      Incredible team and technologies

      Mar 1, 2021 - Industry Account Executive in Tempe, AZ
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Broad and genuine commitment to company purpose (make the world run better and improve people's lives) and promise (continually innovate on behalf of our customers). Employee talent, expertise and engagement levels are all above any organization I've worked with in my 19 years in tech/software.

      Cons

      Some internal processes can be cumbersome, although there has been steady improvement and this comes with the territory in large/global organizations.

      Great Place to Work!

      May 5, 2021 - Technology Solution Director in Newtown Square, PA

      Pros

      SAP takes care of it's people and is a highly matrixed organization that focuses more on getting work done and less on organizational reporting hierarchies. SAP is the worldwide leader of enterprise software focused on enabling key business processes. They are constantly innovating and have had good success with HANA, S/4 and their cloud integration and extension strategy. SAP's industry depth and expertise is unmatched. SAP Account Executives have executive level relationships at most of their accounts, which makes it easier to upsell other complimentary solutions into the same organization.

      Cons

      The gravity of the organization lies in Walldorf, where most of the engineering leadership resides. On the technology side, SAP has a unique, non-standard vocabulary (Cloud provider = Hyperscaler, Enterprise Data Warehouse = Business Warehouse, Meaures = Key Figures, etc.) The marketing of SAP tends to be 12-18 months ahead of reality.

      A place with wonderful colleagues

      Apr 9, 2021 - Product Management 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great projects, wonderful people, lots of constructive interactions, very respectful and safe environment to work. What makes SAP a great place to work is definitely the people working there. The products, topics, and technologies you can work on at SAP are very large. There are lots of opportunities to explore new roles as well as new fields within the company and to feel supported in your career evolution/switch. Lots of opportunities to learn, explore and being creative.

      Cons

      Very centralized in Germany, it can give the feeling for other locations to be outsiders or even not being considered as a location the company is investing in. Depending on your location and your team, better being prepared to have calls really very early or very late most likely on a daily basis, even as an individual contributor.

      Not a bad place to work

      Apr 23, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in Bellevue, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      No one ever seems to get fired, no matter how bad they do. The pay is excellent. The location and benefits are good.

      Cons

      No one ever seems to get fired, no matter how bad they do. This means low level managers who aren't fit to lead a dog on a walk desperately trying to get promoted who will do anything to impress their superiors. SAP is so big, if you have a problem there is no chance you'll ever talk to a real person in person. Everything is through ticketing systems, and it's all asynchronous, so nothing ever really gets solved. The good, competent people leave the company because of bad managers (this includes the good managers), which by and large leaves useless people leftover with a handful of good people pulling the weight of the whole project and not getting recognized for it (which leads to them eventually leaving).

      Reorg Dance Gets Old Quickly

      Apr 10, 2021 - User Assistance Developer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Incredible coworkers, decent benefits, and great stock program (Grow). Great bonus plan but that will change for next year.

      Cons

      Constant reorgs, old methodologies, groupthink - individuals are not expected to innovate; it's all or nothing when it comes to team decisions. Recent raise was insulting to long-timers who put the time in and work hard; no penalization to those resting and vesting. IT department is one of the worst I've ever had at a company; two ticketing systems so you never know who to initiate a ticket with - when you do, someone in that org will refer you to the other ticketing side anyway. No long-term growth or advancement opportunities.
