  1. "RedPrairie used to be wonderful, prior to JDA merger"

    I worked at RedPrairie full-time

    Pros

    I loved RedPrairie. I had great co-workers: smart, passionate, loyal and supportive - most had been there 10 years+, surviving several mergers. Until JDA.

    I was happy with my office environment, my expenses were promptly reimbursed, my boss was brilliant and fair and as a whole, the company was well run. Some reviewers mentioned developers having to create features already promised by the sales force, but that's not unusual; yes, we worked long hours, and traveled a great deal, but that is the nature of the Professional Services industry. I feel we were compensated well and we were able to work from home at times. I've seen way worse!

    Cons

    Sadly, JDA bought RedPrairie in 2012. About half the employees in my office were cut before the purchase was even announced, many of whom were the backbone of this company. Instead of retraining or restructuring dedicated workers with long-term, established client relationships, JDA cut everyone loose. The handful that they kept were all gone within a few months.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know what could be done now, except to hire back some of those RedPrairie employees. JDA has alienated people with one of the worst mergers ever, but RedPrairie clients are incredibly loyal folk, so who knows.

    Pros

    Great people and awesome work environment. Loved coming to work every day.

    Cons

    Once RedPraire was merged with JDA things went straight downhill. One of the worst work environments ever.

    Pros

    The pay was good. Gained good Microsoft office experience, outside of that not much meat to their intern program.

    Cons

    Manager was not the strongest and very little culture was present that made it worthwhile to stick around. When I left a much better manager was in place and they were acquired. Could be much better now...

    Pros

    The regular employees are nice and try to help you

    Cons

    management keep making changes with teams, locations, assignment. That keeps the pressure unnecessarily high.

    Advice to Management

    Make plans for the next 2-3 years and stop making changes all the time.

    I worked at RedPrairie (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employer did implement various policies for employees with the purpose of stabilizing employees movement after recent merger.

    I worked at RedPrairie full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working with everyone. Great work and life balance. Worked really hard and long hours due to the small teams at the time, but the work we produced was something to be proud of.

    Cons

    Small teams, pay a little below average for the responsibilities asked of you. Hard to make moves up the ladder, slow at promoting.

    Pros

    The team and leadership were solid. Very collaborative environment that permitted and embraced ideas and inputs to a prospect's business problem ... leading to improved product development

    Cons

    Product development was under capitalized when contrast with the objectives set forth by the leadership team to take on Manhattan.

    Advice to Management

    I hear much better things about the direction the current management is taking the company. The vibe on the street is much better, and you have a better CEO
    Be clear who you want to be and how that vision will get funded

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

    Pros

    Customers of RedPrairie aka JDA that I expereinced of JDA were great to work as were most employees. Benefits were good and expenses were promptly paid.

    Cons

    I'm not familiar with the current testing or sales team practices of JDA. When I worked for RedPraire the sales team sold smoke and mirrors by promising the customer features that were not available in the solution. As part of the project team, we had to go in and tell the customer what was and what was not a working feature. Additionally, QA was a loosely used term.

    Advice to Management

    A business based on a solid product will earn more loyal customers and increase revenue. Look at Mac compared to all the other Intel based products.
