    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Idera Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great co-workers... and fun environment at times

    Cons

    They are a buy and gut shop... they buy up software companies... eliminate 80% of work force and expenses... off-shore all R&D work on a fixed cost model and ride out out the revenue stream as long as they can... eventually the off-shore fixed cost model will drastically affect the quality of the product they are working on... by exec team isn't interesting in preserving quality... its strictly a numbers game...... cut expenses as low as possible as fast as possible... and ride out the high margins for as long as they can until they can eventually just end-of-life the product... Great for investment purposes... sucks if you are a developer that takes pride in the products you build

    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.
