Great compensation, terrible management
What I like
Compensation packages (even severance, early retirement, etc) are excellent.
What I dislike
Changes are announced from the top, then by the time they trickle down to the workers, another new direction has been set. Always playing catch-up.
There are very few good people managers at SAP.
Suggestions for improvement
Hire more real employees with industry experience. Use fewer contractors, as they have no skin in the game.
Get the realization that a manager is not the same as a leader
Long, thankless days
Inclusive / Diverse
IT employees are primarily Indian
SAP speaks of gender equality. As a black woman, I can tell you categorically I am in a super-minority
Attitude towards older colleagues
Too many millennials with no respect for experience.
I work in LEED-certified building where a lot of people are often sick - mold grows in the corners of the windows and probably inside the cooling vents.
There is no job security at SAP anymore. People with 20 years of experience are tossed-out every three or so years to make way for younger, cheaper (and clueless) people.
