Pros

Ariba has a very rigorous recruitment process and the people hired are top notch.
Peers and colleagues will be very helpful and intelligent
Weekly beer bash on Fridays
Perks and benefits pretty decent by Bay area standard.
Flexible on working from home, good for people with family.

Cons

No innovation. They have a propriety code which is very heavy and interdependent among its modules. No documentation and takes time to learn.
Employee morale is very low. They keep on hiring more and more VPs, directors and PMs some of whom are of no good.
Some teams have to co-ordinate with India team on daily basis which can get frustrating.
Life for Ops team is a hell.
Senior management talks big in managerial and technical jargons and delivers less on paper.
