    Pros

    Transparent leadership all the way to the top An amazing team environment, always someone willing to help get a deal closed won or with additional training/advice to help you get better each and every month A company that takes care of their employees with amazing benefits and work life balance A top notch supply chain software tapping into the future of Machine Learning and AI

    Cons

    Honestly, hard to think of much here as I have worked for various companies and Blue Yonder has resided at the top of my list. But let's be honest there are always some cons. I would say initially it is a learning curve that you need to keep up with training as the products are technical and complex. However, they offer amazing training and an incredible platform to get past certain technical/product hurdles.

    Pros

    Increased product investment, clear mission and good leadership for the most part

    Cons

    As with many software companies, often a gap between what they tell customers they can provide vs what they can execute on

    An immature super tanker that can't dance

    Pros

    People are nice but not all of them know their stuff

    Cons

    Its a mess. Behind the scenes it's constant fire fighting. The products don't integrate and the have screwed up their cloud offering There is a-lot of over selling by sales who just want you to approve a spreadsheet and cost model. It's death by zoom and constant going over the same numbers in different meetings. The management are pushing for cultural change hence the rebranding to Blue Yonder and away from JDA but it's still an oil tanker and driven more by corporate behaviours and virtue signalling rather than leadership, subject matter expertise, creative thinking and agility. The Blue Yonder propositions themselves are middle of the road when it comes to ML and rooted in retail and not class-leading except for one one in retail. There are too many VP's and a lot of them are mediocre and too many are causing a log jam regards transformation. Pay is also behind industry standard.
