    Pros

    Not much....co-workers were generally good to work with. Health benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Everything is pretty much a con with this company from no reviews, no salary increases, horrible management, leads through intimidation, doesn't value veteran employees or their knowledge, the list goes on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourself and but your big boy pants on and value your employees instead of being so egotistical and narcissistic.

    Pros

    Building friendships with some co-workers

    Cons

    No communication and lack of training is terrible. No room to grow or promote, the duties of 2 or 3 people are piled onto one person, stretching multiple departments thin. New managers & sales reps are poorly trained, if not at all, and they rely on others to answer questions, if the source of training was fixed there wouldn't be so many issues. Also corporate made a huge mistake closing down the location that houses all veteran employees, you cannot replace all of that knowledge that every person obtained over the years working here.

    Advice to Management

    You need to work on communication, figure out who actually does what tasks/duties on each department instead of mindlessly emailing a bunch of people until you find one person to answer your request. The lack of communication and training is terrible.

    Pros

    you will have a paycheck for a while

    Cons

    They own Audatex and many other companies. The only reason Solera is founded and moved offices to TX was to make the CEO and his friends rich. So many to share. The CEO is all about making himself and his friends rich....at the expense of the employees. They have a long history of cutting budgets, staff, resources, pay and bonuses. It's happened many times where bonuses were promised but not paid, always finding some excuse or non-qualifier, all while the CEO buys another Lamborghini or expensive ranch in Jackson, WY. Salesforce has been slashed over the years despite reaching and exceeding sales quotas. All other departments have been affected as well. They have a long history of M&A's all to boost C level pay and again have excuses to trim down staff and products. The culture has suffered immensely leading to leads, supervisors and managers that will not stick up for employees all for fear of losing their own jobs for speaking up. They have also numerous times laid off staff only to realize that they can't fill the position with qualified or knowledgeable people, so they go back to their ex-employees and offer then jobs at reduced pay and benefits. If you end up working here, it's your own fault

    I have been working at Solera Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch 3 days a week, free breakfast 2 days a week, free drinks, and free gym membership.

    Cons

    Raise your hands if you have experienced any of the following at your current or former workplace:
    1. Managers who threaten bodily harm to their employees for not meeting expectations
    2. Religion and religious beliefs are openly discussed and ridiculed
    3. Foul language is not only practiced but encouraged
    4. Management has an owner-slave mentality and thinks they own you
    5. You are at the company's beck and call 24/7
    If that's your kind of workplace look no further as Solera is the place for you. The list above is just a small window into the abuse that employees endure on a day to day basis. No amount of free food can make up for the toxicity of the workplace and the sad part is that this culture is celebrated for being "uncommon". BTW, do not believe the positive reviews posted as the CEO had conducted a town-hall meeting and "commanded" the employees to write favorable reviews on Glassdoor while watching over their shoulders. As for me, I am spending every minute trying to find a new job and leave this hell hole behind. I hope this review helps.

    Advice to Management

    None as the negative tone is set by the Executive team and you cannot teach an old dog new tricks

    I worked at Solera Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Immediate work team was very cohesive

    Cons

    Management by fear and chaos; intense leadership and HR attrition; pay increases only awarded to 10% of employees...coincidentally all the CEO's direct reports, so be it; those hired with bonus and equity potential lost them without replacement when the company went private and the company didn't address it (>30% pay cut for those affected); no training department and no support for ongoing professional development; no focus on building a diverse workforce; executives publicly demean employees and gloat that it will discourage others from disagreeing with them; investment in client-facing products has been extremely limited, while HQ has been redesigned and redecorated multiple times at great expense. If the CEO could run the company without employees, he would because he has so little respect for them or their contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Take a moment to consider that you would be nothing and would accomplish nothing without people. Work on the culture based on what people have been telling you through the surveys you don't publish.
