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

    Pros

    I have been at Soleo for just under a year and I find the job challenging and fulfilling. I feel free to offer solutions for improvement and actually make changes. This is an ever-changing environment and often there does need to be structuring or regrouping – we have to find out what works! Agile methods means working with those challenges and being flexible. If you want success, you have to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

    Cons

    There are still a lot of employees that are set in their ways and typically, people do not like change. We search for new hires that want to bring innovative ideas and instigate a positive culture.

    Advice to Management

    Stay consistent and transparent – trust is earned; not sold.

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

    Pros

    Company has transformed a legacy product set in a declining market into a growth business in the ad tech space. Lots of opportunity to lead and influence the future direction of the business. Management is open to new ideas and makes investments in new technology and new talent. CEO has a good vision to build a product set that keeps the pace with changing technology and markets, while staying true to core expertise in search, data and telephony. Culture is friendly and team oriented. Personally have experienced career growth and seen others do the same. Successful achievement of company objectives has resulted in consistent pay raises and bonuses over the past few years.

    Cons

    Environment is fast-paced, need to move fast to keep up. Not a place for those who want to stick to the status quo.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, change can be difficult but the successful growth of the business shows why its important.

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

    Pros

    With so few engineers and such bad retention Soleo cannot afford to lose any. Engineers can get away with little or no work with no repercussions. If you have a hobby or side project that you want to do at work, do it here. No one cares.

    Cons

    Senior management is out of touch with reality. The constant re-organization is very damaging. In 2014, there have been 4 re-orgs. Additionally, several of the executives can be very abusive and coercive in their day to day business. Many days people go into work walking on eggshells. There have been no systematic raises in several years. It's just not worth it to work in such a place.

    Advice to Management

    Let your friends go. They are stealing from you and from the company.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, but.....watch your back

    Cons

    Re-organizations every 4-5 months. Very disorganized and highly unstable company. Severe lack of communications. Sr management displays a lot of anger. Can be a hostile environment at times. No incentive or opportunity for advancement. Not able to get information to complete job duties timely. Company does provide a long term future.

    Advice to Management

    Sr management needs to be replaced/ Why can't the board intervene. Are they blind?

    Pros

    It's a great place to learn how a company shouldn't operate. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit and aren't bothered by ethics, honesty, or quality, then you might find the place interesting.

    Cons

    The CEO is a bully that encourages a hostile workplace. Most of the executive staff spends their day shielding their employees and performing damage control. You will never be trusted to make a decision, There is no plan for longevity or sustainability. Most of the staff is from the old telecom world, and ill-equipped for today's technology. Poor performance is overlooked. Friends seem to hang on indefinitely, even when caught stealing money from co-worker's purses. The company lawyer spends most of her time coming to settlements with former employees. The Board of Directors provide no oversight.

    Advice to Management

    With layoffs occurring every few months, all energy is being put into controlling expenses and no effort is put into giving current employees a reason to be there.

    Pros

    Fellow coworkers are very friendly and nice. The company has a very relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    Management is disorganized and unfriendly. They do not respect the people who work for them. Raises and growth is nonexistent. A re-org every 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Need to take a couple of management classes to learn how to be professional and treat fellow workers with respect.

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

    Pros

    There are too few pros to mention?

    Cons

    Ft. Lauderdale office has hardly anyone left, and is constantly screaming at each other. Hardly fun. They fight against new ideas, stomp on innovation, and yet the executives are mystified about the lack of innovation. Their most talented developers are long gone, and I see no future left for me here.

    Advice to Management

    Next time you buy a talented company, find out who generates the value and give them a reason to stay. Then you won't find out too late that your flagship database product 's developer should never have been given a reason to leave, and the rest of us would have a much brighter future here.
