I worked at Openet

Pros

Cutting edge stuff being developed there
There is potential to develop your career there if you are so inclined.
There is education funding

Cons

Staff work long hours and under pressure
Unfriendly atmosphere. Corporate culture is a bit rude.
Internal support departments are incompetent.
Office is very cramped.
Toilets are dirty.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

IT support and facilities management need to improve.
Try to recruit staff from more than one college. Most of the staff are from one college and the culture is vvey homogenous as a result.

    I worked at Openet full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot working at Openet and worked with some very sharp people. The benefits were pretty good, and at first the atmosphere was great.

    Work-life balance was hit-or-miss. There were times when it was pretty good, but also a lot of get-it-done-yesterday fire drills. Not unusual for a small technology company with huge telecom clients, I think.

    Overall my experience was positive, but I wouldn't go back there now.

    Cons

    Openet seems to be losing its touch. It grew very rapidly for a few years, but over the last year or so seems to be shrinking just as rapidly. Openet has some very compelling products, but doesn't seem to be able to focus on really polishing them and moving them forward.

    The company seemed quite management-heavy toward the end of my time there.

    I worked at Openet

    Pros

    Was able to work from home easily. Most people were friendly and good to work with.

    Cons

    Management does not have a strong consistent plan. More like 2 or 3 plans a year. Management is not held accountable, as when they fail in their job, they just move to another role. Product development has not been given enough direction and nothing new has taken the place of older products. Also, pay is poor and bonuses never happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold yourselves accountable.
