    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A few great core products, mostly acquired over the years (except good ol' MMS).
    Opportunities to work on hard business problems.
    A few great people scattered about in the mix to work with.
    You learn a bunch working there, wearing many hats as reqiured.
    Doing reasonably well despite the tough new economy.
    Above par pay and benefits for this economy.

    Cons

    Good ol' boys club reigns supreme. CEO generally feared.
    Insufficient innovation value from within; M&A is primary new innovation value conduit.
    Long history of thinly-integrated products requiring repeated field rework and R&D disruption.
    Insufficient product investments for customer maintenance fees charged.
    Doing reasonably well because of repeated layoffs and massive new India presence.
    Major move to India further destroyed staff morale, adding significant risk and product doldrums
    Million$ lost to repeated big idea investments that went nowhere, all swept under a rug.

    Advice to Management

    For those still at JDA: When giving advice to JDA leadership, it is important to position it in a way that if it is very good, senior management will think they thought of it and adopt it as their own, forgetting its source. At best, an associate might get to see his ideas adopted and flourish, but don't expect much more than that, such as the ability to re-train for a new position (as some were promised) when yours goes to a much less expensive, much more junior person overseas. C'est la guerre.
