Great Company

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
SAP has a great work culture with lots of opportunity. Though with a 100k+ employee company you can feel like a number at times. Managers are great but should take more ownership on developing talent. Many people have left due lack of upward mobility.


Pay, benefits, flexible work schedule

Strong company with good work-life balance

SAP allows employees to maintain a work-life balance while being able to grow and advance. Management supports employees and their desire to grow their career and listens to feedback about what areas they would like to focus on.


compensation not as high as competitors

What people like
  • Feeling of personal appreciation
  • Ability to learn new things
  • Time and location flexibility


SAP goes out of its way to support employees with benefits, training and other perks. The compensation is fair, but varies by location. Overall a good place for a career in IT.


Benefits, perks, training, Some very interesting topics, international company, Get to work with people from all over the globe on a daily basis.


Very bureaucratic, Large organization, hard to navigate different teams to find the information you need to do job, Can be hierarchical

SAP YPP - What a great opportunity!

Great program, divided into several parts, including soft skills and two official SAP certifications, the opportunity is not paid but the benefits and training it offers could easily replace the salary.

Great people

Good:- The people really are great, supportive, friendly- Great benefits and pay- Great growth opportunitiesThe less good:- Falling a bit behind other companies- They don't make it easy to sell to customers (training is lacking, the tools we use internally (not the ones we sell) are garbage- "Too many cooks in the kitchen" moments

German Company bent on hiring their own people in Germany

Company bent on hiring people from Germany and invented reasons to terminate their counterpart USA employees. Workday was mostly travel. I traveled 100,000 airplane miles each year especially after 911. I wrote two very successful lucrative payroll manuals and never got any recognition for it. Hardest part of the job was the travel: home on Friday evening, travel on Sunday.

Very political company and they manage from top down, period

SAP is a very political company and many decisions are based on politics, period. Do not go to HR for any concerns you have about management because they sincerely only represent management and not you the employee. It's a toxic work atmosphere. SAP goes through reorganizations every 10 months and it's chaotic as well.

Highly structured work environment,

Workday was quite flexible. Most team members were in by 9AM. Some regular members worked remotely. Remote work was discouraged for me as a contractor.


15 minutes commute from my house, flexible work hours, ample lunch breaks


Unpaid holiday and vacation

It's a behemoth company and it shows.

If you are okay with things moving at a glacial place, you'll be fine here. Leaders are promoted based on favoritism. There is zero transperancy. This is Concur specific. The integration of acquired LOBs is terrrible.


Good benefits


No accountability for leaders

Horrible management in china

Joined sap with hope, left because manager forced us to. Always getting bashed about what I do, manager got so mad during 121 many times. Felt extremely anxious the entire time. overtime with no compensation. I’m sure the branches in developed countries would be quite different tho

Good work culture

Enjoyed my time working here. There’s a special sense of freedom when you work here. Learning opportunities are great and self learning is also possible.

Organization politics is key to success or to get promoted

Qualifications and hard work do not matter. One with white skin gets promoted quickly. They don't recognize or consider internal employees for promotion rather they like to hire people from outside. If you want to work for rest of your life with no hikes or possibly 1% hike then join this company.

Internship was ok...

The brand name of SAP is pretty good, but the culture is rather dull. I would say it's a very work-oriented company, and my manager didn't entirely interact with me throughout the process. Additionally, during my virtual daily standups, the colleagues did not even turn on their camera, making it feel like a silo culture.

IT Contractor at SAP

While it constantly amazes me the level of disorganization that exists across almost all facets of SAP (especially IT practices), it is still a great place to be and the internal employees here are all clearly pleased to be here.

Overworked. Expect to work 60 hours + per week.

Good company, but way too much work on everyone's plate. I would guess the average employee works 60+ hours per week. And expect to be emailed 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.


Remote, flexible work environment, good benefits.


Long hours, very political organization-- meaning you get promoted if you're "in" with someone, not based on your work.

Great people and culture belonging in office and remote. From a contractor perspective.

I interacted with a lot of intelligent and friendly people in every department. I never saw any politics being played with to put someone down. Office has a lavish cafeteria and gym. Great management that looks out for their team.


Great office, hybrid, or remote work/life balance. Everyone wants to succeed together.


Seems to be mainly hiring from within at the moment for certain positions.
