    RedPrairie used to be wonderful, prior to JDA merger

    Former Employee - Project Manager
    Former Employee - Project Manager

    I worked at RedPrairie full-time

    Pros

    I loved RedPrairie. I had great co-workers: smart, passionate, loyal and supportive - most had been there 10 years+, surviving several mergers. Until JDA.

    I was happy with my office environment, my expenses were promptly reimbursed, my boss was brilliant and fair and as a whole, the company was well run. Some reviewers mentioned developers having to create features already promised by the sales force, but that's not unusual; yes, we worked long hours, and traveled a great deal, but that is the nature of the Professional Services industry. I feel we were compensated well and we were able to work from home at times. I've seen way worse!

    Cons

    Sadly, JDA bought RedPrairie in 2012. About half the employees in my office were cut before the purchase was even announced, many of whom were the backbone of this company. Instead of retraining or restructuring dedicated workers with long-term, established client relationships, JDA cut everyone loose. The handful that they kept were all gone within a few months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know what could be done now, except to hire back some of those RedPrairie employees. JDA has alienated people with one of the worst mergers ever, but RedPrairie clients are incredibly loyal folk, so who knows.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at RedPrairie.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by a head of Development in the local R&D office. The whole interview took app. 30 min and was rather a discussion that covered a broad range of different topics (about my past experience, my global vision, career plans, soft skills, language proficiency ) than a pure technical interview. I was really impressed about professional and friendly atmosphere.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult was change language and topics during the interview within short notice.
      So, it was good check of my ability to support different conversation topics and consequently emulate a short conf-call with a prospect or customer.
