    I worked at Ariba full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Catered lunch
    Beer bash
    Decent location
    Pays salary on time
    Good for retirement

    Cons

    At Ariba the entire engineering organization does bug fixing. They have entire 6 month releases just to fix bugs. The code base in ancient and must be submitted to Computer History Museum in MV. Fixing bugs adds more bugs and then fix those bugs and repeat. Some old timers are really good and helpful, they are probably sticking around because of good pay or lack of opportunity outside. Most have surrendered their career goals to fixing bugs in Aribas code base and would have no future outside.

    HR is a joke and you see them only during entry and exit interview. Don't get fooled by their rigourous long running interview process. I was scheduled 2 onsites and met a dozen of people asking interesting design and algo question. None of that shall ever be used. Good luck if you decide to join Ariba, and best of luck on next job if u plan to stick around long. Might be good for managerial role, but certainly not for engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act straight and move the entire engineering team to India.
