    Pros

    Knowledgeable personnel with decent longevity, competitive salaries

    Cons

    Merger with Redprairie caused company to go private and many legacy JDA employees have left, CEO lost his position and company now has CEO from Venture Capital firm and focus is much more on Redprairie operational approach rather than legacy JDA. Most growth has been via acquisitions rather than organically and company no longer resembles former JDA as a public company. Job security poor and bonuses are often low or missed altogether. Company has history of regular layoffs, often around holiday periods near end of year

    Advice to Management

    Probably should change name to RedPrairie since that is the mode of operation today. Need to provide better job security, corporate loyalty for legacy employees of JDA is poor.
