I worked at Ariba full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You get to work with talented and smart people.
Salary offered is competitive.

Cons

Laid back approach, few new features/enhancement coming in.
Good for people who want to retire or end their career here.
They own a propriety stack which is poorly documented and not much help from peers.
No opportunities for new joiners and first year you shall be working on fixing bugs, editing csvs, xmls, etc
Energy level is very low amongst employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to motivate your employees, simply giving ppt presentations and talks every quarter doesn't help.

    I have been working at Ariba

    Pros

    Learned a lot about huge configuration management issues and a **few** other interesting pickups. Good benefits and vacation.

    Cons

    Extremely arrogant management, very click-ish, terrible people skills, poor work life balance, millions of lines of code that is ancient and of little value to your next employer, very old architecture. They are opening a Shanghai development center and heavily staffing their Bangalore development center. You will spend a lot of time talking to them to all hours of the night.

    You will be assigned to work on bugs for your first year of employment. If you do not excel at this, you will not make the cut and will be let go. Absolutely no documentation and people are so stressed with work, few people will take the time help you out. You are on your own, Pilgrim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop and appreciate your people and not just the ones who have been there 10 years and know all the code.
