    I worked at Auralog full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work, advancement opportunities. The office is small enough that even though people are on different teams everyone is still close.

    Cons

    Changes are drastic and to quick. Not all the software is on the same level so it can be hard to sell some languages

    Advice to Management

    Not alot of advice. I started here as a receptionist and worked my way up. It was a great experience.

    Pros

    Not to many pros to speak of to be honest aside from my friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Telesales department is poorly managed. There is a basic misconception of how sales works. it's not a numbers game if the market and telesalesman don't speak the same language. I recommended that the department hire a Dutch speaking salesman for the Dutch market as prospects on the phone barely spoke English. Management's response was to ignore that and continue insisting on calling 100-150 Dutch businesses using English telesales personnel generating ZERO results.

    Advice to Management

    No more advice to give. No one there is listening.

    I have been working at Auralog full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with and a great way to learn about the K-16 market. Decent product at best.

    Cons

    Extremely narrow minded people at the top running the show. You have zero voice. Typical European leadership where you have to ask multiple times before any consideration is given to you ideas or project. Leadership has old sales methodologies that can not be put into common daily practice now or they have zero actual sales experience. For the aspects of their product that do not work they refuse to take ownership and responsibility of it and blame sales or the customer for the issues. Never consistent... make up your own prices!

    Advice to Management

    This will go no where since neither has the company in the last few years... get a clue... get rid of the management there and focus on your sales people, the true professionals that the relationships are built with.

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

    Pros

    The only good things I can say about this company are that they offer a competitive base salary for their sales people ($40K/year) and that the health benefits are good.

    Cons

    The base salary is good, but it is almost impossible to earn commission. Although TellMeMore (their product) is a good program it does not meet the needs of the target customers. Management consistently ignores input from the sales staff to improve the product. Next, you are treated like a recent college grad no matter what you experience level. They have a sales system that doesn't work (ie. minimum amount of calls etc). The only ones that succeed are the ones that have found a way to make it look like they are following the system when they are not. Managment is unbearable. I have never been treated so poorly in all my 16+ years of doing technology sales. They watch your every move and consistently belittle you. There is constant turnover due to the poor treatment of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the input from your sales people. They are the ones that have direct interaction with your customers. Treat your employees with the respect that they deserve.

    Strictly vertical and KGBesque communications from management

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to listen to feedback from your employees

    Pros

    Good Benefits with regular working hours.
    Flexible PTO time off.
    Interesting market and feeling to build business.
    To Participate to Language Learning Education

    Cons

    Too metrics driven, Sometmes too many directives
    Some folks are negative and pull others down.
    Don't be afraid voicing your opinion, just say things politely and you will be listen to.
