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

    Pros

    Um, I don't know. No one ever went into the office so it was quiet.?..

    Cons

    Micro-management, mid level 'leadership' focused on their career at the expense of yours. No guidance on critical tasks, then you are chastised for not hitting the mark, although no one explained what the mark was.
    Manager based in Pittsburgh, no encouragement, only antagonistic remarks. Moved a colleague of mine into a completely different set of accounts (in essence, a demotion) without telling him why. If they want to get rid of you, you can hit your numbers, be put on "a plan", achieve your tasks on that plan, and still be let go.
    Horrible place, managers had no common sense management skills.

    Run. Away.

    Pros

    Compensation
    Work From Home
    Cool Gadgets (mac, iPad, iPhone, etc)

    Cons

    High turnover and always changing leaders. No one knows whats going on, no defined processes. Everyone is overworked, and leadership doesn't seem to care and are very far removed to actual day to day operations. Culture is not supportive but rather very closed and non-transparent. Very demotivating to work here.
