Former Employee - N/A in Lisle, IL

I worked at Aldera full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great people--learn a lot--originally was a positive work environment

Cons

Management changes has made company top heavy. Work loads off the charts. No balance between personal time and work. With at least one management employee, personal feelings made obvious and drove good employees from the company. Some in management got their jobs by holding company's feet to the fire, not because they deserved them. Also pay was low for IT workers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a grip on who the (remaining) employees are who do the work--listen to their suggestions--and get more people in to do the work. Don't oversell the product and agree to ridiculous timelines. If you continue to work the employees to death, they will eventually leave.

    I worked at Aldera full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely Zero. Now I know what to look for in a company that I don't want to work for. I wish I left the company sooner.

    Cons

    Where to begin. The company treats it's employees like they are worthless. They under pay all of their employees and hand out bonuses to the upper managment who do nothing. They have more VP's and Executives than actual employees which does not make any sense at all. They overload their employees with work and don't compensate for their hard work. Many good people have been driven away from this company because they run the company like a Dictatorship. Also, they are not up to date with their technology and you will not have marketable skills if you work here and leave for another position. There are many other better companies to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your heads out of your asses and mimic how successful companies run. Treat your employees better and not like worthless dogs. This company is doomed for failure unless it drastically changes.

    Pros

    None really. Some intelligent Co-Workers.

    Cons

    Below average salary and compensation. Work/Life balance is non-existant. You are expected to work long hours and not be compensated for it. No internal promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to take some type of management classes. No idea what they are doing.
