I have been working at Ariba full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- smart and motivated people to work with
- great support from management on career development
- ample vacation time

Cons

- work long / weekend hours sometimes :(
- open to hear new ideas for improvement but slow (if at all) to adopt
- out of date, or lack of adequate documentation on processes in certain areas
- too many meetings (managers are sometimes hard to catch)

Advice to Management

- host more team building activities
- enforce importance of work-life balance
- listen to and consider employees ideas and concerns
- despite your all day meetings, make time for your employees

    I worked at Ariba full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with talented and smart people.
    Salary offered is competitive.

    Cons

    Laid back approach, few new features/enhancement coming in.
    Good for people who want to retire or end their career here.
    They own a propriety stack which is poorly documented and not much help from peers.
    No opportunities for new joiners and first year you shall be working on fixing bugs, editing csvs, xmls, etc
    Energy level is very low amongst employees.

    Advice to Management

    You need to motivate your employees, simply giving ppt presentations and talks every quarter doesn't help.
