Good pay and benefits. Has lots of long term employees. Provides lots of learning opportunities (depending on your organizational unit). Encourages employee harmony. Hard work is usually noticed.
Encourages people to network which is nice but this also can mean that you won't be heard unless you are part of the old boy clique in that group. Work life balance can either be great or awful depending on which group you are in. Not innovative enough.

It was a very innovative culture with some of the brightest people I have ever met. There was an excellent work life balance and excellent for getting to know people through the sports and social society.
As I was there as an intern I felt that an Intern society or socials for the interns to get to know each other outside of the workplace would have been an excellent idea. The work was challenging but rewarding.2

Very good work-life balance with flexible hours and Working From Home (WFH) and even Work from Anywhere (WFA) initiatives.
SAP Leadership almost never says what NOT to do, which is critical for prioritization. Employees often feel overwhelmed whith too many DOs being added every quarter.

Lot of employee friendly benefits, lot of opportunities and roles, excellent work life balance.
You tend to get used to the great work life balance and the perks that you just can't leave!

Good benefits, good working environment. Moving toward a performance driven company.
Lack of 'Work Life Balance' due to conf calls and discussion with other regions.

Network and Support; Challenges; Benefits; Work life balance depends on specific projects and periods throughout the year. SAP has also an incredible work environment, full of interesting challenges and projects across several industries and specific SAP products. People have the ability to shift within SAP Products from time to time. SAP has been always, by nature, a company that incentivized it's employees in continuous learning but there was often the question of time. I believe is now progressing to a more openness culture of providing such time as technology is shifting and people need continuous learning to be up to date with SAP tools and management is recognizing such effort demands.
Company is still shifting from OnPrem world to Cloud and therefore some areas are still walking this road, for example Product Management knowledge sharing and release management is difficult to access. Specific information not yet available but demanded by customers can take some time to be available. Seems that still there is few people managing each area and who can provide important insights to customers. This is one of the biggest handicaps at the moment in my opinion.

Very supportive managers and good support for career development and learning.
Pay is ok but for the work life balance we get. it is good.
- 5.0Mar 14, 2021Senior Director, CommunicationsCurrent EmployeeVancouver, BC
- Flexible hours - Focus on diversity and inclusion within working culture - Competitive salary and bonus - Global company with great mobility options - Really cares about its employees - Importance of social justice issues, sustainability and the environment
- Workforce is divided into many board areas and employees can often be stuck in silos - Work life balance can be tough given it's a global company and many global roles are virtual - Need to innovate but development culture is not set up for that

- It has all the corporate benefit, but the team is super active - They are hiring a lot of fresh grads! This is great opportunity so YOUNG PEOPLE, JOIN THE COMPANY NOW! Great career opportunity for you I just joined a team and all my teammates are fresh grads. At the same time I got opportunity to work with VP together, and the VP guy is super nice and knowledgable. I feel very happy about this whole team culture (while I can work together with teammates on similar age, I still get mentored and discussing with Senior/VP level people easily. AWESOOOOOME WORK LIFE BALANCE! wfh Fridays/meetings at Palo Alto office(where they got AWESOME cafe and other great stuff! On my day 1 I met a guy who also choose to leave Amazon's Seattle office to come here. He said this company is much better on every level, benefits/work life balance/etc.
- I feel like it's a bit political sometimes... just a bit, but it's ok. Even Google is political (don't be surprised!) It happened everywhere and you need to learn how to deal with it.
