    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Palo Alto, CA

    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.

    I have been working at SAP

    Pros

    The company is large which provides a lot of good opportunity and the focus on social responsibility is pretty inspiring. Communication pushed down from top is usually clear and consistent across organizations.

    Cons

    There are way too many reorganization exercises. Even when you're not directly impacted, you are 2 degrees of separation from someone who is and the culture/ work morale can be taxing. Communication from the "trenches" seems to lose meaning as it gets pushed up to upper management ... like the telephone game.

    I worked at SAP

    Pros

    Company is growing and establishing itself as a cloud player. Opportunities abound for those willing to stretch themselves out of their comfort zone. Work environment is good and working from home options are available depending on the organization you belong to. Excellent place to learn how to work in a large global environment.

    Cons

    Management is concentrated in Walldorf,, so unless you are very well networked or have had the opportunity to work in Walldorf you may be limited for upper management positions.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility work from home.
    Into cloud software. That is nice
    Engg team collaborates with PS team for enhancements which is good

    Cons

    No pay raise for 2 years
    Mgmt says no growth util Sr Mgmt or your current manager leaves company
    Benefits cost to employees increased more than more than 150%, in 2015

    Under estimate work and then ask team to be efficient
    Being in HR space but HR partner never responds to employee emails in time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your management and drive employee growth. Do some anonymous survey about group managers. don't do annual review just for sake of doing. Give at least cost of living pay raise.
