    I have been working at Ariba full-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue promoting the culture, never allow it to die!

    Cons

    Barely I can think of any. I feel things change if we want to change ourselves. If you do same thing again & again, you will get same results. There is nothing like real magic in this world. We have to strive for progress to get rewarded. If someone wants free lunches, they should go to Temples & Gurudwaras.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe in & give more opportunities to IDC Team to show what they can do. I bet you will be benefited out of it.

    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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