    I worked at SAP as an intern

    Pros

    Work environment depends on the team. But mostly cool people to work with. A lot chances of networking because of the frequency of events that happen inside SAP campus. Learn and grow.

    A lot of interns working at the Silicon Valley campus.

    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.

    Growth can happen or it can't - just depends on how strategic you are

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

    Pros

    - Well-organized and clear top-down communication on goals and vision
    - Stable business growth with sound strategic investment in the future
    - Maximum flexibility when it comes to work hours and working from home
    - Plenty of opportunities to move around within the company, which is encouraged
    - Focus on employee development
    - Great benefits (health benefits, free lunch, generous vacation and employee support resources, focus on giving back to the local community)
    - Environmentally sustainable (and beautiful!) campuses and socially responsible business practices
    - Reasonable work/life balance within the marketing organization, and most others within the company.
    - Diverse and inclusive culture

    I think it's telling that many people who leave often come back or wish to. It also says a lot about a company in Silicon Valley when many employees have been there for 10+ years. SAP is a great company to work for and I feel privileged to work here!

    Cons

    - Difficult to keep demand gen skills sharp because SAP marketing is not as innovative and cutting edge as leaner organizations
    - Q1-Q2 can be travel- heavy as T&E budget usually gets cut off in 2H
    - Frequent re-orgs can be challenging to get used to
    - Any large company can be difficult to navigate and learn who's who.
    - Compensation is pretty rigid. It's fair but don't expect large pay increases. You can definitely make more elsewhere but the benefits make up for this drawback.
