    I have been working at JDA Software part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good mentors, willing to teach you
    - Flexible Hours
    - Open environment, not restrained to a cubicle. Encourages to work in pairs, which is more engaging and get to learn a lot about a variety of things.

    Cons

    - Can be unstructured/unorganized, as an intern I didn't know a lot of the things about their system and technologies that they use. Was expected to ask the right questions and learn on the go. Instead of them training me on how their system works.
    - Although the work is related to Software Engineering, the projects you work on may not always be where you have to sit and code or write a program. A lot of it is dealing with product infrastructure. So expect to document, test, and debug a lot of things.

    Advice to Management

    Would help if interns were given some sort of side projects or knowledge/training which would be engaging and also help us understand how the product works technically.

    I have been working at JDA Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get paid every 15 days

    Cons

    Employees are just at the mercy of employer with no salary or growth unless you are in the inner circle of management. If you happen to be in the middle of migration process, you will taken for a ride. There is no clarity of company financial position as constant lay offs and cost cutting in each and every corner with all perks gone for employee makes difficult to remain motivated.

    Advice to Management

    Respect workers

    could be a great company, just not now

    contrary to what you are being told , in the long run, you are not saving any money by moving jobs offshore to incompetent teams.
