    Great place to learn, lots of opportunities if you're willing to ask.

    Pros

    Great upper management, very flexible hours, holiday time off

    Cons

    Should consider pay raises more frequently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more when they take on WAY more than what's asked of them or what's in their job description. Easy way to lose good people.

    I have been working at JDA Software full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some very smart and innovative people. Good work/life balance. Competitive salaries.

    Cons

    JDA execs drove away most of the best talent after the merger, either through the promise of off-shoring the vast majority of dev and infrastructure jobs or through inserting ineffective middle management people to manage RedPrairie employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have heard that the new CEO is making strides to turn it around, but it'll be a long haul after train wreck he inherited from Brewer.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer - Intern in Waukesha, WI

    I worked at JDA Software as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Managers and coworkers were very laid back and very flexible with my school schedule. Coworkers were friendly and helpful

    Cons

    Average pay, didn't learn much during my time there, commute to MSOE could get difficult at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay competitively for good talent and don't try to pressure upcoming graduates to take such mediocre offer letters. At least work out the terms so that it is not like a take it or leave it type deal. I left as a result.

    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.
