How are the career development opportunities at SAP?

Pros

Strong diversity, very smart coworkers, lots of career opportunity if you have a good manager, strong compensation, good benefits, ability to shape your position, a lot of people following their passions, truly a Global working environment.

Cons

Heavy workload, sometimes feels disconnected because so many people work from home and are so work focused, can be hard to get pay increases, products disjointed.

Advice to Management

Senior leadership is great, but a lot of variance in mid management, can be hard to find out about career opportunities before they're filled. Move faster to integrate Cloud solutions and create synergies between the businesses.

How are promotions handled at SAP?

Pros

* Work/life balance. * If you are hired in with a competitive pay, then they offer competitive pay. * Everyone is nice! * I feel valued and respected as an employee with money/title aside.

Cons

* I don't feel valued and respected as an employee with money/title included. * Micro-promotions appear to be utilized to help limit growth of over-performers due to title inflation of already promoted under-performers. It's one thing to inflate one's importance and value wanting a promotion, it's another to see it rampant across multiple orgs. * You must threaten to leave or leave then return to increase salary to market standards. Even with multiple promotions, cost of living out-paces promotion salary increases. I've been told "it sounds just like when I worked there many years ago." * Lower bar on competency resulting in drowning out the all-stars. Unfortunately that results in all-stars leaving or losing passion/drive.

Advice to Management

Employees learn that most will flatline their career growth the second they accept the offer. This is regardless of performance. It's not something that is disguised. Even with micro-promotions, employees quickly become undervalued in contrast to the market standards. Quitting or threatening to quit with a written offer shouldn't be the means to re-evaluate compensation. Instead that only reduces employee loyalty. Why try if there's no appreciation or value for going above and beyond?

What is the feeling of job security at SAP?

Pros

- Great company culture - Excellent benefits - Very collaborative, nice, diverse colleagues - Great HR department in Germany doing a lot for the employees - SAP really cares about people, no continuous layoffs I experienced in US companies - Work from everywhere possible - Ability to manage work-life balance and to have time for the family

Cons

- Integrate acquisitions way faster and not let them pursue their own agenda - A lot of changes recently incl. many re-orgs what put's pressure on the employees makes it hard to keep their focus on the core priorities
