    Pros

    Exciting fast passed work environment. You get to work with really smart peers and support the backbone of commerce in the US. Supply chain is an exciting business and you work with the top companies in the world.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel. While the travel can be fun it is intense and it is not always to exciting places. The pay at MA is not where it should be for a company that requires so much travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the the pay levels and you can retain employees for the long term.

    Best Supply Chain Company, sometime very conservative

    Current Employee - Director R&D  in  Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Director R&D in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Manhattan Associates full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is a review of the R&D organization
    - Decent pay
    - Opportunities to grow
    - Ability to work on own ideas
    - Very good culture and customer focused
    - Hardworking employees

    Cons

    - Some bad managers can spoil the company name and employee morale. There is no process(in some cases they are encouraged) to help managers improve their management style.
    - In some cases foreign workers can be exploited by low salary and process that lock in employees.
    - No transparency in HR process
    (As you can see most of my cons is regarding the HR department which has allowed bad practices to continue)
    - Lagging benefits
    - If you are a technology enthusiast then this may not be a good fit as they are a very slow moving company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager training that focuses on people management. Do not reward the individual contributors by making them managers unless they can be good people managers.

    Great consultants, so-so managers.

    Pros

    It's a great place to start your career and you will work with teams of smart and motivated people. If you take advantage of every opportunity to build your network, in a few years you can be well connected inside the supply chain community and with client companies. You will get a lot of responsibility very quickly and will have freedom to do the job your way as long as your results are good.

    Cons

    The current CEO, Eddie Capel, is frustrating a lot of long-time employees. Your experience will largely be shaped by who you work under and it can vary greatly. Your ability to move up will in large part be dictated by your ability to have upper level managers and directors advocate for you, simply doing your job well is not enough. At times, the sales team will give new clients totally unrealistic expectations of the product and then the implementation team [consultants] have to come in and be the bad guys, make the clients angry by telling them the truth about what the product can do, and work themselves to death to try to make the client happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Eddie.
    Stop overselling to get more clients, you are hanging the consultants out to dry.
