Not an exciting or pleasant environment.

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

ProsGood compensation and benefits - 20 PTO days plus extra holiday in late December. The company is currently doing well, and is therefore a stable place to work.

ConsThe culture is (inadvertently) hostile to new blood and new ideas. The software stack is proprietary and increasingly out of date, yet new employees are expected to hit the ground running without any training. Development processes and policies are not the most effective, and lead to micro-managing, along with a lack of a true spirit of teamwork. Not a good place for a senior engineer to join, unless you don't mind being an over-paid code monkey.

Advice to Senior ManagementAriba Engineering has a culture problem, which needs to be addressed sooner or later. Change has to be initiated from the top.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
