Aussi très grande flexibilité dans le travail, d'un point de vue horaire, travail à la maison, quand on a des rendez-vous etc... tant que le travail est fait...!

    Cons

    Entreprise comprenant énormément d'employés, et donc beaucoup de pertes d'efficacité dû à l'organisation, au changement de direction et réorganisation, et il est difficile d'avoir un réel impact sur la réussite de l'entreprise à notre niveau d'employé.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restez à l'écoute de vos employés, ne privilégiez pas trop la rentabilité ou la "performance" (financière) au détriment de l'intérêt et la motivation de vos employés.

    Pros

    Bon équilibre vie professionnelle / vie privée, dialogue ouvert, bonne rémunération et personnel très qualifié. Ambiance agréable et de nombreuses opportunités de voyage (chez les clients, pour les ateliers internes, événements TechEd etc.).

    Great work/life balance, open communication, good salary and very skilled people working in this company. great culture and many opportunities to travel (at customers , internal workshops, Teched etc...)

    Cons

    Il est nécessaire de travailler avec les dernières technologies (comme HANA, les clouds, etc.) afin d'être reconnu par la direction. La plupart des personnes sont assez âgées (en moyenne, la fin de la quarantaine), il a donc peut-être un manque général d'énergie sur le lieu de travail, mais l'ensemble est bon.

    You have to work on the hot technology of the moment to be recognized by your management (e.g. HANA, cloud etc...). Most people are aging (average late 40's) so maybe some lack of general energy around the workplace, but ok overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Soyez plus à l'écoute des clients avant de communiquer sur la stratégie. SAP se concentre moins sur les clients sceptiques et n'exploite pas ses acquisitions de manière optimale. La stratégie n'est pas claire dans de nombreux domaines.

    Listen more to the customers before communicating on strategy. SAP is less focused on agnostic customers and it's not leverage its acquisitions optimally. Strategy is not clear in many areas

    Cons

    Le personnel est trop âgé et n'est pas assez dynamique. Je me suis senti submergé par leur manque de volonté à progresser vite. Dans une équipe de tortues personne ne veut qu'un lièvre n'entre, car ils subiraient la comparaison

    The staff it too old and not dynamic enough. I felt overwhelmed by their lack of will to move forward quickly. In a team of turtles no one wants a hare to enter, because they would sufer from the comparison
