I have been working at OpenText full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great work and life balance. Great talented people to work with.

Cons

Communication from high level management is hard to map to regular day to day task at low level. No increments or bonus - stuck with initial salary till next promotion ( which could be indefinite ). Average or below average pay and benefits. Employee feedbacks are rarely accepted. Little room for growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employee issues and bring everything to industry standard / average.

    Pros

    Nearly all of the pros have been taken away now.

    Cons

    If you prefer mindless admin work instead of actually selling, go join OpenText!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move away from weak spread sheet management with no values apart from protecting their own salary, learn to speak up and explain that what works in the US and Canada does not work in Europe. Don't be afraid of the big bad wolf!
