Idera tries to create a fun work envirnoment.
Key Account Manager (Current Employee), Houston, TXJanuary 7, 2013
Pros: daily sales contests, good benefits package, & nice workspaces.
Cons: new management
New management has cancelled all travel by sales people, and decided that Marketing can better handle meeting customers and prospects at shows and training sessions. Everything is now metric driven, which fails to account for handling customer problems and technical issues.

Co-workers are great people, but new environment is taking its toll on enthusiasm. Meeting the new call metrics on a daily basis is starting to cause a lot of complaints. Idera has a lot of little contests to encourage performance with small cash payouts which does keep sales people interested.

Idera is company in trouble, with an outdated products, attempting to grow without any real direction and lacking good leadership on all levels
Territory Account Manager (Former Employee), HoustonNovember 3, 2012
Pros: fair base, used to have sales contest with spiffs before the last vp left
Cons: bad management, micro- management, over-priced solutions in a saturated market, bad marketing department, a lot company politics
Idera is a MS partner that sells Windows DB solutions, which are overpriced for the market, and the company lacks good leadership from all levels. A new VP came on board from BMC, who has no experience in the DB market and is trying to run a company with less than 200 employees the same as BMC is run which has over 5,000 employees. He has no idea how to effectively bring positive change to Idera and only knows the things he learned at BMC software which is not going to work at Idera. Beside the VP , the rest of the sales managers are incompetent, and lazy. None of them have any managerial experience and have been promoted by the mere fact of being there at the right time and have hit quota by having a lush territory. None of them bring any real leadership or sales expertise to the table. Additionally the solutions are over -priced and the SQL market is saturated, and to make things worse, the Idera marketing department is one of the laziest and most unorganized departments that I've ever seen
