    I worked at Ariba as an intern

    Pros

    Since Ariba is part of a large and mature company, there's endless opportunities and resources to use for growth and there's intelligent people across the board
    Interns work on fun projects
    The company spends a lot of resources providing great social and learning events: a conference in Seattle, Educational Power Hours, Giants Game, Boat Cruise

    Cons

    Felt like there could have been more involvement and interest from management in my development; you have to be comfortable figuring out things for yourself and learn how to take advantage of opportunities in order to succeed and do meaningful projects. But being proactive and learning on your own is an essential skill to have.

    Also Ariba is a company with a meaningful mission to make the process of getting stuff for governments, businesses, and organizations much simpler (although the tagline Make Procurement Awesome may not be clear to someone who hasn't worked there). I think communicating the mission more thoroughly to interns and employees in conferences can allow employees and interns to do better work.

    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.

    I worked at Ariba as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I started with SAP Ariba as part of their summer Internship Experience Project which is only in its 2nd year. It's easy to tell that they're gearing up their internship program to compete with other valley tech tycoons and leverage the early talent in the Bay Area. Over the summer, we were treated to an orientation trip to Seattle, a multitude of social events, face time with higher management, and free lunch on-site. The mentoring structure of any particular internship highly depends on the hiring manager, however. Luckily, I had an amazing one who made my first corporate internship very relaxed and stress-free.

    Cons

    There were some kinks as the program is new. Many interns weren't given official desks for lack of space and had to sit at side tables near the bathroom, we had to figure payroll out on our own and the first paycheck came 1 month and a half in, but all were understandable since the program managers went out of their way to accommodate us. The average employee is older and this impacted the company culture, I couldn't envision returning for a full-time position.

    Advice to Management

    Great job with iXp - can I come back for summer 2017? ;)

    I have been working at Ariba full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is an absolute fantastic place to work! It has been the best in my almost 20 year career! I work from home. There are constant opportunities for growth within my role, but I also have the option to move into other roles within the company. We are growing fast, and 2017 is the year to SCALE! I work in a culture of innovation with a teamwork environment. There is great emphasis on Work/Life Balance. Competitive pay & benefits with things such as 15 PTO days, 5 Personal Days, and unlimited sick time starting the first year!

    Cons

    I haven't experienced any negative aspects of working for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
