    I worked at E2open full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good technical resources who were not properly supported by senior management

    Cons

    Lack of leadership - CEO/CFO who took the company public were bean counters who ultimately doomed the company by not investing in new products

    Advice to Management

    Private equity firm needs to be be bolder in pursuing new technologies as the giant leaders like SAP and Oracle can't move fast

    Pros

    The people are fantastic and there is a great work life balance with the ability to work from home when needed.

    Cons

    Since the company went private, everything is about cost. They are sacrificing employee quality in favor of a cheaper workforce in India. Anytime someone leaves, they are replaced with a person in India, if at all. I miss the camaraderie that used to exist in our dwindling office.

    Pros

    Smart people on certain teams, challenging assignments, decent benefits --------- if you can pay the price of sacrificing your soul

    Cons

    Manipulative leadership team, zero work life balance, employees are allowed to act with complete insubordinance and are unprofessional. Makes it hard to get your job done without losing your sanity.

    Advice to Management

    wipe the slate clean and start over

    I worked at E2open full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff are friendly and the company does encourage workers to plan events to improve culture.

    Cons

    The company will work you to death. Very little work life balance. Decisions on hiring and firing are based on whether or not you have favor with executive leadership. Most decisions on "change" or "improvement" seem to be made without much thought to the consequences of how those decision affect employees that must implement the same (with little to no executive sponsorship or involvement). New "open concept" and low wall cubes remodel is a big thumbs down.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop hiring or promoting your friends and focus on vastly improving communication, new hire training, and product improvement. Hire the proper amount of staffing to accomplish achievable goals.

    Pros

    Nice people do work in this office. Most are talented professionals.

    Cons

    Formally Orchestro, now E2Open. My advise to anyone thinking of working here. Don't!!

    Management is totally incompetent. They are afraid to say no to the customer because they don't want to lose the few that are still with the company. All the smart customers have long since departed... The remaining customers are literally running the show at E2Open / Orchestro.

    A typical day is constantly racing around and bending over backwards trying to please the customer and taking no time to actually fix the extensive problems with their product. This boat was sinking a few years ago. It still is today.

    I BEG YOU not to not make the same mistake that I did. Run away while you can. This place will be the death of you. Seriously!

    You can do much better in the Rogers area.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the product before its too late. Some would say it is already too late...

    Pros

    The marketing team was full of A+ players and put together strong campaigns that built brand recognition and industry profile.

    Cons

    Leadership through the challenges of going private and transitioning the corporate HQ to move to Austin was lacking and not transparent. There was a widespread feeling that the guys at the top screwed up and made out like bandits, while the little guys got screwed.

    Advice to Management

    The company seems to be on a better path now. If the product team can fully integrate acquired technologies and build real value for customers, they'll do well.
