    Thank you so much for your review. It's unfortunate to hear of the issues with management. The mission of our leaders is to drive innovation, but we want our employees to enjoy what they do.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flex time, food voucher, competitive salary, stock match.

    Cons

    People are not accountable for their work. Local management looks the other way when it comes to managing us. A handful of people do most of the work, the rest get a free ride. A lot of people often call in sick and "work from home" but at the end of the day they have nothing to show for. Management doesn't care as long as the job gets done and they get their bonuses at the end of the year. On numerous occasions this situation has been brought up to management and we were literally told that's our problem, not his. I think this is a local problem, I can't believe that SAP would be this successful if this behavior was tolerated in other offices.

    Advice to Management

    To local management: do your job! To senior management: create a way to listen to your employees bypassing their direct managers.

    Pros

    The pros are SAP has global reach, positive impact to businesses and communities, high quality employees, excellent compensation, strong benefits, and superior product strategy.

    Cons

    The cons are SAP is still very much a German company where many of the decisions are still made in Walldorf. Of course, this is not be unexpected but could be more open to non-Germans.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on creating, driving, and executing on growth strategies that will take SAP to new heights in enterprise software.
