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

    Pros

    Very collaborative company with many great benefits, such as good vacation and very flexible workplace. Salary was competitive and received annual salary increases

    Cons

    Typical to any large company top down decisions can be made which affects daily work environment. Polital scene can be a difficult to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that focus is on the customer, at a high level the strategy which is in place is accurate but at times pushing to quickly to deliver on this strategy leaving customers behind

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at SAP as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    I gained great exposure to enterprise systems and overall management skills. I really enjoyed the people and the opportunity to work with cross-functional teams in order to deliver the most outstanding service to big name customers.

    Cons

    The program I was involved in did not offer the opportunity to on-board as a full-time employee, but that is changing very soon. Even though, I did not have the opportunity to continue my professional growth at SAP it did offer the opportunity to learn much about the tech industry.

    Advice to Management

    Retain much more young talent and improve internal Human Resource for part-time and full-time employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A good play to settle down decent money and perks many people on easy street so if you want to slow down this place is for you

    Cons

    To complex, to much infighting and not enough people actually care about anything other than themselves clearly 2nd class to certain regional employee base No clear path to upward mobility unless you befriend someone who has headcount Too many fiefdoms which just create layers and complexity and don't drive much of anything HR can move you at any time under new management or new role. Too many baby boomers who are insecure about losing job or territory. Will play political games and push younger team members down Not a market leader as it thinks and customer lock- in is changing

    Advice to Management

    Stop finding all yes people and promote people based on merit not based on attrition and time served. If you want to find the best and brightest, then go to where they are not just rehash the same ex-employees who left for more money before.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Lots of money to spend on events for executives and their customers.

    Cons

    Complete lack of focus on the customer or the employees. Politics abound and it is a culture of managing up. Tons of 2-4 hour meetings per week with many people never actually contributing. Not a culture of performance and allows politically minded to hide in middle level management jobs for years.

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

    Pros

    One of the smartest group of people I've ever worked with. SAP really does care about myself as an employee and where I'd like for my career to go. They are re-inventing themselves so they can help companies run better for years to come. Decent work / life balance. Compensation is above average for my field

    Cons

    It is a large company, that works with other large organizations so there will be complexity. Needs a little more marketing to let other companies know we are more than just ERP.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about the employees, the rest will fall into place.
