    Product Expert

    Product Expert (Current Employee)
    Levallois-Perret (France)

    ProsGreat 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...)

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementListen 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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Software engineer at SAP

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Paris (France)

    ProsFirst class infrascructure and staff. It was a very stimulating work environment. The ability to work on long term innovating projetcs was nice.

    ConsThe 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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    European ministry for software : very good work/life balance, lots of politics and inertia

    Product Specialist (Former Employee)
    Paris (France)

    ProsVery good work/life balance, several recent innovation initiative that are real breakthrough for the market (Big data / hana, mobile, Saas) which bring as many really interesting professional opportunities. Global company where product management can have a global reach on business. Strong intercultural background, product management is often involved with many sites & cultures as well with different technologies. Pays well.

    ConsMany hierarchical levels, which brings executives too far from the reality and often inaccessible or unconcerned, with lots of politics, all this is bringing tons of inertia. Cumbersome organisation intended at fitting everybody, groups are sometimes redundant or useless.
    HR totally inefficient to enable mobility or support careers, while such a large company actually offers so many opportunites internally.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify organisation, focus on people competencies, do less politics, focus on markets instead of listening a handful of large customers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
