    Pros

    Never in my life did I imagine such a workplace existed. Great team, great pay, trusted and can work independently, good work-life balance, the company cares whether or not employees are happy and actually understand how that affects our results, they invest in employee development, transparent management that focuses on results instead of meaningless trivialities. I hope it is always this good. I'll never leave!

    Cons

    There is a lot of change right now, and it has certainly caused turnover during the merger. I actually prefer such an environment, but can understand why it would be troubling for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, with one exception. We could stand to work on our succession planning, which would certainly help ease the minds of those adverse to such changes and help us to avoid confusing leadership vacuums. It's been a bit herky jerky and is definitely an area where we should seek to improve. Otherwise, I think we are headed in the right direction and will eventually see the results we hope for.

    Growth opportunity hard to come by in certain roles. Work life balance-long hours at times. Working weekends to stay caught up. High turnover. Company seems to have difficulty recovering after RP merger despite high hopes for future from upper management.

    JDA builds careers

    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.

    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.
