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

    Pros

    Having access to a fitness facility
    On campus. A free lunch everyday with lots of great options. Diverse work environment. Always something good fun on campus happening. A csa on campus that I can pick up my veggies at Lunch. I wonder sometimes how I got so lucky to work here!

    Cons

    Parking can be an issue. It is still mostly men running things and they are windows dominated. I wish there was better communication we recently had to change our passwords and the date it was due was changed and then many got locked out as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to be better and never just settle for good enough. Thank you for all you do for women.

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

    Pros

    A lot of companies say they have a great culture (and I have worked at a few companies before coming to SAP), but SAP REALLY does have a great culture. First of all, they care about the company. They invest a ton into the employees via hundreds of career development programs (you can take all types of training - media training, how to enhance your LinkedIn profile, how to work on executive summaries, how to code, etc), amazing company benefits (ranked best in stock purchase plans and high on our other plans like healthcare, dental, etc.), and fun perks (fitness centers, gardening, team building events, community service opportunities, happy hour, sports teams, company parties, subsidized lunches, etc.). It is really impressive how much is invested into the employees to grow and improve.

    Cons

    So many choices can ben overwhelming at times. But once you find your network and grove it has been a lot better

    Advice to Management

    Have a little bit more fun in our creative. Would love to see more humor in our marketing.

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

    Pros

    Very virtual environment- many employees work from home. SAP has done a great job staying at the forefront of innovation. I work with employees who are very engaged and excited about where SAP is and where we are headed! I also know a number of ex-SAP employees who are trying to come back - that says a lot!

    Cons

    As with any large company, there can be extra steps to go through to get things done. But this has improved greatly over the last couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employee engagement high - so far so good!

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growth and development is encouraged . Great benefits in terms of vacation/sick leave/parental leave for a company in the US. Leaders are generally trustworthy and transparent. Good work/life balance and flexible working hours. Culture focused on health and sustainability.

    Cons

    Many internal processes are frustratingly outdated and cumbersome.

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of the many resources available to you to develop yourself and your employees. Sometimes managers don't focus on the critical people management aspect of their roles.

    I worked at SAP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent place to grow and innovate. They were the Google, FB, and Amazon, in terms of innovation before those big 3 became what they are today, in my opinion. Free thought and the ability to come up with ideas and see them executed was the name of the game at SAP. As far as my experience went, I learned a lot, even after having been at other big SaaS companies. Hard but fair work, challenging but rewarding.

    Cons

    I heard from some entry level people and others that it was easy to get lost in the shuffle. That was a shame that it happened, and I tried to give my teams I managed a true voice and let everyone's opinion be heard. Sometimes it wasn't always easy in such a large fast paced company, but the frustrations were there sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an open mind to innovation that doesn't always fit the status quo...There were a lot of great ideas from people besides management that got ignored due to red tape.
