    SAP is very in-touch with the reality of today's workforce. Many employees have a variety of needs - SAP helps connect employees to those needs. Based on my assignment, I have the privilege to work from home - and can move anywhere in the world that I choose. I also have benefits that meet my family's needs. My manager is great - and we always connect at least 2-3 times per week to check-in.


    We're a large organization. With this, it can be challenging to know what each part of the organization does on a daily basis. This can really be more of a "pro" than a "con." But those who need to see the whole organization will find this challenging.

    Advice to Management

    We have top talent in all parts of the organization. To keep top talent happy (and staying at SAP), keep on encouraging professional growth and development at all levels.

    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at SAP (Palo Alto, CA).


    Interviewed with a group. No real technical questions were asked, which I later come to realize is a huge red flag. I showed my independent web projects and talked about my background. The people seem dismissive. They seemed to have already decided to hire me as an intern without checking to see if I'd be a good fit.
