    I worked at SAP as an intern

    Pros

    wage is okay for full-time, but not for intern, the lunch is alright, people are nice, the project for intern is fun

    Cons

    average age is like 40, they are not the most up-to-dated, most of them do not know about machine learning

    Advice to Management

    make the company young again(?), keep things move fast and efficiently, recruit younger generation

    Pros

    Global company, good ERP brand, flexible work schedule, strong executive leadership team

    Cons

    Company values too much on employee tenure instead of merit. Majority of the employees are lifer and their skills are not up to date yet they feel entitled because of their tenure and internal network. Employees don't have input in decision making. Internal food fight and politics. Indian clique in R&D and boys club in sales and marketing in North America. Weak senior/middle management - throw team members under the bus, intimidate employees with punishment to teach them a lesson of obedience, empire building, fear based culture, no trust and transparency. Too many re-orgs and senior management turn over.

    Advice to Management

    I admire the executive leadership team however many of their initiatives and values are lost down the food chain because of many layers of incompetent senior/middle management. Stop pushing half baked products to your customers. HR leadership needs to step up and fix the hazing/punishment practices condoned by some managers. Hire from outside so there's new perspective and fresh ideas. Diversity/inclusion is a culture not a slogan. Go beyond fabricated numbers and really talk to your front line employees.

    I worked at SAP (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Quality people committed to delivering success (despite many self-imposed constraints)
    - Market leadership and brand recognition
    - Strong partner ecosystem (waiting for a wave of ERP upgrades with S/4HANA)

    Cons

    - Customer aggravation with too many product focused go-to-market resources
    - Management focus on quarterly results vs. long term customer success / satisfaction
    - Inability to innovate organically (also responsible for inflated valuation of acquisitions)
    - Contemporary HR processes that prevent the most qualified leaders from rising to the top

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the reality of what is takes to be successful in the field. Separate strategic customer opportunities from quarterly tactics to push more products into accounts. Reduce reliance on audits to force existing customers to buy more based on contract non-compliance.

    I worked at SAP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Has some fantastic cloud properties/products like Concur, SuccessFactors and Hybris. Senior management is top notch. Lot's of opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    Lacking in basic sales resources. Surprisingly little is documented and there's no one to help you navigate SAP. Something as simple as processing an order can take weeks and weeks. Very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in someone to help salespeople sell and not get stuck doing basic admin work.
