    Pros

    Extremely smart team, flexible work schedule, fortune 500 customer base. Been public but going private again which means we can focus on product growth and customer success rather than only profit.

    Cons

    Acquisitions have limited the focus and product technologies are out-dated. Susceptible to emerging technologies and startups.

    Advice to Management

    Segment R&D into development (factory) and research (innovation) so we can grow the products. Urge customers to move technology to latest revisions to reduce maintenance and thrashing with multiple versions or, if they won't, move to PS support only.

    Pros

    Very flexible work culture with some very smart and motivated co workers. Interesting problems to solve. Great team work at the product level.

    Cons

    Pros

    Lot to learn in supply chain, opportunities to understand and maybe solve some of the complex supply chain problems faced by large enterprises.Good work/life balance where some work very hard (but that crew is almost extinct now) and at their expense others that hardly work.

    Cons

    Services mindset all the way. Going-live and keeping lights-on has been motto. Technology and architecture are extremely outdated (even products acquired over the past year). All investment in building the network over the years has not paid off,wake up the market around you has moved on! Lot of big talk but nothing tangible has come out in the recent years. No integration between products, inability to conceive and build modular offerings, smart people with outdated skillsets.Top heavy, lots of people with big titles who contribute nothing to top/bottom line and have little accountability.Selective transparency top/down, lack of vision and determination to see through investments and inability to deliver to product roadmaps.

    Advice to Management

    For those in denial, both startups and established players are disrupting this space by solving the same problems in very different ways. You are not even in the ballpark on some of their offerings.The sweet spot (gaps between ERPs/MRPs is fast closing). It's a question of time before services margins start to shrink and lack of relevant products will result in being dropped out of the radar.

  8. Good people, confused direction. Services is the heart of the company and is being squeezed out

    Pros

    Casual office environment. Fun and interesting co-workers. Wide variety of clients in different industries. Good reputation. Reasonable compensation.

    Cons

    The product doesn't scale and has to be customized and so the services to deliver the product has to be extensive and expensive. Management is trying to wish this problem away by not hiring enough people to do the job and customers are not happy.

    Advice to Management

    More customer focus. Be a services company if that's what is required, stop pretending to be a product company.

    Pros

    Friendly Flexible working atmosphere; Fortune 500 customers supply chain enabler and is a unique opportunity for anyone to work in this environment. I enjoyed working with E2open customers in enabling their supply chain.

    Cons

    Need to move fast on achieving "time-to-market" goals by investing more on human capital and reaching goals faster so that E2open can be a leader and not a follower.

    Advice to Management

    You have all the right components of a great organization. All that is required is a great execution team to get it done.
