    Pros

    Decent benefit package, work from home.

    Cons

    We are bleeding great programmers. Over the years Ive seen past employees head to Silicon Valley and Microsoft and Amazon. The company doesn’t do anything to keep good employees. Ive never even heard of counter offers at JDA. They are completely out of touch with modern software development so say goodbye to innovation. Upper management loves to talk about innovation and user experience but they don’t enable either to be effective. They are just buzz words.

    Managers are never trained on how to be managers so they typically stink and are difficult to work with. Many are long term employees who are stuck in their ways and are used to how the bad software may work and are not open to making things better. HR enables them to be terrible managers by never reprimanding unacceptable behavior or getting rid of bad managers. Ive seen colleagues bring up issues to HR on the same manager and absolutely nothing happens and employees keep leaving. You do know we all talk, right??

    The only feedback you can give your manager is a survey that has maybe 5 multiple choice questions. Clearly they don’t actually want feedback because that would require them to make changes and be nimble. There's no real career growth and I havent met any manager who truly guide their employees in their career.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is. Get new management in who actually know how to put forth innovative products. Actually listen to feedback from employees. Actually listen to customers, not just when they have issues.
