    Looks like they are moving most of their software development to India. SAP is in cost-cutting mode.

      @Heimer We got an email saying about 4400 employees asked to leave and they will hire more people(hiring location not mentioned). Heard they are asking people to take early retirement.

      What does early retirement even mean. Is that applicable only to very senior folks?

      It means people in their 40s are fucked. Enjoy getting old in tech. Fuck SAP!

    • Anyone know if it’s started yet? Seems like they’d get everyone out before mid March if they give 30 days to find an internal job like they did last year. Then they’d all be gone by last March payroll.

      I know one guy who got laid off two weeks ago after working at SAP for 12 years.

    It was inevitable. I see soo many engineers just drifting. Doing nothing productive except fancy spreadsheets, attend meetings etc. They don't have enthusiasm to learn anything new or take initiative. Better let them go and instead pay more to deserving engineers.

      Any idea when the downsizing will start?

      No idea. It will be in Q1 itself. That's for sure

    • It started already in some board areas.

    Their press release says they will be offering “early retirement” to some of their employees. If that’s an euphemism for layoffs, it’s the worst one ever.
