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

    Pros

    I'd say this job is for someone who doesn't mind getting thrown into things and who likes to work. If you want a work life balance then I wouldn't recommend this job.

    Great salary for someone coming right out of college
    Get to travel
    Pretty laid back managers
    Get to work from home sometimes
    Company events (whenever they have them)

    Cons

    Long work hours (Depends on what dept or project your on)
    Not a good work life balance.
    Calls with different team members overseas (Taking calls in the middle of the night)
    Travelling can wear you out
    Dealing with customers and giving up your life to help them
    The Work environment in general was alright.

    Advice to Management

    Laying off your employees without prior notice kind of sucked

    Pros

    You get a lot of client-facing time at an entry level position. Not to mention getting exposure to different industries.

    Traveling/Points/Flexing trips to other cities on the weekend. Typical consulting perks.

    Cons

    Poor onboarding resources - such as documentation or proper introductory courses. Your experience at the company really depends on which project you are assigned to starting out and whether or not the experienced resources on your team are helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on giving senior employees more incentive to stay instead of hiring new employees by the numbers. Seasoned employees are astronomically more valuable and management seems to have a hard time seeing that.

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

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the new tech that is coming out and the office is in a location where traffic is not as bad as midtown.

    Cons

    No working from home outside of emergencies. A lot of your team will be offshore and not working at the same time as you, so collaboration is very difficult. Everything you work on has to be reviewed by senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Give people some flexibility and allow them room to shine.

    "No more life"

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

    Pros

    - People at the company are sometimes cool
    - Lots of exposure to the business and different companies

    Cons

    - You may start slow,but you are guaranteed to work 70+ hour weeks minimum once you reach a certain level of seniority. I have worked these hours for over a year now with no end in sight. Management flatly denies the existence of a work-life balance problem despite it being the main and persistent complaint at the company for nearly a decade. A lot of employees here have their job tied to their work visa so they are "trapped" to work here. That drives the mentality that exists there that work == life and there is never any compromise.
    - Travel will exceed amount in your job description and you will get very little notice, sometimes a few hours notice that you will be on a plane
    - The company works very inefficiently. For Analysts, there is no onboarding, training, nor product documentation. It is every man for himself.It is very hard to get better at your job because the only way to get any information is from more experienced peers - if they are busy, that's all there is.
    - Project Managers just say "yes" always and have no concern for making a reasonable timeline or "protecting their guys". Culture of Project Management is atrocious and insulting. All PMs/Directors leave the building by ~3 PM each day whereas lower positions work all day, work all night, every night, every weekend because of PM inability to control the project.
    - Most people are lied to about what their job will be. Consultants? No - software tester. Software Analyst? No - software tester/log-reader/triage to development team (usually offshore). You will not develop strong skills that can translate to other jobs and as an Analyst you WILL NOT write hardly any code at all. That makes it very hard to leave after you have multiple years of not being a developer, yet you hold a computer science degree. It is better to just not join than get trapped.

    Advice to Management

    Can't say much - this is how MANH runs. At the absolute expense of the well-being of every non-senior-management employee. New hires are deceived on what their job will be, then entrapped as their transferrable skills decay. There is absolutely no reason to stay unless you are soon eyeing senior management (perhaps as an experienced hire - as management you can do a lot less). At an entry-level position it is both personal and career suicide to join the company.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and be willing to accept the issues brought forward as opposed to creating a different reality.
