Not naive to think that layoffs will ever really stop, but there is a physical line under which they can’t lay off otherwise the company wouldn’t be able to operate. How close are we to that line, and is their goal realy to operate with the bare... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at SAP
We have been loyal to this company, working on projects and skills that are only of value to this company; almost none of us were looking outside or constantly interviewing or fighting amongst ourselves for the s-xiest of trendiest projects. And now

Just wanted to formally announce his new name here.
An article that actually calls out SAP for getting rid of some of its top talent - color me shocked! SAP signals cloud intent as it ousts top in-house programmers... read more
Good management wouldn't let us guess for weeks about what's going on - they'd be honest and communicate what their plans are - for better or worse - instead of leaving us in the dark. It's sad that we have to guess and search for clues outside of... 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
Some Peoples are converted from contract to permanent based on performance. in my LOB peoples are removed based on who converted in the last 1.5 years. Who requested to convert. if the peoples are converted at least they should stay with parent... read more
Over 10 years in SAP Asia as an employee here. Had started with dedication and loyalty to a quality company, with that constant tension between Engineering and Sales, but things were still ok, customers were the focus. BUT it changed. Last few years... read more

I have a simple question - why does this entire industry believe that laying off employees with most knowledge and experience will solve problems that were not created by them, but by the inadequate and self serving upper management? I'm pretty sure... read more
We are a big company and the fact that we have an international workforce with offices in various parts of the world smaller portions of layoffs are next to impossible to determine. So, after the official wave I think that they will continue with... read more
If this is true, SAP developers are going the way of the dinosaur. https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6513163664122474496
Is there anybody? From what I've heard and read, if I'm laid off i'm royally screwed. Finding a job will either be impossible due to my age or the pay will be (at best) half of what I'm making now. Is there anybody out there who will actually be... read more
SAP APJ and GC - please expect the special letter and meeting with your manager’s manager and HR after Chinese New Year. This will be in time to recognize all the restructuring costs in Q1. The show must go on
Anyone who thinks that this is a sole wave and who survived is safe now, is being naive. So my question is when can we expect a second wave? Maybe they will try to do it in smaller portions and in a longer period of time, avoiding the sensation of an... read more
You are worth more than 2 weeks pay. This is a joke! Most companies give 6 months minimum. I have applied to 3 jobs so far and each asked: Have you signed any Non-disclosure agreements? Have you signed any Non-compete agreements? Don’t throw away... read more

Why fresher does not get job in sap abap ...?
I believe the numbers go a lot higher than what the company is reporting to the media. Given the fact that these layoffs were done in multiple countries and in multiple locations I imagine it was rather easy to hide the real number of heads that was... read more
Our team was stretched thin as it is - and we are down three people. How exactly are we supposed to finish anything on time from now on when we could barely do it before? Whoever made the decision on who to lay off had no idea what they were doing -... read more
The entire thing is a farce. It's a cost cutting measure, no matter how they try to spin it. If they truly were strategic instead of being top down numbers, they wouldn't have laid off a mere 6 people spread across a variety of teams in CoE North... read more
Total layoff stand @550 in US? Or more than that?
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.
Wondering if there could be lawsuits against SAP for discriminating offering VERP based on different ages. In the U.S, VERP is offered to those 59 and above, in Canada it's 58 and above and in Germany it's 55 and above. Would these lawsuits hold... read more
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 would appreciate if SAP people posted if layoffs are continuing and if they are at what locations? Any opinions whether cuts will continue throughout this week and are they gonna continue being worldwide?
What were you told is your last day?
Management just need count, performance doesn't matter. Management talks : Sh-- !! Not able to achieve the count, lets layoff entire team with their bosses.
HR has handled this so poorly. Case in point: an emploee on leave to bury a parent laid off while sitting at the funeral home (yes, said employee asked to reschedule the meeting and told HR why), an employee promoted 3 weeks before has their job... read more
The way how SAP HR is managing the layoff process here in the US is just bad - it's substandard and it's borderline unprofessional. The communication is lacking, the journey is fuzzy and the rumors swirling in the office are mind boggling. I am... read more
Now that US VERP have declared, is anyone hearing about a second round to make the target number? Does anyone have a POV on Bill’s last Friday call with VP+?
Maybe I'm oversimplifying the whole situation, but it’s a fact that almost all of the laid off employees were not management of any kind, but “regular” employees. How the hell can trimming the number of those who bring actual value to the company and... 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
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
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
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
