    Great experience and a good foundation to start with and learn a large amount of Sourcing and Procurement information to further your career.

    Cons

    Need to work harder to get noticed. Hard to get into other departments. If you are not immersed in the corporate culture you will not be promoted.l

    Advice to Management

    Please start a more comprehensive career plan for current employees. Start to become more immersed in the day to day operations of the specialists and make sure that they have all of the resources that they need.

    Pros

    For the first time in my career I am treated as an adult who can manage my time and projects without being micromanaged. The culture is one where you are given the ability to obtain your goals on your own schedule whether that be 8am or 8pm it's up to you. This concept actually makes you more productive as you chose the best time to optimize your time.

    Cons

    Due to the size and complexity of the various departments you have to be someone who is willing to reach out to others for guidance and product knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue promoting the culture, never allow it to die!

    Pros

    There are opportunities to do different things all the time. Some people may not like changes often but it affords people the chance to try new things. People are available and willing to help you at all levels.

    Cons

    There is no hand holding you through your carrier. You must take ownership of it yourself.

    Pros

    Smart people, exciting products, lots of opportunities for advancement. The majority of people like what they do and are happy which leads to a positive environment.

    Cons

    The acquisition by SAP will bring changes (mostly good). If you don't like change that could be an issue for some. On the other hand, it opens up lots of additional career options for those that can deal with change.

    Advice to Management

    Don't kill the Ariba culture and the start up mentality with big company stuff...
