    Company at a crossroads

    Company is still downsizing after the Red Prairie merger

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Waukesha, WI

    ProsSalary, benefits, vacations. Allowed to work from home.

    ConsJDA continuing to downsize the legacy RedPrairie employees in the Implementation/Consulting Services group. This has led to lack of expertise of their own employees on JDA's products. Thus, JDA relies on 3rd party WMS vendors(Ascension, McGregor, Longbow, Tryon, etc.) to handle the go-live implementation. JDA's own employees are disengaged and lack opportunity to expand job and career skills. Even the CEO was downsized. In order to deliver quality service, you need experienced employees. Since the JDA/Red Prairie merger, I saw my project work reduced. The last 2 weeks of my employment, I spent at home doing Spring cleaning on company time due to lack of project work while the 3rd party vendors were busy making money from JDA.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBefore outsourcing career opportunities, let your own employees have a chance. Instead of paying for idle bench time, invest in training.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Friends Don't Let Friends work for JDA

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsGood technology and headed the right direction with the Cloud.

    ConsThe number of people who have to get on a call to approve a next step is unbelievable given JDA's size, and more indicative of an Oracle or SAP. Leadership is week: The former Red Prairie managers in sales are now all gone which is good as they were a complete waste and added no value.

    Back in February, they let some really strong people go--made absolutely no sense in a few cases and I question the motivation (egos) of the managers involved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it simple. You hired smart people, let them do their job without all the micromanagement.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
