Awful company in all regards

Regional Vice President (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsAs hard as I try to think of some pros, I really can't come up with any.

Cons- no innovation at all
- all products are merely on life support to wring every last maintenance dollar from products that were innovative 10+ years ago
- executive management is terrible
- <10% of sales reps make quota
- turnover is extremely high
- anyone who was good has left (most right after their company was acquired into this mess

Advice to Senior ManagementTry treating your employees with respect, invest of innovation, not maintenance renewals. This is the least customer-friendly organization I've seen in my 25+ year career. 95% of existing customers hate OpenText - they are just stuck on a particular product, and it's too costly to migrate off.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
