I have been working at AudaExplore - a Solera Company full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Working for a Solera company isn't for everyone but for those who seriously want a challenge and to have colleagues that hold them accountable, this is the ticket. Most things are 'good' (compensation, values and beneifts) and some are great (peers and the emphasis on team work and the customer). I personally like the values where you take the 80 and have 20s who are expected not just to keep you from failing but actually succeed in the mission you signed up for.
The changes in the US leadership in the last has resulted in tremendous achievements and exponentially more confidence in the mission and the commitment to our customers. I've worked for ADP and for Solera. They are very different and you cannot mistake one for the other. The last two years have been the most challenging and influential in why I think AudaExplore has the best solutions in the market for customers in the insurance and automotive industries.
I recently had the priviledge saying goodbye to a coworker who was retiring after over 25 years with the company - there's a reason that so many people have chosen to stay after 10,1 5, 20 and 25 years. And when those highly tenured teams work hard to deliver, the organization grows and welcomes new faces to bring fresh perspective and technological insights to the table that breeds more success and growth not only for the top line but for the employees.Cons
It's been very clear the last couple of years that pay increases are tied to success in the country mission. For the typical employee who is delivering on a daily basis, there does need to be a way to keep pace with cost of living. Even though half the workforce has earned pay increases through promotion or being an exceptional performer, many solid performers are left out. Solera should have a cost of living analysis every 2-3 years to address areas where pay may fall out of the competitive range for that location. It's important to note that the first few years after Solera bought CSG from ADP were very difficult for many reasons that are stated (in some cases, over stated) in posts on this site.
Last thing I will say: it would be nice if the company name would stop changing.Advice to ManagementAdvice
-Perform cost of living assessments to ensure compensation keeps pace for the general workforce
-Promote the existence and use of the tuition reimbursement programs so staff will take advantage of that benefit more
-Offer incentives to volunteer and match charitable contributions
-Be consistent in the surveys you ask employees to take, it's been a couple of years since the last one and it would be nice to share our opinions again and get an update on the initiatives management was leading after the last oneRecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at AudaExplore - a Solera Company.Interview Details
Initial communication was pretty quick. Met them at a job fair, and had a pretty good conversion both ways. Schedule for phone interview was made pretty quick, focused mostly on my background. After that, there was a team interview with the team. They mostly asked about experience and some technical questions, but not actual coding. The interviewer promised to send out a response by the end of the week regarding the results and follow up for the next step. Didn't get anything and had to do a follow up myself, which obviously was going to be a rejection. The problem was that a response was promised and never came, even if to say no since the guy promised it. Makes them look bad, couldn't keep their word!Interview Questions

- Nothing really unexpected. They were more interested in my background. I guess that's what they were looking for before going into actual coding tests. Answer Question
