    I have been working at RedPrairie full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home and travel (could go either way). When visiting the office, the people in the office seemed to be friendly.

    Cons

    Very, very steep learning curve, high volume of high pressure work, and less-than-favorable learning environment.

    My story: After 8 days of initial training, I was on my own to learn a huge, complex software suite. Not to mention, the trainer admitted that the things we learned in those 8 days were rarely in use anymore and the company had mostly moved to a newer way of doing things. Opportunities for training rarely came along after that. After 2 weeks of self teaching, I was sent off to a client's location with a less than helpful partner, expected to know the software and contribute to billable hours. Managers tell you to talk to coworkers to get answers, but those coworkers are often too busy to give any legitimate help.

    Management was ever-changing and rarely willing to help.

    Compensation was low compared to other companies.

    Because of the unique software suite, the experience you gain at RP is not very applicable to other, future positions.

    Advice to Management

    Manage. Low level managers are out of touch with their team. Learning environment is almost non existent.
