I worked at Solera Holdings full-time

Pros

Compensation package is competitive Opportunity to travel and relocate Opportunity to learn new things and be challenged CEO is a great person

Cons

Absolutely no work/life balance (after hours and weekend work is expected) Unrealistic expectations (e.g., Management asks you to complete a 3 hour project in 30 minutes with no mistakes..and nobody has time to review your work...good luck) Management would rather replace employees than address the issues

Advice to Management

Pay lower salaries and hire more people to spread out the workload and allow employees to truly disconnect (especially on weekends). Learn to truly prioritize demands - everything is NOT critical/urgent

    Pros

    For now, there aren't a lot of good reasons to work for Solera. There is a generally good team of software and test engineers. There are a few good teams to work for if you're lucky enough to get hired into them.

    Cons

    Long unpredictable hours and regular night work detract from the work environment. Management has made the decision to close down most of the San Ramon technical center and move to cheaper labor in San Diego and Mexico. This has resulted in a lot of engineers losing their jobs. Many engineers were told how valued they were in a group meeting, but were not offered to relocate to San Diego. With the "San Diego" decision, there has been a fairly quick brain drain and a loss of many key engineers. So the working environment has deteriorated to the point where morale is very low, and I think most people in San Ramon at least, are trying to find greener pastures.

    Advice to Management

    Despite what you communicate, it really doesn't seem like you value your employees too much. The fact that you are willing to lose so many engineers shows that management is a little out of touch.

    I have been working at Solera Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities to obtain new roles / challenges. It's a company that is not set in its ways and is willing to invest and do new things.

    Cons

    A bit chaotic at times. Can be difficult for people that don't like rapid change and many org changes. Raises don't happen often
