    I worked at Aurea Software full-time

    Pros

    Truly none that I can think of. They are so out of step with most other businesses and don't even know it.

    Cons

    You will have to go along way to find a company which values its staff as low as this crowd. Stories of 10 minute snapshots of remote workers screens and a photograph of the employee sitting at their screen are absolutely true. Additionally they track workers intensity, in other words how much effort they are putting on their keyboard. Miss their goals and the manager gets to know about it immediately.

    They are buying companies at a phenomenal rate, seeking 50% a increase each year by taking the products, sacking the staff or making them work from home, closing the offices as part of a huge restructuring as soon as they take over, having not revealed their plans before purchasing companies. They are bottom feeders, looking for software companies on their knees. If you're thinking of working with them, or selling your company to them, just don't do it as you will regret it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff with more respect, unless you feel that they are totally expendable in your drive for your growth targets.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aurea Software in November 2017.

    Interview

    Process goes through company recruitment platform Crossover.com. Web interview with video scheduled after online competency test (role specific).
    3 separate video interviews in relatively quick succession
    Online platform pretty slick (which is also the case later as an Aurea employee hiring through said platform).
    Offer is then extended exactly at the advertised rate as you see in crossover. There are 0 benefits, bonuses, etc - this is pure contract based on hourly rate.

    Interview Questions

    • Working with remote teams (as the company aims to hire 100% remote workers using US contractor contract)   Answer Question
    • Moving fast - how to integrate acquired companies at record pace   Answer Question
