    Pros

    Being part of the greater SAP entity and family.

    Cons

    Culture, work environment, and ways to manage the customer-facing (sales, presages, marketing, etc.) workforce by the current Canadian leadership team at HQ and in many of the regions is promoting internal fighting and friction, constant harassment to produce results without providing any true guidance or support, and lots of unproductive time due to archaic and heavy internal processes.

    Advice to Management

    SAP Canada needs to move back to the management style present 10-15 years ago, and needs to SIMPLIFY everything internally, from on-boarding to taking care of daily business.

    Pros

    Great work environment, good work-life balance

    Cons

    Very few promotion opportunities, if you wanna get promoted don't count too much on your skills, count on your connections and on your political skills

    Advice to Management

    Be closer and listen to your team members, because their success is simply yours

  6. SAP has a great culture of diversity and respect.

    Pros

    You can and have to drive your own career and success, but you have the possibility to act like an entrepreneur in a big company.
    Agile Development Methodologies are used and lived in cross functional teams of ten (scrum)
    State of the art methodologies (like Design Thinking) and technologies (like SAP HANA in-memory DB)

    Cons

    Not all projects are working on the cutting edge technology
    Its hard to understand how the company works, its processes and organizations at first (it will take you about 3 months!)
    Depending on the size of the location big career-steps might be limited - staying in one location

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Talent Management and Hire the talent of tomorrow to keep the spin!

    They use their own technology and programming languages that you have never heard before. It makes it hard to learn and get familiar with them. You will be confused in first 3 months.
