I have been working at OpenText

Pros

Good pay, benefits. Bright and cooperative co-workers, dedicated 'lower' management. Everyone tries hard but the best people seem to leave relatively quickly.

Cons

Disorganized, extremely poor training for VPS, dishonest with clients. Their software is an absolute nightmare to work with, especially with the minimal training you get.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sr. Management is out of touch with the product. The product is out-dated and basically irrelevant. The company is very lucky to still be around.

    Pros

    the potential to make money is always there, provided you don't get caught up with the fact that the company is losing money and market share so fast, you wonder why you are still there.

    Cons

    there is far too much politics involved to comfortably do your job. You have to pick and choose a group of people to side with, and hope they stick with you throughout your job, otherwise, it gets very dirty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i would advise them to understand that they are not their for fat checks, but are there to provide a structured guidance to the team at hand. There is no internal communication and the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. this is management's issue

    Stay away if you are on working visa and if you want to spend a long time (> 3 years) in a company.

    Pros

    ECM market leader, relatively high bonus percentage. flexible working environment.

    Cons

    Discrimination against foreign born workers.
    High turn over of management, 5 different managers in 3 years.
    Lack of career developement and no much recognition of job well done.
    Dismal face time and communication to direct report.
    Pretty much a body shop in the Global Services.
    Senior Management (not top) do not care much about people under them.
    Very bad at keeping valuable people.
    Low base salary compared with market rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A body shop type company is not going to be well off in the long-term, stop being so short-sighted.
