    Pros

    From the beginning to the end (of four years), it was great to be allowed freedom to spread my wings and succeed on my own terms.

    Cons

    As a remote employee, I found it challenging to disengage from the high-pressure firehose of information and projects coming my way. But that was my own fault, for not maintaining balance.

    Advice to Management

    I was very happy with my management team, and I suppose the best advice I could give is to pay attention to what each of the team is contributing, and tailor/recognize their work accordingly.

    Pros

    Unlike many software companies, Open Text has a Big Picture/Long Term view of the market and its offerings, and the treatment of its employees. Many of my peers have been promoted. Open Text provides an excellent work/ life balance for me. I believe that the strategies we have in place for our offerings will greatly benefit our customers and that Open Text actually understands the value of content - all content: documents, records, email, video, faxes, web content and wants to make it all search able and add on on real social networking and collaboration tools to the content - it's very exciting!

    Cons

    It's a big company, and sometimes it's difficult to navigate

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing forward. Our content experts strategy is the way to go.
