If you receive severance pay from SAP NA, can you still find a new job in SAP EMEA or ANZ? is there any time cool down restrictions? I heard there is a 2 years non hire period?
Any update on what is happing with UK&I redundancies? Last year was a mess. What sort of numbers are we looking at ? Should be less especially as we had layoffs last year ! ! All updates welcome .

So many of you seem desperately unhappy here. Nobody's forcing you to stay, so why do you?
Have managers to this point made and entered their decision on Move SAP stock grants for their team? Also, about what percent of the team gets this?
My job is repetitive and monotonous. Most of the time, I'm bored out of my skull. It wasn't always like this, but all the changes, micromanaging, and the refusal to take any ideas into consideration that don't come from those at the top have made it... — read more

News about to drop in 3-2-1
Have the 8k names be selected by now and if so, would the line managers have been informed yet?
Wow…I cannot believe how disorganized they are with this round of voluntary packages. They said in a call yesterday that it would be 2 more weeks before notifications are sent. So poorly executed for a company of this size that preaches empathy and... — read more

The Jeffersons theme song? Really? Is no one embarassed by this lame effort to keep the minions calm about rto?
How can it be that difficult for SAP to actually retain recognized, experienced leaders to run the corporation ? Well, it must be staggeringly difficult when you look at our leadership at both Global and Regional levels. SAP has been and... — read more

Any thoughts or rumors on how the layoffs will impact shared service delivery teams.
If the true plan is to get 2/3rds of the affected workers to get other jobs in the company, why aren't they stopping external hiring?...
Watching the All Hands it seems Christian Klein cares very little about the employees at SAP. He callously announces 8000 layoffs and smirks when someone dares to challenge him with questions. People who are close to retiring who may be effected ask... — read more
