    Pros

    SAP offers a good work-life balance, challenging work as well as an amazing approach to the IT industry

    Cons

    SAP needs to work more on HR and on people development. SAP is a very good company if you are a self and quick-learner.

    Advice to Management

    Broaden HR training plans and allow people to get trained on other area than their own work

    Pros

    Good benefits - Very interesting products - Well structured internal systems - senior and smart coworkers

    Cons

    management by fear, random downsizing - poor career evolution resulting in a mercenary company

    Advice to Management

    start considering internal promotion rather than external hiring when looking for a manager. I've never seen ONE first line manager coming from internal promotion.

    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.

    Pros

    Nous avons chez SAP de nombreux avantages sociaux : particpation, intéressement et de très nombreuses primes.

    Cons

    En terme d'inconvénient, je dirai que SAP est une très grosse entreprise, et nous ne sommes que petit, tout petit salarié au coeur d'une gigantesque machine

    Advice to Management

    Il serait bon de bien prendre en considération les avis et opinions des salariés.

    Bureaucracy and too many smart talkers

    Advice to Management

    Accept that Waldorf is not the center of the world for product development

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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
