Good place to work if you are in a senior position.

Director (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Ariba

ProsMotivated & talented employees. Spend management on-demand is something that will be a killer business app. It has taken a long time for Ariba to build these application and now there seems to be some pay-off. Engineering teams are pretty strong. Also, lately there is a sense of renewed vigor.

ConsCompany focus can waver sometimes. Also, some management issues from time to time. Product management as an organization is not very strong. Sometimes there is a tendency to come across "my way or the highway" kind of senior managers. Profits have been elusive for a long time now and that doesnt help.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation for key players need to be reviewed. There is a strong resentment againt some of the senior leadership amongst the ranks and it will help to do things in order to curb that.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
