Try to keep up

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at Ariba

Pros. Agile, no BS, get the job done.
. Smart people.
. People work with you to help unblock issues.
. Spend management product ideal for the economic downturn, so company actually made money.

Cons. Prepare to work.
. Things are very high paced. If you don't keep up, then you'll end up getting dragged along on the ground .. face down.
. You are just a grunt unless you've been there long enough to be deemed valuable to be promoted.
. Escalations are rampant. Always feeling you are in reactive mode rather than proactive.

Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down and let people catch up. Granted, some people are just too slow and those needs to be dealt with, but everybody needs a breather. You're dragging more people through the dirt with the current pace than you realize.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
