    Pros

    It's a great place to start your career and you will work with teams of smart and motivated people. If you take advantage of every opportunity to build your network, in a few years you can be well connected inside the supply chain community and with client companies. You will get a lot of responsibility very quickly and will have freedom to do the job your way as long as your results are good.

    Cons

    The current CEO, Eddie Capel, is frustrating a lot of long-time employees. Your experience will largely be shaped by who you work under and it can vary greatly. Your ability to move up will in large part be dictated by your ability to have upper level managers and directors advocate for you, simply doing your job well is not enough. At times, the sales team will give new clients totally unrealistic expectations of the product and then the implementation team [consultants] have to come in and be the bad guys, make the clients angry by telling them the truth about what the product can do, and work themselves to death to try to make the client happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Eddie.
    Stop overselling to get more clients, you are hanging the consultants out to dry.

    Great starting point for career, but too top and bottom heavy (leave after 3-5)

    Pros

    You learn at such a fast face. Get experience right out of the door that you wouldn't get anywhere else.

    Cons

    There are not enough 'manager' level people. New hires right out the door end up taking on responsibility (I feel) sooner than they've been trained to. No compensation for performance, rather based on entire company doing well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people what they're worth. Hire more industry experts from outside to supplement the lack of experience in the new hires

    Pros

    *Decent compensation
    *Excellent job experience to be gained from working on challenging projects for top tier clients
    *Very intelligent coworkers.

    Cons

    *Managers have a tendency to over-commit to clients, then push consultants to deliver.
    *It's very easy to be overworked and under-appreciated.
    *Company is making record profits, but gives sub-par annual raises.
    *Management is very against teleworking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Annual awards are great... but they are no replacement for compensation (salary and vacation).

    Pros

    Manhattan Associates offers a very fast paced and challenging work environment. When appropriately leveraged, the on the job training offers broad visibility and quick advancement. When you capitalize on opportunities as they are given to you, they will continue to grow in responsibility, which directly correlates to advancement and recognition within the company.

    Cons

    Truly self motivated and self driven individuals thrive at Manhattan Associates. Individuals without a clear personal drive struggle as the infrastructure for career guidance and coaching is weak. If you do not actively look for opportunities or advice, they can quickly pass you up or be missed all together.

    Pros

    Great benefits and coworkers. Stable company. Annual company meetings are fun...if you're able to attend.

    Cons

    No control of your life. Executives do not care about employees. Company hires 100+ college students each year. Only a fraction of them (~20%?) remain after 2 years so there's a huge gap between upper management and the people that actually perform the work. Employees are expected to forfeit personal lives to 'do whatever it takes' to perform on the unrealistic timeline that was promised to the client (i.e. lots of holiday and weekend work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit making promises to clients that the company can't keep. Treat your employees as people.
