No clearly defined career path

Communicate more about major changes to the company - how do they impact us, when will they impact us, etcc

    "Beware of Jobs in HR=No fairness, compensation is based on who you sit w/at the lunch table and no development of people"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits and if you are in with the "in crowd" in HR you're good

    Cons

    The VP of HR signs off and changes all raises and reviews and has 0 professional discussions w/anyone.
    She's too busy shopping online in the morning and talking about hiring good nannies.
    There is NO training or employee development
    Counting myself 5 people left HR in 18 mos and the group size in Pittsburgh is 16 people (33%)

    Advice to Management

    Find people who understand the term "leadership" and people development and hire them. You're overpaying your Sr. Mgmt and getting nothing in return but disgruntled people, high turnover and apathy.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Ariba offers a lot of opportunities for flex time. It's a great place to be if you have a family.

    Cons

    The organization can be siloed. People are not very open unless they are part of the same team. It can be hard to get to know people outside of your team.

    Advice to Management

    Management should focus on finding easier ways to communicate the complex nature of Ariba's products and services to its customers.
