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

    Pros

    I'm seeing a shift in a positive direction related to how the company is working with employees. They have embraced a new intranet (from one of the companies they acquired) and are starting to do more things to engage with employes. It's a good step forward.

    Cons

    The company is growing at a very fast pace, which means that there are some growing pains associated with it. Learnings new systems, new technologies, implementing them across the company. It can take a bit longer to get rolled out at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make fast, agile decisions and find more ways to engage with employees.

    Pros

    they get smart guys from developing countries to work for them

    Cons

    bad model for innovation. using their in house software "workSmart" they monitor the number of key strokes you type and may reduce salary according to hours spent

    Advice to Management

    you have a great money making strategy. You truly use the global economy to your benefit. Decision making is not structured and there is a huge mis-communication between departments. It feels you don't really know what you are doing.

    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.

    I worked at Aurea Software full-time

    Pros

    Maybe Money + Home Office

    Cons

    They dont know what theyre doing. Theyre destroying companies and act totally stupid. As soon as they buy your software, they fire all employees and hire untrained stoff off-shore which are totally lost when they have to work with customers.
    They act totally KPI driven and work with unprofessional employees
    If something wents wrong, they directly fire anyone

    Advice to Management

    Change yourself totally (totally!) and maybe you do a good job

    I have been working at Aurea Software full-time

    Pros

    Work from home policy allows for a flexible schedule as long as you don't mind installing "productivity monitoring" software on your personal computer.

    Cons

    Aurea is not a software company. Aurea is a racket that buys software companies for their intellectual property and their customers to squeeze out as much profit as possible. Acquired companies sustain massive layoffs without any thought to how the acquired company's product or customers will suffer from the resulting brain drain. Full-time employees who are lucky enough to avoid being let go are later forced to leave on their own accord or become contractors without benefits or fair market wages.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in culture and benefits for workers at all levels of your company. Be an actual employer, not a meat grinder. If you treat your employees like garbage, you will be left with nothing but garbage employees.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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