    I have been working at Solera Holdings full-time

    Pros

    The best thing about Solera is that the entire organization is interconnected allowing for overlap around the world for those willing to raise their hands. Different employees have different missions; which allows for personal and professional development and exploratory research in areas outside of their comfort zone. During my tenure, I have seen employees move into roles they are not qualified for and succeed due to personal fortitude and dedication.

    Cons

    The most difficult thing is to explain the mystery of Solera. While it is a unique culture, there are elements some put through their personal filter to understand, only to create stories of confusion. What I have found is that the personal struggles and stories linked to the “cons” category, become a “Pro” when sidestepping my filter and understanding company leadership and the greater picture. Hours can be long, meetings can get loud and work can pile up; however, there are few companies where the most beautiful thing is your coworkers helping you to get through difficult times.

    Advice to Management

    For anyone who manages someone, remember, there are multiple paths you and your directs can go by, but in the long run, there is still time to change the road you’re on. Encourage employees to raise their hands, challenge the drills, challenge you, step outside of your comfort zone and listen to the subtle clues employees are whispering. They may be silently screaming for help, change or development. Sidestep your filter to identify ways to make Solera better, never be satisfied with where you (we) are today – Become the great leader you can be.

    Hadoop Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Solera Holdings (Dallas, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview Process went fine but I had to deal with TERRIBLE HR. I didn't receive even a single call on scheduled time, always late by 20-30 Mins. The worst part is I'm still not yet reimbursed for my expenses even after a month which provoked me to write this review, even worse HR is not responding to any of my emails. I'm very glad that I didn't get this opportunity. Hope everyone considers this review before they take up call with the company.
