    I have been working at SAP as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, working for home is appropriate or working remotely is also acceptable. The people (Staff) are really helpful and friendly and are not competitive. Everyone works as a team! There are Jam Groups you can join that are very informative. They have on-the-job training and Open SAP learning center where you can take on-line courses should you choose to do so. The salary is excellent!

    Cons

    Sometimes the executives and be a little finicky. Sometimes they will be very moody, but that's just their way of getting their point across. They CEO's VPS and SVPs have very hard jobs to fill. The Administrative Support team is there to help them advance and do their jobs better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Innovate, Simplify, Communicate, and make SAP the great company we all know it is and can be in the future!

    I have been working at SAP

    Pros

    As an employee I feel that we are very well taken care of. The organization regularly updates the HR Programs and People Policies to build an employee friendly work environment. From free food, to free transport, to a creche within the campus, to extended maternity leaves, to a gym, yoga class, to a book club, to theater, music and dance interest groups, to a runners' club - we have it all. People are happy to come to work because they are allowed to indulge in their hobbies within the campus itself.

    The company also makes ample arrangements like the apphaus, the code marathons etc. to encourage people to think and come up with innovative ideas.

    The best thing about SAP, however, is it's commitment towards Diversity and Inclusion. In addition to very Inclusion friendly policies for women, early talents, mature talents, currently we have around 10 people worldwide who are on the Autism Spectrum.

    Cons

    At times I feel that the management concentrates ONLY on the top performers and does very little for the average ones.

    Current Employee - COE in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I have been working at SAP full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunities: Training in SAP and partner technologies which is very valuable across all industries and organisations, control over the direction of your role within the company and your team, a lot of opportunity to travel worldwide for work..
    Perks: Competitive starting salary with great benefits including health, dental, pension, tax saving schemes, free lunches and well subsidised breakfast & dinner, Flexi time etc...
    Environment: Friendly with accessible managers and team leads, smart / casual dress code, hard work is recognised and for a big company - one to one mentoring is still used & is effective. The average age is very young at 30ish - with many interns rotating in & out every year which creates a good buzz

    Cons

    No real negatives to mention.. One thing that is challenging is the onboarding process - everyone's experience is different as they often start at different times and many new hires in recent months / years means that start dates don't always coincide and some colleagues start on their own while others in a group. There is a good general onboarding structure but this varies across teams and lines of business - a lot of self motivation is required in order to get the most out of your first few months of ramping up. You need to famiarliase yourself with internal processes and read / study material related to your role without being asked and often during your spare time - you will need to have a keen interest in the job and work hard to develop core technical competencies yourself so that you can effectively learn SAP related material / technologies and do your job well. However - the Buddy / coach system is effective and supportive once you actively participate in your own development.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity, fantastic calibre of employees, strong leadership, clear and transparent leadership who are approachable and open. Freedom, flexibility, facilities, friendly, great training and development. Brilliant.

    Cons

    this is a time of transition and transformation. Goal posts are set but how we get there is evolving, if as an individual you aren't comfortable with change then this is not the company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be bold and move quickly.

    I have been working at SAP as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I reallly like their culture: flat hierarchy. They treat interns and full-times equally. Everybody can have their voice heard.
    There are interesting and challenging tasks. Collegues are extremely nice and professional.

    Cons

    too corporate
    Some policies are bizarre. eg. it takes very long to get approval to use a library in production code.
