    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will work with brilliant minds. In the first 18 months you will receive a lot of training.

    CoE and Message Solving promote on the basis of merit, and nothing else. Generally supportive culture amongst employees.

    Middle Management are hardworking, and put in long hours.

    Located on SW edge of Dublin. Rent is reasonable, in the area, but availaibility is not existent. It is healthier and cheaper than much of the rest of Dublin.

    Excellent opportunities for growth and development. You will learn a lot in five years. But it can be very hard work.

    Your background does not count, only your intellect and workrate - in the CoE, and Message solving. In the other departments, I do not know.

    Cons

    Pay. SAP IRL is no longer in the top tier of "Great places to work" because of pay, and pressure in the two largest units. This is usually a predictor of a staff losses in the following year.

    Promoting staff to promotion levels, and then not paying them the minimum salary levels for that promotion level.

    In 2018, the average pay rise in the CoE was 2.9%. The increase in pressure in the 12 months previous was much greater than this number.

    In the CoE, training is classified as Non-Productive. This is a first for a German company.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs to hurry up with his ambition to get into the US Senate.

    The manager responsible for the Global CoE needs to do a complete policy reversal in a number of areas. She is driving people out of SAP. She has produced the numbers in Consulting in Germany, in such a manner as to drive people to the competitors, and drive down quality at the same time. She is now proceeding to do the same in the Global CoE.

    There was a problem with former managers in SAP IRL getting taken out of management where they failed.....and then moved to other units....where they became managers once again. This is also a precursor to political problems.

    Increase the pay, or else people will leave in droves in 2019. In particular for employees in the 5-8 year bracket, who are now becomming extremely productive.

    Stop driving people to breaking point. It is causing motivation, and qualtiy problems.

    -Training opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Seems to be a disconnect between the buildings. It feels like some of the recent changes are meant with good intentions, but missing the mark.

    Not quite building bridges.

    Pros

    SAP is a flexible, fun and highly innovative company. For anyone who has an interest in tech it really is the place to be. SAP's culture allows for endless creativity, involvement in the success of the company, and a feeling of being continuously at the ready for "whats next" at SAP.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large, sometimes it is hard to understand the best move to make within the company to better your career, but HR are a great help when it comes to this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!
