    I have been working at E2open full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Executive Leadership really cares about culture, training and advancement. Employees are intelligent, motivated, empowered and hard working. Great work location. Really good benefits package and incentives.

    Cons

    Email churn, several processes that need to be improved, and high demand workload can lead to burn out while company is scaling staff.

    Advice to Management

    Executive Leadership -- find out how well your managers are doing as managers directly from their team. Ask good questions, dig into pros and cons. Support a collective management style and principles.

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

    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.

    Pros

    They have some smart people in management, have vision but need to execute. We will see what new management team can bring to the table.

    Cons

    This company has growth problems like most small publicly traded companies do. It is often difficult to keep good people on staff.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that management listen to your employees more, and make them part of the process more often instead of dictating from the top down.

    Allow folks to grow and voice their concerns without the fear of rubbing the big people te wrong way. eveyone is worried about saving their XXX and hence put blame on other people

    I worked at E2open (More than a year)

    Pros

    Used to be a good company with good people and decent product. There is not much of that left now.

    Cons

    New management focused on cutting costs and corners drove the Company to the ground. New team hired in Austin is inexperienced. CEO promotes people without credentials but can kiss up to him.

    Advice to Management

    Reinvest back into the Company and focus on product quality. Learn to promote good people.
