Pros

Beast of Bread makes it easy to open doors. Their business development process is well oiled and most the staff is experienced in the process. Generally an extremely well focused company.

Cons

The company is overly focused on their flagship product, WMS. Their solution process always leads with WMS and then whatever else fits the requirements. A true supply chain company focuses on the solution first and then picks the applications that support the solution not the other way around.

Advice to Management

To gain market share and continue to grow, the company needs to expand the solution footprint and have the confidence to lead with other products besides WMS. If not, they should look to sell the Company (WMS) to a bigger Supply Chain player or ERP vendor.

    Pros

    Manhattan Associates is a good place to start as an entry level consultant. I learned a great deal about supply chain management and software implementation. I was also given a fair amount of responsibility as a new hire and had the opportunity to work with major clients. However, guidance and leadership is minimal, and it is up to you to seek out the support you need. This could be good or bad depending on your preference. Many young, intelligent and personable colleagues made the working environment more interesting.

    Cons

    The value of your experience is largely based on the client and project you are assigned, which evidently you have very little control of. Travel is often to desolate locations, where warehouses and distribution centers are typically located. Long hours are often required, with no additional compensation or recognition. Minimal vacation days are given. Manhattan Associates is only in the supply chain industry, so it limits your opportunity to transfer elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees better for excessive work to increase job satisfaction/motivation.


  2. Great place to start a career after school, but leave after 3 to 4 years of learning. No work/life balance.

    Pros

    Great place to start your career because there is a lot to learn in terms of technology. I was in Java/J2EE technology spectrum, and there is lot of technology in use.

    Cons

    Long hours. Poor coordination/leadership means you spend hours of effort to achieve a simple thing. The management even in R&D doesn't involve in technical aspects and all they care about is whether the job is done or not without any leadership/coordination/direction.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing since the culture of workaholic/sweetshop is deep rooted.
