    Pros

    Dynamic organization with many opportnuities to develop skills

    Cons

    Growing too fast, need to control the growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should work to deploy more structrure and process to avoid problems with rapid growth and expansion. Better assimilation of new employees into the organization.

    I have been working at Openet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to develop career and learn. Don't have to work long hours that often. You can move between different projects, learning different technologies. Hard work is recognised if you have the right manager.

    Cons

    Leadership seems unclear what direction the company should go in. Management seems to lurch from one crises to the next, dragging developers on to projects to meet impending deadlines. Managers don't plan medium to long term. Features are added without much thought of how they affect the overall product. Good technical staff are leaving and not being replaced or being replaced with entry level engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan better for the long term.

    I worked at Openet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, great team, overall nice place to work at.

    Cons

    Very limited market tends to narrow down your knowledge. Uses a proprietary development language instead of popular languages such as Java, Python, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes the full potential of the employees are not being used. Give them more opportunities to demonstrate value!
