    Current Employee - Director, Product Development in Gaithersburg, MD

    I have been working at OpenText full-time (more than 10 years)


    Company seems sincere to be employee friendly and do show they care. Good recognition programs and their culture seems to be entrepreneurial. Work-life balance is good. technology stack is exiting and I think is well positioned for the future


    Career growth may be limited, OpenText is composed of many small acquisitions and most location are too small to offer localized career growth. Salaries in my opinion seem to lag its peers in my region. Very cost conscious company, almost to an extreme. Almost no money is spent of employee development. Extremely hierarchical and almost everything required CEO approval

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more localize budgetary and approval control to Directors so that they can be more nimble and have more flexibility to meet their goals.

    Positive Outlook
