Pros

Good benefits, bonus comes on time and a steady paycheck for a Government job.

Cons

Rampant nepotism. If you are not part of the cool kids club (in other words white), you will not be selected to grow in your career. There is a lack of minorities in leadership as that is not the culture here as compared to any other tech company. SAP touts itself as an inclusive employer focused on diversity yet for SAP; diversity means gender equality (but you have to be white) – it’s like SAP jut woke up to gender equality and it was the latest buzzword out there. The other problem here is SAP is great at marketing itself - it is after all a sales and marketing machine and not a software company - so reality is very different from the illusion SAP markets itself as in terms of product or people diversity. If it was not for CoVID-19 a lot of people would have left sooner. Lastly from a performance management perspective, it does not matter if you kill yourself to stand out for you probably will make 10% more than the lowest performer and forget about talking about career goals (re: see above for explanation).

Advice to Management

If you are serious about diversity then stop talking about it, stop marketing it and act on it. We can't breathe because you do succession planning and leave us out. We can't breathe because you promote your favorites but keep us at the level below to do all the work and pay us less.

Pros

The company in general has an increadible culture of respect, the benefits are great and in most teams you have flexibility.

Cons

In some teams the managers do not follow the culture that SAP created. They do what they want, completely ignoring what the company in general preaches, not giving space to be yourself and criticizing people harshly in front of all the team saying it's a feedback. All of this atitude create a toxic culture, that is the complete opposite of what it should be.

Advice to Management

Train the managers better, teach them how to talk to people and motivate a group.
