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.

What kind of career opportunities exist at SAP?

Pros

Collaborative culture, strong customer orientation, great solutions, fast-moving environment, opportunity to grow and a genuine focus on making our customers run better and improving people's lives.

Cons

I've been here 14 years (almost 3x as long as any of my other 5 jobs) so there haven't been many. There are the occasional folks who don't embrace the "win together" culture, but they typically don't last that long.

Advice to Management

Keep it up. I love the fact that we're doubling down on customer success and our focus on driving customer business outcomes.

How are promotions handled at SAP?

Pros

The business problem the Fieldglass product solves for the market and their customers is fantastic. The product is OK but lacks innovation, they simply do what customers ask rather than telling them what they need.

Cons

Cons are mostly towards SAP Fieldglass, but SAP & SAP Fieldglass closed the individual SAP Fieldglass company page a couple months ago. Since other recent acquisitions (SAP Ariba, SAP Concur and SAP SuccessFactors) maintain their Glassdoor pages, one could deduce this was done to avoid negative reviews for SAP Fieldglass since they've been in a culture and talent retention/development tailspin for years (pre and post SAP acquisition date). It could also mean SAP is about to clear house, too. Both SAP and SAP Fieldglass have failed in truly unifying the organizations to "Run Simple," despite their sales and marketing telling their current and prospective customers that they are excelling in doing so in all areas. Fieldglass customers and partners buy into an enormous sales and marketing push but don't receive much real value in the two companies coming together (product and partner alignment, delivery and support model and best practices, finance and billing practices, etc.). These external issues as well as rampant internal issues sit solely on leadership's shoulders. Leadership is complacent, under qualified and ineffective…quite the hat trick. They've managed to keep SAP eyes away but that time is probably up. Promotions are not based on merit, they perpetuate a "good ol' boy" system. Leaders do not promote or create an atmosphere where open dialogue, logic (data driven) and differing perspectives or opinions are valued or even really tolerated. Any dissent is viewed as a negative attitude and is not welcomed, so you can either fake it and pump up the house of cards or leave or be let go. Bad employees are tolerated and good employees get burned out / uninterested as a result. It's a sea of mediocrity. A Professional Services leader even left the company weeks after initiating a department reorganization and letting five managers go. My advice is for SAP to review all areas of Fieldglass and for all candidates thinking about working here to find a spot in other parts of SAP, or another company. Fieldglass has done a great job at convincing their employees and candidates that they don't deserve more, but don't buy it.

Advice to Management

Review all areas of the business unit.

What is the feeling of job security at SAP?

Pros

Facilities and policies on par with Google / Facebook. Very much employee friendly organization Good job security

Cons

You might feel little bored if you are in a team with less work. Company makes you feel very much comfortable, unless you challenge yourself and have enthusiasm to learn, you might become lazy in terms of learning.

Advice to Management

Policies can be extended to help customers with work station setup at home. Legal and other support can be extended to employees like other MNCs . Intel has such policies.

Good job security
