I worked at Micro Focus

Pros

Enjoyed working with co-workers...The sales team tries very hard to make their numbers.

Cons

Arrogant regional management
Morbid morale
Lack of product knowledge by some managers and lack of knowledge on how to process an order.
Sales Management doesn't communicate well with sales team. They sit in their office all day, within15ft from sales team and never speak to the team. They prefer to email and IM. When they do leave their offices, it's to go outside and have a smoke with each other.
Zero local leadership

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in a current customer and prospect list. Learn the product line, pricing and product migration procedures.

    Pros

    Has a monopoly in their market
    some long term people

    Cons

    Change CEO's every 18 months and then set sail in a different direction
    Outdated products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the board - stop changing CEO's and stop being so worried about each quarters numbers. If you simply picked a direction and stuck with it you would be much further ahead

    I have been working at Micro Focus

    Pros

    Micro Focus has two businesses, the mainframe and the Borland businesses. The mainframe business brings a signifant amount of revenue and because of this, we've been able to reinvest in innovation. The business has a renewed focus on the Borland brand and has created a business unit to manage Borland. This part is exciting because previously the Borland products were a bit neglected. I am happy that we're pushing Borland forward and are making innovation a priority.

    Cons

    Previous mis-steps were a drag - it's getting better now but need to not repeat. Innovation was left in the past and there wasn't an interest in driving forward new technologies - now that the new exec team has made their changes, these cons don't really exist anymore. Obviously, like any other company, Micro Focus has it's share of issues but overall, compared to a year ago, the good outweighs the bad. Micro Focus, for it's customers, is big enough to matter yet small enough to care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a laser focus on people, customers, and vision.
