Great place to learn different technologies while learning on the job.
Cloud Operations Linux System Administrator (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – August 16, 2018
A typical work day at SAP as a Linux Cloud System Admin is pretty fast-paced. You have the immediate task that you'll work on throughout the day while also juggling customer tickets. You have to be very flexible with the ability to multitask. Management wise, they give you the freedom to use your skillset confidently and have an open door policy for communication. The hardest part of the job would be learning the environment which is very big and complex, but once you get a good grasp of the dev, qa, and production environment its pretty much up to you how you'll navigate and work it. The most enjoyable part of the job, in my opinion, is the ability to get your hands on many different technologies and build upon your skills.
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – October 31, 2018
The quality of an engineering experience at SAP is entirely dependent on board-level politics, and SAP's executive board is chaotic at best. When things are going right, a good team has more opportunities to do challenging, interesting, and novel work than at any other large company I've worked at. The downside is, a board-level coup could happen at any time, and all of your hard work might be abruptly thrown away.
Work-life balance is unusually good, and while the perks aren't quite at the Google level, they're pretty good. There are internal labs where you can get involved in cutting edge research, and they're generally open to anyone who shows both interest and aptitude. None of this highly-publicized 20% that doesn't really exist; this is straight up fit-it-in-where-you-can blue sky stuff.
Director (Former Employee) – Newtown Square, PA – November 26, 2018
I spent 10 years there. I enjoyed every day and I would love to go back and work for them again.
I was hired before I graduated college. I started at the bottom and worked my way up. I started out running a New Jersey office and then took on additional responsibilities of running a New York office. After 4 years of doing that I then moved to the HDQ and took on more responsibilities. Overall it's a great work experience, great company and I would recommend anyone looking for tech job to look at them first.
Great perks, excellent pay & benefits, mgmt could be better
Executive Assistant / Contractor (Former Employee) – Newtown Square, PA – May 29, 2018
I love, loved, loved working at SAP! The senior Administrative Assistant that was there to help train me was so supportive and patient. My co-workers were a joy, as well. The work-life balance and the salary are also excellent. Plenty of flexibility if overtime is needed.
However, one of the executives I supported was very unyielding and extremely hard to communicate with, which had a decisive impact upon success within the role and chances for advancement within the corporation. That is the ONLY negative thing I can say about this fantastic company!

Beware the female executives trying to compete with the "boys"
SAP has great benefits, modern facility, enviromentally friendly and managers are hands on
Travel and Services Lead Analyst- Accounts Payable (Former Employee) – Newtown Square, PA – September 13, 2018
I was impressed with working at SAP as a Team Lead for Travel and Expense AP. I has supportive management who allowed me to learn and perform management functions. I was responsible for weekly payment runs and reports, accruals, and training new temporary contractors. After almost two years, and learning that the AP and T&E departments were going global, I was saddened to hear that many jobs were being relocated in Argentina. I then applied for several other positions to retain my status at SAP in Newtown Square. Eventually, after training the employees in Argentina on procedures and policies for T&E expense reports, many of us were laid off.
Beautiful building and location, weekly perks(free lunch), abundant training, excellent benefits, good leadership teams
High expectations to be perfect, big on metrics reports
A very structured organization, with a highly politicized culture.
Data Scientist (Current Employee) – Remote – December 13, 2018
I think that SAP has a very strong brand in the ERP marketplace, but they have been slow in change, and thus they no longer hold the dominant market position that they once did. As with any large organization, there are some outstanding people working there, and there are others that are just OK - but I think that this is fairly typical for large organizations. Unfortunately, good talent is often lost because of it. The fact that this is a German company, but that its largest market is the US also creates a very interesting dynamic, particularly when you have to interface with the German people for anything. I have enjoyed working here, but I am now ready to move on to some new challenges.

Account Executive, SAP SuccessFactors (Current Employee) – TX – September 7, 2018
SAP's culture is odd for sales people looking for success. SAP has 2-2.5 times the number of sales people compared to the competition. This creates smaller territories with the same quota expectations.
Comp plans are standard 50/50 salary to commission but payout structure is extremely limited (below industry norm) below 50% obtainment.... basically reps don't see any tangible pay until their over 50% later in the year.
Overdeployed sales force and below average commission structure
User Experience Designer (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – February 10, 2018
SAP being a 60k+ employee company is huge. It means 2 thing: - You will get paid what the corporate say you get paid. And it's not market rate. - You will not get ahead no matter how much impact you make at work. It's about who you know to get ahead.
I think SAP is great for people who wants work-life balance (maybe you have a family to take care of). People stay there for 10+ years, that speak volume to how good the benefits are. However, I found that I can get paid much more if I left, and will get on faster career track than to stay at SAP.
Good benefits, relaxed culture, nice people
Highly political, Lower pay, Virtually no promotion
