Current Employee - Accounting in Pittsburgh, PA
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Most middle managers are very good, great time off & benefits. Work/Life balance is geared totally towards Life, which at times can be a con.

Cons

Promotions and raises are rare. Those that are promoted are often undeserving and promoted only because it is less expensive than paying a competent replacement. Employee moral is low. Top Management has no clue or simply does not care what is going on with their eployees.

Advice to Management

Keep your competent employees and drop the dead weight, instead of promoting the dead weight and letting your competent employees leave. A dollar per share hit now is better than all of the problems that you are going to have. An ounce of prevention...

    Pros

    Fun, energetic, motivated workforce
    Recognition and awards tied directly to performance
    Great benefits, time off
    Management fully understands work/life balance
    Monthly involvement in different charities
    Community involvement

    Cons

    Salaries could be more competitive
    Global operations are sometimes inconsistent.
    Sales, delivery, and operations are somewhat misaligned in their objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make more of an effort to interact with employees at all levels. For a smaller company such as Ariba, this could be very feasible and prove to enhance morale. After reading through some of the posts from teams in IDC, it sounds like they could really benefit from 1:1 interactions with our executive team.
