3 layoffs in SAP C4C team today!
More to come.
Shocking that so many employees and managers at SAP are systematically getting let go!
SAP is no longer the company it used to be.
I know several of my colleagues have been let go in the last month in CX org.
Hearing of big org changes on March 1st, and probably more layoffs!
Ready your resumes, never know when they’ll strike at you!
SAP 2020 layoffs are going on already.
Bob Stutz has come to SAP to clean house.
Already payed off several employees and managers.
Alex Atzberger creates a high mess with his CX org, now Bob Stutz is creating another mess with another reorg!
SAP CX will never succeed. SAP can never beat Salesforce!
In my market unit, Two consultants from callidus moved to dbs as part of merger last year and one consultant is asked leave with 2 months package.
SAP should get rid of all these expensive managers who “manage” professionals but are altogether out of date in their solutions and tech knowledge. They are from a previous era of tech growth and getting rid of that layer would keep the company trim and going on for much longer
What’s surprising is that up till now, there is no big overhaul of the country MDs and strategic sales heads. All these people have been cruising along with their creative allocation of sales accounts and others have been taking the hit while they go on their annual Hawaii trip. For real change to happen, all these expensive heads should be changed. It’s not just at Bill level
Definitely job cutting by Q1, managers know what’s going to happen already. Never been a better time to touch up your resume.
Haven’t been to this site for a while. While I wish it is not true, I did hear a long timer senior manager talk about a list being prepared at year end. All the best folks!
Layoffs will not be announced until early March 2020. SAP will have a good idea on Q1 results which will determine how much more fat needs to be cut to please Elliot. This will cover SAP on the bonuses that will be announced and promised to all. Anyone being laid off will still get their bonus and severance pay.
Delivery will continue to feel the pain as they move to a cloud delivery model. Bill NcDee started it and SAP now has to fulfill it . Elliott Management us not a patient group. They want return on investment quickly
Don't know why my earlier post disappeared, but, just heard from a senior manager in SAP Singapore that they are already preparing the list. Delivery will be hit hard, early 2020.
Hang in there, guys! Remember, you heard it here first!
What, exactly, is driving that "gut feeling" of yours. If nothing but just pessimism, then its pretty irresponsible to post it at all. People come here to get a sense of "which way the wind is blowing." Not some ill-informed conjecture by someone just peddling fear.
I wonder if there is still headcount to hire. Someone I know had phone interview two weeks ago but the job he applies is no longer available in SAP Career page. It appears the headcount has been frozen again for Q4, which is always the clear sign of cost saving. Time to deposit fat check of severance package. There heaps of opportunities outside SAP.
it's about time to bookmark this thread...
honestly i hope there will be no more cuts, but still, something tells me that 2020 will be even worse.
totally my gut feeling, have no insider info here.
I don‘t see another structured and high-cost retirement program like 2015/17/19 being repeated anytime soon. Rather widespread under-the-surface job-elimination.
What else would ‚double-work-elimination‘ and ’data-center-reduction’ translate to as promised to the investors during the Capital Markets Day.
They are probably shortlisting the people now. Could be as early as Jan, like in 2018, but not as large-scale as 2015, 2017 or 2019.
