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

Pros

-People want to meet you and connect you with others
-Great pay, great food
-Interesting experience working for large, multicultural business
-Industry's fascinating, esp. when meeting with startups

Cons

-Office politics
-Bosses advance their buddies
-Nobody has real mission

Advice to Management

-When starting projects, make sure there's substance. That it's not just froth. Don't just make another department that's going to just sell HANA. Make something meaningful or else it would be a huge suck of talent, resources, time.
-Stop advancing your buddies. Only hire talented people and that would solve about 50% of all office politics.

    Pros

    work life balance is better than any other company. It respects people's private time and family matters. Many people works from home if needed though people have to balance it.

    Cons

    there are too many incapable mid-management. Some good talents are not paid properly or embroiled into unnecessary politics. The senior management and executives are disconnected from working people thanks to mid-managers.


  2. "Human Resources - Intern"

    Pros

    Exposure to multiple areas of HR. Lunch. Involvement in projects (compete w/ other interns though)

    Cons

    No intern program or oversight on the workload you're asked complete. Work hours - expect 60-70 with no overtime. One out of 20+ interns were converted to full-time HR employees in the last 3 years. Internship expected to last for over 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Stop working interns like mules.
