Is there any limit on the fleet card for buying windshield washer fluid or better some high performance motor oil? It might be worth buying a higher amount before being fired. What's your opinion?
Topics regarding layoffs at SAP
I'm tired of losing sleep every night because I'm worried about layoffs and whether my job will still be there tomorrow or the day after. This needs to end, now.
I heard that people in the EU get a severance package with 4 weeks for every year. If you had a company car you get it for the half price. Is that true?
I am hearing that 80 employees at the Singapore SSC impacted. Their roles/groups are being moved to the EXISTING Manila SSC. Unsure if 1) the 80 is accurate and 2) that covers every group working out of the Singapore SSC. Shocked that they are doing... read more
Why cut development anywhere at SAP? SAP should be doubling down on development such that sales people are no longer needed, that is that the software solutions are compelling enough to sell themselves. Alas, the SAP CEO is a glad handing sales guy... read more
It looks like those who did not accept VERP will get it anyway (4 weeks as opposed to 2 for younger people laid off). I have signed the waiver but I have until 3/18 to retract it. I guess if I did, it wouldn’t affect my payout and I would still be... read more
I am so surprised that so many people have been layed off from the HANA team. From execs all the way down to developers and PM's. How can this be? I thought HANA was core to SAP's future?... read more
Looks like layoffs are still ongoing. Why? Why not do all the layoffs at once? Why torture us like this? This is just cruel from SAP - which honestly surprises me since I like this place, I enjoy working here and I didn't think leadership possible of... read more
I'm honestly curious to find out who decides which people are laid off. It's not somebody who knows these employees, what they do, or how good they are at it - that much is obvious. I'm assuming this is strictly about numbers - so it's some number... read more
There was a significant wave of new hirings at my location last week. What I find to be worrying in this story is the fact that the new hires were given jobs with similar or the same description as some of us in the group have. I found that as an... read more
ANZ has had quite a caning as well - SF team, Dev Ops, Customer Serivce, HCP, Hana. Not sure of the full extent.
A colleague used to be the same team as mine was let go in 2017 lay-off, he made an internal transfer to SuccsessFactors support by downgrading from T3 to T2. He was shown the door again in this round with the entire team.
Is there any way we can anticipate our layoff? Does anything happen before? Different behaviour of your manager, not getting new projects or anything similar? Is a layoff even possible to anticipate?
Fairness is not included in criteria for layoffs - many teams with very qualified knowledgeable experienced individuals were included in these layoffs. Agree layoffs especially in countries with lesser laws protecting the employees are used to reduce... read more
I'd like to see if someone can chime in on good LinkedIn promotion strategies. I was laid off last week and I'd like to find a decent job - I hope LinkedIn can help but not even sure where to start. Are there any tips ex-SAP folks can share. I know... read more
SAP will s--- you in with all the promises of a company that truly cares, offering annual bonuses and merit increases. But once you reach a certain level, you’ll be expendable and left in the dirt. It’s all about the bottom line. If you think you... read more
My son is a recent college grad, he has been with SAP for under six months and he was shown the door. I'm still trying to figure out what was the point of even hiring him in the first place. Not to mention, he had two other offers he turned down to... read more
Already one week i had the call to prevent me i'm fired... However, i tried to reach my local HR to know more about delay and details.. Not possible, they were on vacation last week...., i also opened a ticket in HR System last week, just transferred... read more
I think we can all see by now that the most affected by these layoffs are older employees with most knowledge and experience. Basically, people who made SAP what it is. I have to wonder, do those on top really think they can get rid of so many of... read more
SAP has spent a lot of cash on acquisitions and Qualtrics was 8 billion. Then layoffs came to save 1 billion? This is all about looking good to Wall Street. SAP knows the original core products are dinosaurs and the only way to stay relevant in the... read more
What are the best alternatives out there for finding a new job? I've been checking other companies on this site and it seems to me that every company in our field is currently in the same position - plenty of layoffs and unhappy employees. Is there a... read more
SF is done. S/4 sidecar for free - SF Americas has been dead for 8 months. Greg is out end of Q2. Neo/SCP moving to Azure by end of year. Run to workday.
Things have been sour for a while now. Failed acquisitions, misguided moves in cloud, mobile, etc. If you think this round of cuts is a big deal, open your eyes and reflect - lay off Kool-Aid for a moment and think about what happened in 2015 (big... read more
i had a job offer from SAP and never joined because I got second thoughts.The problem is that SAP cuts off their subject matter expertise.You can bet after this round of layoffs they will most certain create more VP's. Like zombies if you kill one... read more
Does anyone have any idea, information, news on how this layoff will impact the mobile (iOS, Android; apps, SDKs) teams worldwide? Mobile has not been the greatest success of SAP, so I guess there is a chance of being let go.
Forgive me posting on this board, as I’m an outsider, but my husband works at SAP, more precisely at the Atlanta office. My question is what is the standard severance package in that region?
Toronto and Waterloo SAP Labs are cutting over 69 folks. The Montreal Labs is hit too - 15 layoffs over there. BC cuts are still TBD - I would say 20 to 30 there...

Any pattern that we can follow and maybe predict which locations could be impacted by layoffs this week? Of course I ask this, keeping in mind that that’s very hard to predict, given that this weave is obviously worldwide.
I know a lot of people are panicking due to layoffs, but you really shouldn't. Finding a job with SAP on your resume is not going to be hard - at least for now this company is well respected and having worked here is considered a plus. I know this is... read more
Do we have any ideas on what's going to be hit this week? From what I understand, we know for sure layoffs are not done yet - but that's about the only thing we know. If anybody has any more info - like is the US going to be affected once again and... read more
"Getting let go from SAP for sub par performance is rare. You can get by forever just doing the bare minimum and in a lot of cases even less than that." That is correct. The sub par performance can also be a result of the manager's own doing. I work... read more
Layoffs at SAP are extremely seldom. I have worked for the company for a long time and love my job there. The company announced this 'restructuring' at the beginning of the year and I think it is long overdue. We have acquired many smaller companies... read more
Do we get overworked to the border of our possibilities, do they hire cheaper youngsters, will they hire contractors? It’s hard to figure out given that the layoffs are happening worldwide and that various departments were hit.
Does anyone have any experiences regarding what symptoms are present from which one can foresee that that he/she is in line to be cut, of course if such a thing is possible to predict at all?
Thoughts? Early Talent hiring initiative is company policy, illegal in US? Hires under 30 is a goal for managers, odds of winning...David vs. Goliath...but never know with a Jury...
There are a few major differences which come into play between some EU countries (e.g. Germany, France) and the US. These amount to a fairly good justification why US layoffs are always going to come first. The reasons include: German employees have... read more
