    Pros

    JDA has been a great place to work. My managers have always treated me well and as a company they used to be excellent at focusing on the employees

    Cons

    Since they were bought out by a Private Equity Firm, everything has gone down hill. Constant lay offs, low morale, and just no focus on the employee. This used to be such a fun place to work. I look around and recognize no one anymore.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, market pay scale, ability to move between organizations if applicable. There are some tremendously talented people and plenty of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Long hours. Due to the nature of the business and company structure, the work life balance is not the best. This seems to be a problem across a number of teams.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to help retain the key people. If not financially, other ways to offer rewards for the dedicated hours that are required to keep things moving.

    Pros

    Great Salary and a nice North Scottsdale location.

    Cons

    Numerous. Note that titles at JDA are without meaning and the culture is among the most awkward and antiquated I have encountered.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers.
    Always busy with something.
    Good place to gain experience.
    Trying to improve "associate" satisfaction through surveys.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from direct managers.
    Lack of quality commitment.
    Still seems to be a focus on outsourcing jobs although upper management has stopped projecting that attitude during quarterly meetings.
    Recently implemented Scan safe which filters all internet traffic making it impossible to do work (ie Using maven to resolve dependencies) and prevents research and innovation through accessing new technologies and blog posts (implemented because people thought it appropriate to torrent at work).
    Lack of career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the cons. Boost moral. Expand career opportunities state side. Foster innovation. Be honest and open with your employees.

    Pros

    Strong product set, very knowledgeable resources, strong supply chain and retail expertise. Relatively well known in the marketplace, depending on vertical/product. Pays well.

    Cons

    Management sometimes lacks direction. Overall morale is dropping. Used to be more about the customer and leading the marketplace with our solutions. Now it's just transactional and trying to get the next sale, however that may be. Significant internal process and organizational issues.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to focusing on the products, streamline processes, and improving employee morale.
