    I have been working at OpenText full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent culture in Canada ,,decent benefits

    Cons

    Becoming a mini CA focused more on renewal revenue than new license revenue

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the field. New license growth should be where you focus not on renewals.

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

    Pros

    Completely virtual work environment and if you thrive in an environment where you can be anonymous, then this works well.

    Cons

    Management has not gotten the sales organization into the same room for more than 18 months. The relationships between technical pre-sales and the sales organization is dead. High turn-over leads to constant re-training. The products are aging and sales cycles are long.

    Advice to Management

    Bring people together, build relationships and stop trying to do everything virtual. Fix your support system and give people help to win big opportunities instead of leaving them on an island to fend for themselves.
