I worked at Vendavo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The central idea behind the product is compelling. SAP resells it so even though the company is small, they get some big company advantages when it comes to sales and marketing.

Cons

Product is hard/complicated to install and maintain. It is really more of a framework for pricing than a finished product. Lots of customization is required, and as a result, time to benefit is long, and it becomes very hard to install new versions or take advantage of new features.

Customer expectations are often not set appropriately during the sales cycle, leading to fire drills during implementation.

Advice to Management

Sell what you have.

    Pros

    If you come from the pricing space and want to make a difference for a larger set of companies, Vendavo could be a place for you to make your mark.

    Cons

    The technology is fairly dated and brittle with a few new bright spots. Vendavo makes most of its money from services. The culture is a little raw and A-holes survive far too long there.

    Advice to Management

    Aggressively modernize your platform to compete seriously with Pros. Weed out bad apples much sooner. Stop the infighting by figuring out which markets you are going to serve and staff and incent accordingly to serve those markets.
