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

    Pros

    Open-minded, friendly atmosphere, high amount of days of paid sick leave, great opportunities to grow fast if one is ambitious, good facilities one can ask for, also ergo equipment.

    Cons

    Company is extending and many procedures are being slowly introduced. That can be both positive for people, who need to follow certain processes and negative for more creative people, who like to think independently and are result oriented.

    Creeping SAPism that might restrict the freedom of Aribians to run things with the

    Do your best to maintain autonomy and avoid being straight-jacketed by creeping rules and regulations from SAP

    Pros

    The company is in a great place to capitalize on it's position in the industry as the market rebounds. But aside from the company position, it's an employer that does a great job of giving flexibility, work/life balance and good compensation.

    Cons

    Communication across the multiple cities and departments could be better. And sometimes it feels as though we can't decide if we are a big or small company, the danger being we'll slip into the bad characteristics of each.

    Advice to Management

    We need more open access and communication with senior leaders and decision makers. The company is not so large that we shouldn't have good, fast, open communication across teams, departments, vertical titles and locations.
