    I worked at Ariba full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    + Experience with many clients from diverse industries

    + Great networking opportunities

    + Great people

    + Laid back culture internally, clients may have different expectations

    Cons

    + Managers can be completely disconnected from your work. If you don't actively seek to make yourself visible you can be floating around without a promotion for a while.

    + Travel every week. It was a pro from me initially which quickly became a con.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so disconnected. I know you are busy as well but you need to streamline your visibility better to not be out of the loop and depend on self-reviews to make judgements on whether someone deserves a promotion.

    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

    Great team of consultants. Truly work like a team. Pay is quite good and immediate managers truly care about the consultants

    Cons

    Product has gone down hill since SAP acquisition in terms of quality. Focus on innovation without fixing existing bugs in the product. Testing of new features seems to be non existent

    Advice to Management

    Focus should be on delivering quality products, not just innovation and new features

    Pros

    Good QA and Developers in team

    Cons

    Director: the decision maker. Overrides all decisions. Never listens to team/anyone. Not a good leader.
    Scrum Leaders: Half-an-hour scrum leaders. Anything is half an hour work for scrum leaders. don't understand team problems.
    TRP panel: TRPs are not tecnically sound except few. Awards and recognition goes to TRPs having good rapport with director.
    QA: No Award given to QA. Employees not correctly judged.

    Advice to Management

    Director: Improve listening skills
    Scrum leaders: be a good leader. listen to team in scrum.
    TRP panel: guide team members. Code is not so complex. give control to others. dont think team will learn and you loose your importance

    SAP management: take action
