    I have been working at Aurea Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work from Home; that's the only pro I can think of after working there for 2 years. You have the flexibility to work at your own pace.

    Cons

    You may be fired when you wake up tomorrow. No benefits at all, if you're in US they not gonna hire you.

    Advice to Management

    People are forced to work for you especially in poor countries. You are taking complete advantage of this. Provide some kind of job security to your employees; they have family too, like you.

    Pros

    There are no pros. Not one pro at all. The only pro is the p-r-o in the word “prodded” as employees getting cattle prodded in the rear.

    Cons

    Everything is a con. Execs are NOT interested in building anything or creating any value. They are a destroyer of value. Their business model simple: suck out costs and cash to get back their acquisition costs. Goal is to try and convert asset into something that generates more cash to line pockets of execs and capital vs investing in product and customers. And in that process the smartest and best people leave or get laid off.

    It’s all lip service about “customer centric” yet reality is that the operating model is all “executive centric”. Execs simply looking to line their pockets at expense of employees and customers.

    This is not a place for people who love what they do and want to do a great job and help customers to be successful. All Customers should end business relationship immediately or simply not renew. You will get no support, no innovation and most importantly NO expertise will be there to make customers successful.

    Advice to Management

    None. It’s obvious management doesn’t care about people or customers. Part of the value and “secret sauce” of the technology is in the people and expertise. Without people, Aurea is void of knowledge to make customers successfully. C in C level is exactly what it means. C students running an F organization.

    Pros

    You can make some good money if you are from poor countries(poor in terms of exchange value) as you can earn in dollars. You may get to work on challenging things

    Cons

    For last 1 year, I have had 5 managers managing my team and each time a change occurs, Indians and other fellow Asians show their availability 24 hours to be in good books of manager. You will find very less number of western folks here as they either don't stay long or work on their own terms keeping work-life balance. Offlate, mostly Russians are being recruited in all areas, not sure what is the reason behind it. People who want to save job here have to be available literally 16 hours. then you have time tracker capturing everything, gradually employees from European countries manage to get away with tracker saying that it is unethical as per their country laws. For Indians, well who cares. But people are ready n dying to work in such an environment. I worked for 1 year on my own terms.

    Advice to Management

    Get a life.

    Pros

    Remote Work Opportunity is a benefit.

    Cons

    No job security, No vacation, No career growth. You are a part of a team that is willing to get rid of you tomorrow. If you like job security - do not look here.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in, and value your employees. Give opportunities to expand and reward a job well done.

    Pros

    Working remotely
    Some great opportunities and an exciting company to work for

    Cons

    A lot of change and reorganization which is common in the industry but often unsettling. Ended up with an awful manager who was uncommunicative and unapproachable. He didn't respond to emails or messages and was generally very uninspiring and unprofessional. Obviously this is one guy and most teams were awesome to work with but unfortunately, a terrible manager has a very negative affect on a team, morale and ultimately productivity.

    Pros

    Work remotely, being evaluated objectively, great people (windbags are quickly identified by simple KPIs and let go), challenging but rewarding.

    Aurea has absolutely unique approach to software development and management in general. Don't go there if you want a quiet plact to sit still. If you'll manage to understand the way company works - there's a chance you'll love it and won't be able to switch back to normal.

    Cons

    Company looks bad for those who aren't aligned with values, didn't get the point, or don't want to be constantly challenged. Company is too aggressive for weak performers.

    Advice to Management

    No advices here, they know their job very good. Can just wish luck.

    Pros

    I have nothing to share here.

    Cons

    Their policies favors unethical managers that treat you as a slave. Never take it as a full time job.

    Advice to Management

    Change your policies. Treating people as animals have nothing to do with productivity.
