JDA Software is the leader in Supply Chain Product Company. The company has grown by acquisition, but has carefully incorporated the essence of all the companies it acquired, so it is still one of the best companies to work for. Now let me directly talk about the Salary. Well, it varies drastically from one role to another. Let me take a step back and talk about the salary given by i2 Technologies (which was acquired by JDA in 2009):
• For Freshers (B.Tech and MCA, it used to give approx 3.5 lakh per annum in the year 2003-2006)
• M.Tech and other post graduates were drawing a salary of 4 lakh per annum
• It also had employee stock option which was later discontinued in 2007, but some amount was added in the salary using Black Scholes Equation.
• The employee used to get hike in the range of 10% to 20% . For consultants, the variable was dependent on billability but most of the folks used to get complete variable pay.
• During the leadership of Michael McGrath the company distributed approx 1000 dollars to every employee in 2005
• During the leadership of Dr. Pallab-Chatterjee, the company made good profit and was listed back in NASDAQ as ITWO. Good hike and bonus was given to the employees in that era. Finally the company was acquired by JDA in 2009

During the acquisition timeframe and recession, the salary was frozen and the company was going through tough times, but later on the salary was normalized and JDA is still one of the good paying employee:
• The product team members are highly paid as they are the core of complex and innovative supply chain products. An experienced candidate with 4 years of experience can demand 12 lakh per annum
• A business consultant with 3 years of experience can fetch around 9 lakh per annum. Sometimes they are paid slightly less but they can make good money if they travel to client location.
• Managed Services COE also pays very well especially if you have prior experience of working on i2 products and if you can support ongoing projects. With 9 years of experience, the candidate may get 19 lakh per annum
• The IT infrastructure ,HR, admin and facilities are also paid well
• The company has good onsite policy. You will be given accommodation in good chain of hotels like Marriot. The per diem is $50 per day but your savings on per diem will be taxable if you do not produce receipts. You can also rent a car in the US.
