Pros

If you lack alternatives, it really is not an energetic place, you will be looking for something new in a few months, very few people come in to the campus making it very difficult to get acclimated to the culture of the company

Cons

No excitement, they don't just sell spend management, they live it which makes the environment very spartan, management is all over the country which deflates the energy of the company

Advice to Management

leave the company and bring in people who are really hungry and and committed to double digit growth

    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 Management

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

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

    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 Management

    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.
