Pros

Motivated & talented employees. Spend management on-demand is something that will be a killer business app. It has taken a long time for Ariba to build these application and now there seems to be some pay-off. Engineering teams are pretty strong. Also, lately there is a sense of renewed vigor.

Cons

Company focus can waver sometimes. Also, some management issues from time to time. Product management as an organization is not very strong. Sometimes there is a tendency to come across "my way or the highway" kind of senior managers. Profits have been elusive for a long time now and that doesnt help.

Advice to Management

Compensation for key players need to be reviewed. There is a strong resentment againt some of the senior leadership amongst the ranks and it will help to do things in order to curb that.

    Pros

    Engineering team members are friendly and cooperative. Communication between manager and employees open. Flexible working hours as long as you get the job done. Manager approves all PTO as long as there is no conflicts. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Engineering team seems to be shifting to India. Communication between teams need improvement. Top-level decisions were not known by employees until carried out.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A good job right out of college but not for anyone with any kind of experience. Although, it does not take a college graduate to be able to do the work - a high school student, at most, could do what most people there do.

    Cons

    It was like going through high school all over again. There was a huge lack of opportunity for advancement for those that weren't willing to "play" the corporate politics game.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your internal talent (at all levels) before allowing external hiring. An do not focus on only their Ariba experience, but also what they have done in the past.
