    Great Company to work for

    Pros

    Exciting fast passed work environment. You get to work with really smart peers and support the backbone of commerce in the US. Supply chain is an exciting business and you work with the top companies in the world.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel. While the travel can be fun it is intense and it is not always to exciting places. The pay at MA is not where it should be for a company that requires so much travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the the pay levels and you can retain employees for the long term.

    A good place for a career, but not a co-op

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Technical Co-Op  in  Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Technical Co-Op in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    The only pro is that you get hands on experience.

    Cons

    As a technical co-op, I was assigned to a manager who did not have the time to give me assignments, let alone point me towards resources. The few times I was given a contact or a resource, they had unrealistic expectations of my abilities, given that there was no training or structure to the technical co-op program. I was expected to have intimate knowledge of how backend systems worked, but I had no exposure, no access, and no training/knowledge.

    Because of the nature of the business, documentation most likely doesn't exist, or is haphazardly cobbled together by random employees and difficult to find.

    At the time, all of the co-ops were assigned to sit in a meeting room together, the majority of whom all work on different teams. This isolated the co-ops and made it difficult to network with other Manahattan Associates employees, or make contacts that could help co-ops learn and grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate co-ops into the employee force. By separating them, you prevent them from seeking out knowledge from experts in the company and from learning what the real culture of the company is like.

    Provide a standardized training session for technical co-ops on the layout of the systems they work on, such as WMS or others, so they can learn which tools Manhattan uses and familiarize themselves with these when they are not given assignments.

    Best Supply Chain Company, sometime very conservative

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Director R&D  in  Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Director R&D in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    This is a review of the R&D organization
    - Decent pay
    - Opportunities to grow
    - Ability to work on own ideas
    - Very good culture and customer focused
    - Hardworking employees

    Cons

    - Some bad managers can spoil the company name and employee morale. There is no process(in some cases they are encouraged) to help managers improve their management style.
    - In some cases foreign workers can be exploited by low salary and process that lock in employees.
    - No transparency in HR process
    (As you can see most of my cons is regarding the HR department which has allowed bad practices to continue)
    - Lagging benefits
    - If you are a technology enthusiast then this may not be a good fit as they are a very slow moving company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager training that focuses on people management. Do not reward the individual contributors by making them managers unless they can be good people managers.

    Young Company, Boring Work

    Former Employee - Functional Consultant Intern  in  Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Functional Consultant Intern in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    The company culture is great. Practically everyone is young (<28) and very active. Work place is always bustling and there are always things to do with other people from the company. Very reputable company that opens doors at many other companies.

    Cons

    This is not what I imagined consulting to be. The "Functional Consultant" job is essentially a glorified trouble shooter. Every project seemed to be like the last.
