    I worked at Idera Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If your name is Margin, they'll love you. Cause They only thing they love is margins

    Cons

    they bought the company i used to work for. All they talked about was how transparent they are. Then people started being shown the door and no announcements were made. All information was 2nd and 3rd hand. Everyone started fearing for their jobs, and no one at Idera would let them know anything. By far the least transparent company I've worked for. Never interviewed current employees. in the last 5 months,... about 450 years of institutional knowledge was fired or left and Idera couldn't have cared less. They come under the guise of wanting to supercharge the company, and once acquired they gut it to pieces. They have a playbook. The above is their playbook. if you question the playbook, you're fired.

    I have been working at Idera Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The location is not that bad.

    Cons

    No raises for entire company, no 401(k) match, PTO is provided via policy but time off isn’t permitted. Company exist to grow via acquisitions and then to be sold one day. Everyone is expected to work insane hours but only a handful of people reek the benefit of the looming sale.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate whether your leaders know how to lead . Executives that verbally abuse their team do not gain the respect from their team members and consequently are not leaders at all.
