Productive, fast-paced environment and supportive team

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
While I cannot speak on behalf of all staff, my time as an intern at SAP was rewarding and I felt well-supported. Other interns and staff were eager to connect and overall friendly. Many opportunities to transfer into a full-time position was offered, and when there wasn't people were glad to help vouch for you so long as you displayed good work ethic. My ideas were often considered and I had the opportunity to bring my projects to life as well.

Great place to work

A company as large as SAP means that you are constantly meeting new people, learning new things, and probably travelling. The biggest frustration is that they are a technology company and yet they have terrible internal systems. The sales tool we use to create order forms is slow as molasses and full of bugs.

Good, not great

I've been at SAP for 5 years and have truly enjoyed my time here. The work is challenging and fast-paced. I've grown and developed my skillset while tackling truly unique problems. I worked with an excellent team whom I've become friends with outside of work. The company culture is great with a fantastic flex work policy, leading you to feel like, in a lot ways, SAP cares. But for all the good things at SAP, it is by far not a perfect company. Career progression is slow, if happens at all - in my 5 years, I've only been promoted once and many quit to pursue actual advances in their career elsewhere. This results in a terrible retention of talent. In that sense, SAP is a great place to gain experience, but not to build a career. Management lacks vision, purpose, and experience; with my direct manager being passive, ineffective, and detached. She doesn't understand what I do, is slow to recognize good work, and has no idea how to help me or my team advance. I don't understand how she remains in her position and I often feel 'stuck' working under her. The pay is good but not great, and your salary increases are bad. I've heard leadership, both direct and from the board, say the reward of SAP comes from its company culture and the variety of work available. But that just means you end up making choices and stressing out about things that are way above your pay grade. I don't think I'll last much longer here, so I'll be exploring options outside of the company soon. But in general, I would recommend SAP as a great place to gain experience and develop new skills, but not a -

Average pay, slow progression, bad management

A great intern experience!

The intern community was very close-knit and friendly. There were many events and opportunities to meet other interns and coworkers from different departments.

High-tech, fast-paced company in the heart of Yaletown - great local leaders!

The Vancouver office has an exceptional culture of quality leadership and collaborative people, with a huge focus on interns, young talent, and working with employees to help them align their careers to their passions. Every part of the company is represented in the Vancouver site, which compliments learning about and networking with any development direction that might be of interest.

Pros

Fantastic facilities & location, gym, lunch program, volunteer opportunities, mentoring, Bwn, Toastmasters, top talent rewards, access to leadership team

Cons

Fast-paced, corporate HQ in Germany, long hours often encouraged, large corp politics

Work hard play hard

Great workplace and people are usually supportive, but headcount matters and Interns are very unlikely to advance to a full time position after their internship.

A great place to be an intern

I worked as an intern at SAP Vancouver for 8 months. It was a fantastic experience! You learn a lot in your jon. Plus, there are plenty of programs/workshops for interns to take part in. And it looks great on your resume!

Fun Place to work

It is a busy and fast-past work environment, but it's a fun place to be where there are parties with beer and samosa being served! Friendly and diverse work environment.

Not a bad company

Pay is good, benefits are good. If you're looking for stability this is a good option. SAP has been around for a while and it's not going anywhere. But ultimately your experience at SAP will depend on your team, managers, and department.

Pros

free lunches

Great internship program

SAP is very supportive of interns. They understand how to teach co-op students the skills we need to make valuable contributions to the agile team. I had no experience going in and learned so much.
