If you follow the daily talent exodus since the 2020 bonus was paid out - e.g., farewell messages on LinkedIn, you will recognize a layoff is not necessary to thin the ranks of headcount but sadly very valuable double-digit years of experience and talent.
March came and went. Yawn.
SAP Downfall will be the middle managers completely being from India, There is no culture for growth, only politics and sending ppt to upper management with false data. North America this culture is bad. But i guess Germany does not care. Ariba is crazy that way. Hopefully new changes help.
Performance is just an excuse to lay off people. Saw many layoffs just get rid off non their people by color, age etc. Sometimes it is so obvious that people want to sue the managers. Some mangers cluster together to protect each other even with very bad reputation. This is especially true for one nation people in US. SAP is in downhill for sure.
When I was working there, I was very surprised that performance reviews are not done by many teams even though they are mandatory according to HR. Not sure how the managers are able to get away with it because everyone has to go through the process. BTW, they should stop promoting individuals to silly director roles such as "Director of Virtual Events" so they can justify the salary increase. Use the money to save some of the roles that they want to cut instead ... The system is totally corrupted.
Manager and Business partner will know by now. Also COVid brings changes to business model. so i dont think a performance review actually is needed
