    JDA builds careers

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at JDA Software

    Pros

    JDA puts a lot of effort and scrutiny on associate learning. They have a strong training program for all associates and put an emphasis on building the skills and knowledge for associates to advance in their careers.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change, so associates must be flexible and adaptable. This creates opportunities for those who can roll with it; not so good for those who fear change.

    I have been working at JDA Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    JDA's salary is well above most software companies. On top of your salary you also are eligible for a yearly bonus.

    Cons

    The training could better. Although, some might like to be just thrown in to figure out how everything works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow contractors and employees room to grow with the company.

    I have been working at JDA Software full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you like being micromanaged on a daily basis, this is the place for you. Hire new management that you can trust and is not more concerned about what they are wearing and what car they are driving and more concerned about improving the company's market footprint. Continuous layoffs.

    Cons

    Many smart people with professional intellect. Good benefits and compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your team do their job and schedule weekly, monthly meetings instead of calling, IMing and emailing your team on a daily basis about what deals they have closed. Very distracting. New CEO needs to take a good hard look at the management team.
