Pros

Work hard/play hard environment. Ariba has a knack for bringing out the best in its employees. My colleagues here are some of the smartest I've worked with. Everyone is highly motivated and has a great sense of personal achievement. The company provides a good benefits package, with a great PTO policy. Everyone gets 20 days PTO right off the bat. It helps achieve a good work/life balance, and there is no distinction between job roles in that capacity. The company has just made some major strides to reposition itself competitively, and has succeeded in doing so. It's an exciting time to be at Ariba.

Cons

There are not a whole lot of downsides that really stand out. For the most part, Ariba is a fantastic place to work. Communication amongst teams within the organization could use some improvement, as well as cooperation. There are some organizations within that speak a different "language" than the others, and there is a real stubbornness that is difficult to work past to get people to get on the same page, as they are used to the usual status quo. But this is a minor complaint. It's a wonderful place to work with great, hard-working people. That's about all I can think of.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on the path that we are on. The transition to subscription software model was a great move. Company is looking good!

    Pros

    Motivated & 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.

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

    Compensation 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.

    Pros

    Engineering team members are friendly and cooperative. Communication between manager and employees open. Flexible working hours as long as you get the job done. Manager approves all PTO as long as there is no conflicts. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Engineering team seems to be shifting to India. Communication between teams need improvement. Top-level decisions were not known by employees until carried out.
