    I have been working at Ariba full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The workplace itself has a great atmosphere, and its good business to have such responsive supervisors and management. There are also plenty of development opportunities.

    Cons

    The environment can be fast-paced, the job itself will induce moderate-to-high stress, and the worm can often feel repetitive, but that's expected for customer support.

    Advice to Management

    Management does great listening to its team and would be doing the right thing by staying the course.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with a good group of people. The old Ariba team is an excellent group of people.

    Cons

    Ariba is now SAP and its a different place now. Working at SAP can be a great thing if you like the big company atmosphere. If not, look elsewhere.

    Hit or miss with management, I have had 3 directors in 5 years. Two were exceptional, the current one is the biggest snake I have ever worked for, watch your back...

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen to customer and employee feedback or some of the up and coming P2P competitors and going to run all over us.
