I have been working at Ariba full-time for more than a year

Pros

Smart people, exciting products, lots of opportunities for advancement.
The majority of people like what they do and are happy which leads to a positive environment.

Cons

The acquisition by SAP will bring changes (mostly good). If you don't like change that could be an issue for some. On the other hand, it opens up lots of additional career options for those that can deal with change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't kill the Ariba culture and the start up mentality with big company stuff...

    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.
