    Pros

    We have a gym in the office, daily snacks, a clean workplace and the employees and management really care about each other almost like family.

    Recently there have been new managers brought in who are passionate about what they do and building a better, high-performance culture. If you like change it is an exciting time to work here.

    This company is a great one to work for if you are new in your career and want to gain experience for a new role outside of the company a couple years down the road. Failure is viewed as a learning opportunity here as opposed to a detriment to success as long as you implement feedback and learn from it.

    Cons

    This company is going through a culture shift from one that tolerated poor performance and no accountability to one that holds people accountable. That can be difficult for employees to handle.

    The parent company does not support Audatex with the resources they need to deliver on promised outputs. If a position is vacated due to termination or resignation there is no guarantee that it be back-filled in a reasonable amount of time or even at all, which then requires those left behind to do double or triple the work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to try to make your business an "employer of choice" by building a high performance culture.

    Pros

    Great co-workers,& a couple of upper management were good.Lots of knowledge from senior reps

    Cons

    Loved my job before they did a full management switch, the office used to all get along but then they pretty much pushed senior supervisors & leads for specialty causing a major downgrade in moral. They brought in a # pusher that hadn't ever performed the actual job before. And everything stated going downhill. I was always a top performer for 7 1/2 years, then suddenly found myself at bottom of barrell. Always had great reviews. Had to deal with a family emergency & my numbers went down slightly and I found myself with write ups & out the door in a matter of weeks.

    Advice to Management

    You should have left things as they were. We had good company morale,our customers loved us then you things changed.

    Pros

    Work life balance is pretty good. Benefits are decent. Opportunity exists to learn new processes.

    Cons

    Executive Management is egregiously greedy, unethical, immoral. Very little communication. Running company into the ground. Zero raises. No reward for overperforming. No HR reviews. Toxic work environment. Do not accept a position at this company.

    Advice to Management

    There are no managers that care to even hear constructive criticism. They will continue to drink the CEO's cool aid in Jackson Hole until they have bled the company dry.

    Office environment is great, family oriented, everyone gets along. Very casual and relaxed.

    Benefits are terrible, upper management is never around, corporate people say they're making an effort to be around more but have yet to prove those words true.

    Continue to do the fun and small things to improve office morale. Employee engagement is important.

    I worked at AudaExplore - a Solera Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team spirit in many departments.
    Fun activities such as summer and winter events created to boost morale.
    Mission statements that hit home.
    Open door policy for HR.

    Cons

    Some workers get treated unfairly compared to others. For example, giving someone a written warning for being outside for 5 minutes when not on their lunch is really nothing when compared to a person who literally is away from their desk for an entire 3rd of their working day walking to get their step totals higher.

    Poor inter-departmental communication.
    Horrible benefits since the company was sold around a year ago.
    Firing people without offering them help and keeping on those that do very little to contribute or those that just sit around chatting all day.
    No training offered whatsoever when I started 2 years ago and then you get warnings for making mistakes without being offered help to correct them.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to the people that make the money for you and give them better benefits, better training, better wages and bonuses to keep them around plus give them avenues to get promoted from within and prospects for the future. There are people there who have not had raises in over 10 years, not even in line with the cost of living. That's poor treatment of those that work very hard. You have some great talent there, reward them.

    Cons

    I would still be working for the company if they did not move to Utah.
