    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.

    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...

    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.

    Cons

    Lack of communication keeping employees on the tract of the overall direction of company future plan

    Advice to Management

    Be open to employees and be willing to listen to all employees for different feedback.

    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.

    I worked at RedPrairie full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For most of us at the Alpharetta office of RedPrairie, we came from the old BlueCube acquisition for the retail solution. That was the perfect merger; RP stayed out of BC's way in terms of retail businesses. And things were great! The people were fantastic and it showed it employee retention and loyalty.

    Cons

    Then the JDA merger came along and while they called it a merger, it was a takeover by JDA. People with fancy titles having no clue what our products did were put in charge and they killed the free enterprise spirit. Development-wise, we were eons ahead and instead of encouraging it, they killed the spirit and dismantled the teams. Bad idea.

    Advice to Management

    Well, in some ways, it's too late. If people weren't laid off, most of the talent walked right out of the door. There are very few people from the old RP days left behind and most of them are new and can't push the product forward anymore.

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

    Pros

    Lots of smart developers around.
    Wide variety of languages and business areas to learn.
    Some respect, since JDA is a software company.

    Cons

    Massive legacy codebases that aren't going anywhere.
    Lots of short term (6mo to year) misdirection, time wasted.
    Culture shift since merger.

    Advice to Management

    Product direction before an entire application is developed should really be a norm. Rewriting apps as soon as you finish them the first time around is not a viable approach to development.

    Pros

    Some really great people work here

    Cons

    There are people that work here that are only out for themselves and will continue to step on top of you to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Open communication would assist the people issues in the company.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Nice people.

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say. This was a good company to work for. They are bought out now by JDA. I left before that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
