Senior Consultant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 14 August 2017
Consulting with SAP is very demanding. The travel requirements are immense and can really drag a person down. By being always assigned to projects, you may find you are the forgotten revenue source. That is, you will never interact with your bosses, or the firm's executives. You will bill lots of money for them, somewhere, and you will only ever hear from them when you make a mistake. Thus, recognition for all your sacrifice is very poor. The salary is good, and you will learn a great deal, but you will likely feel very isolated as a consultant.
learn a lot
Work, work, work, sleep, do laundry, head back to work.

Working for SAP was a great experience with great people. Learning the SAP lingo took sometime but was all in good fun. Being introduced to new software applications was challenging at first but very rewarding.
Great Benefits, Wednesday's each department took a turn hosting breakfast for the company employees.
Great place to work in. Nice environment & great team!

Working as a contractor. Typical day at work is always busy but under control. Always learning new thing & process. Management team are understanding & supporting. Great co-workers, always helping each other. Hardest part is having to leave this great company. Balance work life. Gym in the office, food vending machine, most important great team that is always there to help each other.

SAP is a great company to work for, but it has its share of problems. There is a constant stream of company sponsored training courses available to ALL employees, even if the courses are specifically focused to one department. Compensation is top notch and a healthy life-work balance is always encouraged.
Unfortunately the company is very large and suffers from a lot of bureaucracy and red tape. It likes to think it is as agile as any software start up, but it is very set it in its ways and ultra conservative. At the end of the day ANY position in the company is at the mercy of a DELETE key on some executives Excel spreadsheet. There is no loyalty among employees because they all sense this. The employees are just there for a pay check as long as they can. It's unfortunate because there is a lot of talent that SAP has acquired by gobbling up smaller software companies. Only to be squandered by letting the need to have a good quarter dictate what departments / workers are let go without a second thought.

I worked part time as an admin worker and loved the environment! Everyone was really nice and helped me get started quickly. It was clean, kept organized, and professional. I would go back in a heartbeat!
