"It’s an IT company so unfortunately misogyny still exists, and it’s hard to be paid what you’re worth or advance to leadership if you’re outspoken about the inequalities. If you have the energy/wish to be political and resilient, you could do well here. "

"There is a ton of talented women at SAP and a ton of support and programs to network, however we are still right below the surface in many top level positions. With each re-org, you will see 1 or 2 women in a sea of men's faces, however a few years ago, there were no women at all. It's progress, it's slow, it's about breaking up the existing groups of male leadership to let more women in. SAP is getting there.. slowly."

"Upper management is very focused on developing and promoting women at all levels. We have difficulty finding African American and Hispanic candidates (both men and women) for roles in technology sales, so please apply for consideration. Also, if you don't know someone who works here, approach an exec on linkedin and ask for their sponsorship."

"SAP is a wonderful organization to work for because it works with Fortune 500 clients whereby we are always ahead technology and best practices. Companies like Nike, Porsche, Mercedes. Apple are a few of our clients and other partners. Aside from the benefits, discounted purchase options and remarkable engagement groups, the talent is amazing and you will work with many competent people. We have yoga and mediation classes, mindfulness workshops, employee led groups (Business Women's Network, Experts program, Leap, and more). We routinely have invited guests providing insights, training, tools, and tips virtually and in person. Leadership women workshops, global coaching, mentoring programs, flexible work conditions. No company is perfect, but it is pretty great to see the investment and focus into its employees. "

"Concur has put a solid effort into increasing gender diversity and inclusion, but some employees lag behind in terms of attitude and willingness to learn about the issue and make changes in their ways (i.e., this is not a systemic issue around the company, it is personal for a few employees I worked with). However, the vast majority of people are fantastic and really do their best to increase gender equality within the company, and you will feel supported by coworkers. "

"They are trying to progress towards an increasingly inclusive culture. However top positions (VP and above) are a bit of a good ol boys club."
"SAP is a great company. SuccessFactors is not a good part of it."
"Do not work there. It is not the best place to work for us. You'll be harassed by colleagues, managers and HR wont do nothing for you"
"12 weeks fully paid maternity leave plus the option to come back part time for 4 weeks after. There are few women in leadership roles outside of your traditional "women leadership roles". The professional services group is woefully underserved in women's leadership. Most departments have a pretty flexible work/life environment and there are a lot of people who work remotely. "

"The company has a strong view on equal pay and allows for a good work-life balance. But it is a mostly male dominated environment and has no initiaves to promote gender equality and awareness as to how better integrate women in these environments. Most lead roles are still ocuppied by men, altough it is a concern of the company to diversify these roles, we still are far away from having several women in managing roles, for example. "

"Excellent maternity AND paternity leave options."
"Women are, in my opinion, treated fairly, but there is definitely still a lack of women in certain areas."
"Good employee networks like the Business Women's Network where you can find mentors and connect with female leaders"
"I generally feel that women are treated fairly at this company as there are many women role models at the senior level plus we have a C level woman."
"There is an initiative for more gender equality but old habits die hard. Maternity leave is generous with the addition of part time return to work benefit for one month at 100% pay. However, there is certainly a stigma with taking this full time benefit. My manager had to go so far as to whisper to tell me that my maternity time off was supported, as to not let her manager hear that I was encouraged to take my legally designated time off."
"I don't feel they utilize or develop their administrative professionals effectively. Many women in middle management roles, especially in marketing. I believe women are treated fairly here, and I think there needs to be more work done to hire and retain talented women at all levels. Maternity leave is generous: 12 weeks paid at 100% and up to 4 weeks "transition" time (full time pay, part time hours). In some states, you apply for short term disability and the company makes up the difference between what is paid by the state and your regular salary."
"SAP is a great company and they are working hard on making it a more equitable and inclusive workplace. There is a Board goal of 25% women in leadership by 2017, which is great. They could do more proactive measures regarding visibility, development and promotion of women as well as equitable pay."
"Sap is a huge company and its easy to get swallowed in this company. I think it's a good company that does give opportunities to women, however I don't think the work is particularly interesting at Sap."
"Maternity leave has become much more generous since I took mine 8 years ago. My managers have always been very flexible when it came to time off/appointments for my child. As with most companies, your satisfaction depends heavily on your manager. I've heard of only a small number of women within the company who did not have the same positive experience with their managers. In the department that I work in, there are a large number of female managers."
"If you want to a career this is not the company. No internal mobility and the management does not support it either just allot of talk."
"While the company states it wants to have more women in leadership, they should add the stipulation that you either need to not have kids or your spouse needs to stay at home. The culture is very much an old boys network. I do not recommend SAP to females for these reasons."
"Manager dependent. Nice company culture. Quarterly driven: you are either selling or developing. You can create a nice work-life balance for yourself - especially if you are virtual. If you are virtual, it seems harder to progress your career. It is hard to understand what it takes to succeed, get promoted, etc."
"There are several woman in lead managerial roles. I believe men generally have an easier transition and more opportunities when it comes to moving into a lead role. Very stressful work environment and deadlines need to be met. Working remotely is an option. You tend to work longer but it provides a more flexible work environment. I don't believe the pay scale is equal and men are making more in regards to salary. I handle the same if not more responsibilities then some others on my team and I know most are making a higher salary with less experience."
"I have worked for 11 years and it definitely depends on where you land in regards to organizations on how the women are treated or shall I say have the opportunity for advancement. It many places it is certainly still is the Old Boys Club."
"It's a very tough company to work for, but it can be rewarding and the benefits are good."
"Women have a long way to go in this company."
"Very white male-dominated, very rigid work style, makes symbolic appointments of women for good optics. Women who have any power don't last long. Highly bureaucratic, layered,slow. Not open to feedback, just pushes superficial messages of diversity, like hiring more people with Autism, while ignoring the real day to day issues with other populations."
"It's an extremely large company - be patient learning you're way around. I would recommend networking with some people who have been with the company for a while."
"Flex time is determined by your manager so varies from team to team. HR is very inaccessible and unsupportive."
"Negotiate every raise and promotion. I've heard managers know that women won't know they can negotiate, and you can..."
