Current Employee - Senior Consultant

I have been working at OpenText full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I work in services orgamization and it is one the better Employers I've worked with over the years. Management is helpful and works to actively maintain a proper work/life balance.

Cons

Management is slow to act on important policies and approvals. .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper managment is still old school and thinks iterative waterfall process is the best software process to use! You will often run against roadblocks if you try to do something that is not been in practice for at least last 20 years. I believe the next step for OT can only be achieved by being nimble and incorporating more startup like characteristics.

    I have been working at OpenText full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, diversity of products to work on, management tries to match skills and carrier path with existing possibilities. Great working environment with work life balance.

    Cons

    Long release cycles, some great products in the works, but it takes long to get them out to customers. Average or below average pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline internal processes, we are are process company after all. More transparency from ELT to managers to individual contributors. Keep pushing EIM cloud and investing in high growth products and locales.
