I worked at RedPrairie
Pros – The upper management seems to know what they want done and when. There are services to help employees get errands or other home tasks done when they are too busy at work. The office is clean and workstations are relatively comfortable and spacious. The coffee is free. The work culture is relatively relaxed for developers and the "business casual" dress code is, in reality, very flexible.
Cons – Lower management communication with new interns is nearly non-existent. There is no training program, and they won't even train you how to use their software product AS A USER. The source code is massive and complex, and would take years to fully comprehend by yourself, which you will be as a new employee. The learning environment is extremely frustrating and the attitude from "full timers" seems to be that interns are not worth their time, and interns should struggle to learn the code as the "full timers" probably did. When you're stuck and want nothing more than to be productive, be ready to receive inadequate responses and even be ignored when you ask questions. Pay was $12 an hour and there's no chance to increase that until graduation (when being hired full-time is not guaranteed).
Advice to Senior Management – Create a training program for your software development interns, starting with an introduction to the relevant software package on a user level. Try to ensure that interns are made to feel welcome to ask questions by their direct reports. If an employee is going to be managing an intern or other subordinates, train them in leadership.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
