    Former Employee - Sale Support in Newtown Square, PA
    Former Employee - Sale Support in Newtown Square, PA

    I worked at SAP as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Everyone is working hard, in an industrial way.
    - World-class facility (Newtown Square office has a cafeteria with lunch stipend, and also a Gym)
    - Very good compensation, especially for the Sale department.

    Cons

    - Hard to build long-lasting relationship because of many phone conferences.
    - Not much training for the new interns/have to find my ways around in the first couple weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company's is expanding too fast and the operations/human resources cannot keep up to fully support the change. I know that you are trying to be lean in your operations ("Run simple"); that's important but I would love to see more operations and human resources changes to help me succeed in my career.
