    I worked at Manhattan Associates full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    1. Manhattan Associates have high profile retail clients and its WMS software is the best out there.
    2. Is very likely you may find yourself in very difficult situations that will make get the best out of yourself
    3. They are always improving their software, so you will be working with the best functionalities in the market
    4. Manhattan tries to position themselves as a supply chain leader, and are developing other systems to follow that strategy, so you can have exposure to other systems not only WMS

    Cons

    1. Manhattan Associates does not have a long term career path, when you are working there is like being on a jungle, most of the time you are by yourself facing the client and supporting client critical operations 24/7, many employees that can not stand the pressure just end up leaving the company.
    2. Their software is in constant development to introduce bug fixes or new functionalities, however that means things breaking often, and if you break a live operation that means project teams find themselves fixing critical issues and working long hours frequently.
    3. They say they are global, however they are US centric, if you join them because you think you can travel abroad you may find that good resources stay in US, Manhattan relies on good consultants, so is not likely their managers let them go.
    4. Manhattan does not make a good job ensuring all their employees get a fair treatment, due that there is a lot of time on the road and you have 2 supervisors, one the project managers and the other your administrative manager and both are always overloaded, you may find in a situation you don´t have a mentor or someone that look out for you. If you have a bad manager, there are not good Human Resources procedures to avoid you are not treated fairly

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to create more leaders instead of just bosses. The type of systems implemented are very critical, you need to have more leaders to inspire and motivate your teams and have a company culture that looks out for the well being and work life balance of all employees not only to get the job done with the less resources.

    Pros

    Exciting fast passed work environment. You get to work with really smart peers and support the backbone of commerce in the US. Supply chain is an exciting business and you work with the top companies in the world.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel. While the travel can be fun it is intense and it is not always to exciting places. The pay at MA is not where it should be for a company that requires so much travel.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the the pay levels and you can retain employees for the long term.

    Pros

    Very Intellectual Employee Base, Setting the New Standards in the Industry, Plenty of Work to go Around, Plenty of Room for Advancement in first 5-7 years.

    Cons

    Company is so successful in the industry they have a backlog of work, and a shortage of people to do it. Hard to replace the needed skill sets quickly, but they are trying.

    Advice to Management

    Business strategy execution is almost flawless, a simple verbal "thank you" is worth more than you think, and it doesn't cost you anything (except a little humility).
