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

    Pros

    I have a year long internship at Hybris in user research, and I'm very excited to be a part of a company with such a strong focus on user experience design. It's very easy to get the tools you need to succeed (software or hardware) and people have been very friendly and open to collaboration. I also appreciate the strong focus on constant learning ("stay curious"), and the downtown Montreal location is amazing. The hiring process relies strongly on internal recommendations, so definitely make connections with folks who work here if you are looking to join.

    Cons

    None! I've heard from people who work here that communication can be an issue as its such a large company - I haven't experienced it yet but from what I've heard, if you take the initiative to follow up then things can move smoothly.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance
    Above average benefits
    Some very successful areas, teams and employees

    Cons

    Difficult to change positions
    Lots and lots of politics, middle management only interested in themselves.
    Lots of time spent 'on the bench' due to middle management
    Archaic, conservative technical culture. Does not want to change.
    Cannot retain 'top-talent' employees.

    Advice to Management

    Remove management layers, start promoting technical experts. Invest in your technical employees, you're a software company. Fix your development culture and the products will take care of themselves.
