Great work environment, but moving up is tough
UI Front End Developer (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CASeptember 15, 2015
I loved my managers and colleagues, because they made me excited to come to work every day, even though the work itself was a little rough to take. Everybody is supportive of one another, but the chances for moving up are a little slim and not very fair-- we had no time to build our skills or work on independent projects as customer support representatives. So I felt a little trapped within customer support, which I didn't see myself working in past a year. The benefits were great, though, and I even kind of miss working there.

Great place to try innovative marketing approaches in a B2B space
Director, Customer Marketing (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAFebruary 9, 2015
Great company. Ariba is always trying something new and has a very open work culture. The work culture is very horizontal and collegial. People tend to work in groups and decisions are often done by consensus.

It's a very aggressive and innovative growth company so work hours can get a little off balance. On the other hand, it's very dynamic and exciting.
Pros
great benefits, onsite gym, paid lunches
Cons
can be a little frenetic

Prodcutive and friendly atmosphere.
Facilities Technician (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJanuary 31, 2013
A typical day at Ariba involved daily Facilities/administrative duties.
I learned to take the most from any situation and learn as much as possible.
Management at Ariba was terrific at first. Once position changes happened, the management seemed to get worse.
The hardest part of the job was taking work home with you day in and day out and constantly being held under an microscope.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being the "go to guy" for other employees and basically being the backbone of the company.

Community Content Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAFebruary 7, 2013
There is a lot of opportunity to work from home. The Sunnyvale location has a decent cafe. There is also some games upstairs. Every Friday there is a beer bash. decent gym with towel service.

The down side is that there is hardly anyone there... like ever. So if you like just working alone and only communicating through email go for it.
Pros
gym, cafe, beer bash friday, commuter voucher, games
Cons
ghost town
