    Great work experience, great people, but work/life balance off kilter

    Pros

    Manhattan pays comparable salaries for non-tech positions. Pretty decent benefits.

    Cons

    As of 2013, new leadership seems to be a bit undecisive, which has caused extra effort on an already taxed staff.

    In addition, when an associate resigns, the responsibilities tend to be distributed through the affected organization (usually one person). Management waits until something is broken before bringing in contractors to fill the gap.

    Non-bonus eligible raises have tended to be rather low over the past couple of years, even for high performers. This is despite the fact that Manhattan has been consistently had record earnings for the same period with zero debt and over $100 million in cash.

    There was a big push earlier this year to complete an Atlanta Journal-Constitution "2013 Best Place to Work" which is touted everywhere, however, many are curious how this could be given all of the above cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More decisiveness in direction; given record earnings, zero debt and $100 million in cash, spread the wealth a little for non-bonus eligible employees; the message read from not backfilling positions does not help an already understaffed organization.

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, if you want to work in supply chain, it's the best option.

    Cons

    There used to be a good leadership team, but most of the good ones left, even all the good HR people have moved on. There is no company culture, other than fighting fires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good managers, recognize those that do a good job.

    Pros

    Friendly people, embedded in wide array of businesses, innovative products, wide range of age groups, and extremely diverse. Salaries are reasonable, benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Great starting point for a career, but career development is lacking unless you are willing to live on the road for a few years. Management turnover makes continuity a challenge. Salaries while decent are not the highest in this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people.

    Pros

    Manhattan has a great office in Atlanta, but as a Consultant you dont spend much time there. The opportunity to travel is something I enjoyed but might not be for everyone.

    Cons

    Work - Life Balance is a little skewed. Training was next to nothing, 2nd day on job I was at a client site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us a little more training!

    Pros

    Great team, environment, culture, dedication to improvement

    Cons

    None yet. The company has a lot of young people so this is kind of the training grounds for professional newbies, so there's still a lot of personality and spunk, which is a good thing, but can sometimes seem like The Real World at times....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep minds open, create a positive atmosphere that's open to new ideas, be open to progress

    Pros

    Company is doing great financially. Smart, friendly and dedicated co-workers. Many people stay here for years and are happy to mentor newer people. Good benefits - 401K match and health insurance. More forays recently into community service (Habitat for Humanity, Light the Night, etc.) Employs a lot of good people who strive to do a good job.

    Cons

    No upward mobility; promotions are few and far between. You often feel as if you're spinning your wheels here and your career is going nowhere. Pay is just average. Office is way out in a suburb of Atlanta. Many jobs could be done remotely, yet no telecommuting is allowed. This seems like obsolete thinking for a technology company in 2013. No clear objectives or expectations from management. Very little appreciation or acknowledgement for hard work/long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they're worth, and show them a little appreciation, and they will stay.
