    Pros

    What I love about SAP is how much they truly care - the company have invested in learning & development programs, lots of nice benefits/perks, and the mission & purpose of improving people's lives. It is truly part of the culture and motivating for me personally. And love seeing the impact being made.

    Cons

    Some departments are not as advanced as others. So while the company makes significant progress, we still have areas of improvement. But when I look back at my career, this is typical of any company

    Pros

    Great company. Great leadership. Challenging, fun and best work experience of my life. The leadership and people I worked for were the smartest in the industry. When I became very sick they rallied around me and took care of my every need.

    Cons

    I cannot think of one single thing that I did not like at SAP. The people were great the environment was fantastic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Your commitment to your employees and the community is what separates SAP from the crowd

    Pros

    Innovative company that cares about its employees and fosters growth

    Cons

    There are very few downsides that I can think of. SAP might not be a good fit if you're looking to coast by with current skills instead of learning new skills.

    Advice to Management

    Continue innovating and never become complacent

    "Silicon Valley Next Talent Program"

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

    Pros

    - Silicon Valley Next Talent (SVNT) Program:
    SVNT is a highly competitive rotational program and career accelerator within the products and innovation organization at SAP. The cool thing is that you can rotate on multiple SAP teams within the first year. At the end you may select the best fit based on mutually benefits. Therefore, you may develop a big picture mindset about SAP, while contributing your strengths on many impactful product features that are using by the world's most successful businesses. I think this unique program would be the best choice for all new graduates to consider.

    - Application Process:
    The review below is based on overall recruiting process of Silicon Valley Next Talent Program. The whole process took about one month (starting from the time that my resume was accepted and I submitted the survey form). The recruiter is pretty helpful and responsive with interview arrangements as well as status updates. The interview process has several rounds. The first round is talking your background with the recruiter. I learned about the recruiting process and what to expect after joining SVNT program. After that the second round interview is with the SVNT program manager, in which many behavioral questions were asked. I enjoyed the conversation a lot and found that the core values and team culture at SAP would be the perfect fit for me. I also felt connected with the program manager when I shared insights about my experiences and lessons learned. The third and fourth rounds are technical interviews with SAP experts in my field. The format and questions were similar to typical technical interviews with other large tech companies. One thing stood out was that all interviewers were super passionate about their work and shared many great things about working at SAP. These conversations really helped me to develop a better understanding about the benefits of SVNT program and I then decided to accept the offer from SAP instead of some other top companies.

    Cons

    The overall recruiting and on-boarding process in quite smooth and many detailed guidance is provided. I think the SVNT program at SAP is one of the best recruiting process I had ever experienced.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Empowered with the tools to get my job down and the latitude to go do it my way by my management. Achieve your targets and you will be supported. Very flexible work culture.

    Cons

    It's a big company and not everyone is on the same page. Internal competition for development resources leads to overlapping products.

    Advice to Management

    Get better coordinated at a strategic level with internal teams. The vision is there but not everyone inside is incentivized to support the vision especially when it means their area will be reduced.
