Pros

Great products Great people Solid financials A great company to have on your resume if you make it 3+ years One of the most successful public software companies in the last 10 years!

Cons

Senior leaders can be unreasonable and rude. Heavy micromanagement. Very politically charged. Make sure you are in lock step with the brothers.

Advice to Management

You've done an exceptional job hiring and growing middle managers. Give them more authority and ownership in the company.

    Pros

    The people are geniuses there. The environment is such that information sharing between people is great. A great place to learn Small and powerful company that lets you run the show. I have learned so much about all parts of a software company as I participated in the sales to software creation to contracts process The products are well made and well appreciated. The successes will make you look like a hero to the customers

    Cons

    The pay structure looks to be for new engineers. The benefits and promotion cycle is suited to those starting their career. There is a ton of turn over with employees. Nobody leaves and says 'I hated OPNET.' They leave and say 'great opportunities but now I want to take care of my own' For this reason, most people are quite young there, under 35.

    Advice to Management

    The employment model is working. Making it easy to stay a long time will change the model and thus change the company. It produces good results just not long term careers at the company


  2. Ok place to work.
