    Pros

    Good DDD design. Good agile practices. Good people. Good work-life balance. Latest tools.

    Cons

    Company has declared that 70% of all jobs must be outsourced after it merged with JDA Software. Total staff demotivation. Do not bother applying for work at this company (unless you live in India).

    Advice to Management

    Congratulations on completing the merger with JDA Software. It should present a compelling value proposition to the clients and also the investors.

    Pros

    Good people. benefits are good.

    Cons

    No Career planning or advancement. HR doesn't seem to know anything that happens day to day. Training is really horrible, too high of a overview. In-house programming, Skills are not really transferable somewhere else. Pay is really low for whats out there in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Need to spend more time working on career paths / workers goals and make it happen this includes HR which none of them seem not to have clue. Too many managers work way too many customers to deal with the engineers under them doing the work. Management lacks because of this. A plan should be put in place to get the work done instead of the words just get it done and the employees under them work frantically to get the work done.

    Pros

    RedPrairie is a wonderful company to work for. They have a relaxed environment and NO CUBICLES, but instead open desk areas. There hours are flexible and this means that you can have a great work/life balance. Everyone that I have met thus far is so inviting, welcoming, and friendly. From the point you walk into the doors you feel like you are part of a team.

    Cons

    Meetings-- everyday, twice a day, sometimes all day. Its very meeting heavy and somehow it still means that there is a lack of communication between departments when trying to keep products consistent.

    Pros

    Work from home and travel (could go either way). When visiting the office, the people in the office seemed to be friendly.

    Cons

    Very, very steep learning curve, high volume of high pressure work, and less-than-favorable learning environment.

    My story: After 8 days of initial training, I was on my own to learn a huge, complex software suite. Not to mention, the trainer admitted that the things we learned in those 8 days were rarely in use anymore and the company had mostly moved to a newer way of doing things. Opportunities for training rarely came along after that. After 2 weeks of self teaching, I was sent off to a client's location with a less than helpful partner, expected to know the software and contribute to billable hours. Managers tell you to talk to coworkers to get answers, but those coworkers are often too busy to give any legitimate help.

    Management was ever-changing and rarely willing to help.

    Compensation was low compared to other companies.

    Because of the unique software suite, the experience you gain at RP is not very applicable to other, future positions.

    Advice to Management

    Manage. Low level managers are out of touch with their team. Learning environment is almost non existent.

    Pros

    Flexible, remote working is optional. Great team and lots of resources to draw from. Enthusiastic workplace with plenty of challenge.

    Cons

    For a smaller company, lots of duplication of recording and rules and policies. Underwent two separate restructuring events in three years.
