Great Life work balance if you know how.
Most people are great.

Upper management only worries about money.
Superb software lineup that is being underutilized.

Advice to Management

Worry more about the customer base and satisfaction. Listen to the workers and not the money.

    Pros

    Dynamic company with lots of interesting work.
    Growing Company
    Paid well
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Lots of acquisitions.
    Managed acquired companies by financial performance, not potential.
    Remote and acquired offices do not feel like part of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate talent in remote offices and acquisitions and recognize the value to the company.

    I felt Open Text was a great place to work because of my coworkers in my local office. I stayed for a long time because of a sense of family with the people I worked with.

    When we were acquired by Open Text that sense of family was lost. Open Text needs to work to maintain that sense of family in companies they acquire and cultivate those values to make their worldwide staff more dedicated to the company.
