    SAP is the best company I have ever worked for

    Current Employee - Executive Assistant in Palo Alto, CA
    Current Employee - Executive Assistant in Palo Alto, CA

    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 full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, and team work environment. Very good with work life balance. If you are on vacation, people don't expect you to read and reply emails. Although sometime you do reply for emergency situation.

    Cons

    Senior vp turns over is high. Usually we spent more times to educate the about the product than relying on the senior executives to set vision and long term strategy.
