Beware of Jobs in HR=No fairness, compensation is based on who you sit w/at the lunch table and no development of people

I have been working at Ariba

Pros

Great benefits and if you are in with the "in crowd" in HR you're good

Cons

The VP of HR signs off and changes all raises and reviews and has 0 professional discussions w/anyone.
She's too busy shopping online in the morning and talking about hiring good nannies.
There is NO training or employee development
Counting myself 5 people left HR in 18 mos and the group size in Pittsburgh is 16 people (33%)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find people who understand the term "leadership" and people development and hire them. You're overpaying your Sr. Mgmt and getting nothing in return but disgruntled people, high turnover and apathy.

    Pros

    Ariba offers a lot of opportunities for flex time. It's a great place to be if you have a family.

    Cons

    The organization can be siloed. People are not very open unless they are part of the same team. It can be hard to get to know people outside of your team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should focus on finding easier ways to communicate the complex nature of Ariba's products and services to its customers.

    Pros

    Smart people
    Process oriented (can be a con)
    Good compensation and benefit, 4 weeks vacation + 1 week Christmas break

    Cons

    The company is stuck with 10 year old technology stack with ill-documented proprietary frameworks. What you learn is mostly only applicable to Ariba. Not much interesting stuff is going on. The company is not really innovative. People seem busy but they are not producing much. This is a quite boring place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to innovate. It's not easy given the budgetary constraints, but as time goes by, the proprietary stuff will only get more out-dated. Company will have hard time attracting and retaining people.
