Varied day-to-day life with a relaxed culture which gave freedom for innovation and autonomy. Gained a great insight into different elements of the sales process and helped ensure the verbal call was reached each quarter through tracking and analysing deals.
My time at SAP was horrifying. Nepotism is rife in this branch, I saw and experienced multiple instances of open bullying, racism and prejudice against nearly every kind of person that wasn't the average white male. Many times, I didn't know how to react when seeing how people within this company acted. Some comments and situation stick out and define clearly what type of people are employed at this branch: - "I hope Jeremy Corbyn would just die" - "As stated on your passport, you are either !male or female, there's no in between" - people with accents mocked and laughed at because they didn't sound English enough. - making fun out of someone's name, because it sounded foreign to them - "I'm just gonna call you Oi or Mate, cos I cant say your name" - ethnic minority harrassed and bullied to the point they cried, happened on multiple occasions with different individuals - "I trust you won't nick anything" after being left in a meeting room alone. The management style was extremely odd as well, when asking for assistance as a new staff member, I was always told that they were too busy to help, or meeting requests were ignored, yet I could see them helping others. Completely made me feel socially isolated. These are only some instances, there are many more I can list. I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemies.
Free gym and space to walk, to take mind off the depression, racism and bullying
Racism, sexism, nepotism, favouritism, bullying, no help or guidance, childish behaviour, no career progression
Quite simply if I had realised how much better than many other companies SAP is at encouraging individuals to participate, think and speak aloud - even to make mistakes I would never have left. The grass has not been greener
Long hours and travel
This is by adhering to policies, procedures and the industry regulatory requirements such as ISO standards, MHRA UK and EU GMP and manage the good practices such as the effectiveness of corrective and preventive measures of validation and verification
In all this is a solid position to work for provided you don't take on too much work at one time. they will allow you to grow at the pace you are able too and push you when needed. did i mention the free lunch.
people and amenities
can be demanding during busy seasons
GE is an amazing international organization with great opportunities, unfortunately there is a lots of room for improvement. It felt like no matter how good you were at your job, nothing was ever good enough, and being good at what you do was irrelevant, what matters more is who you know. Managers in general don't communicate as well as they could with their teams, and too much time is spent on meeting talking about a solution than is actually spent making it a reality. During my time at GE I made 3 good friends, one being my manager, and I thus had a good working relationship with my manager, unlike my previous manager who spoke to me rarely.
A once great company now a lumbering corporation plagued with middle management and lack of foresight. Founders left the company when it was sold to SAP and the culture nose dived soon after.
Still has good staff
To many empire building managers
