    "Boundless". This is the word I would tell you if you asked me how to describe what working at SAP is like. I started at SAP in February 2016 and was immediately immersed in an environment that offers limitless opportunity, feeling of purpose, and room for growth.

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


    There's a lot of freedom to identify market needs, make things that actually match what people tell you they want.


    There's a fair amount of administrative inertia that happens, tons of rules, and everyone wants to have a say in everything... it sometimes creates a drag on progress when there are too many meetings to talk about things.

    Negative Experience


    I applied and was referred for several roles at SAP. I never got an interview but I got an email asking me to fill out a 30 minute assessment that may be used if I am ever invited for an interview. A bit of a joke and time waster if the company wants you to spend time on this when no interview has been set up. Usually you fill these out if you're invited for an interview. And very personal too, with the Hi [Username] . I've always wanted to be referred to as Username.
