Current Employee - Sales in Pittsburgh, PA
Current Employee - Sales in Pittsburgh, PA
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

- Extremely smart, dedicated and fun people - Regional leadership is strong - Market leadership makes it easier to get to decision makers - Good benefits -- health and 5 weeks vacation (including shut down week between Christmas and New Year's Day) - Despite the bad press, Calderoni is a good guy who cares about his people - Marketing (especially events such as AribaLive) are very well done and helpful

Cons

- Bureaucracy -- decisions are made by large committees - Deal approval process is arduous, adding weeks to sales cycle - Key management members manage by fear and intimidation - Politics are very thick for a such a small company - Lead development is weak. You need to drive 100% of your own pipeline

Advice to Management

- Understand that culture is built by action not words. - Remember that most people respond to intimidation by leaving. - Use the company's stock to reward your people, more often. It's a great retention tool.
