    I worked at SAP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits like the lunch card is great. People are very friendly. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Tech is old and being a business first company, the engineering culture could be improved and there is a lot of manual testing work and getting higher up approvals.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced engineers and give them more ownership over major decisions. Rely on data instead of your own intuition.

    Cons

    As with any large company, there is A LOT of information to learn and stay up to date with while continuing everyday job duties/deadlines. The deadlines don't shift much as targets/goals are still needed to be made, so it could affect work life balance for a time if that's what's most important to you.

    I worked at SAP full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Salary is good comparing to other large corporates

    Cons

    The management seems getting lost in finding the right direction with the new technology, so the company strategy continues getting changed from one direction to another. The managers pay more attention to revenue instead of the leading market strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Find the right strategy and stick to it. Do not reorganize the company too frequently.

    I have been working at SAP full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you are looking for a company to start your career in Development, this is a great place. Do as you are told and execute by Development leadership, and things will be fine.

    Cons

    If you are looking share opinions or constructive feedback into upper management, then this must be done with caution. You may face being ostracized. It is best to keep opinions to yourself, especially if the upper management is located in Waldorf Germany. The Development leadership is very toxic at the moment, and this creates lower morale within lower ranks of Development if opinions can't be shared openly and freely.

    Advice to Management

    A product can not be competitive if opinions (even if not positive) are not heard. Take the feedback with professionalism, and take action to improve the situation.
