    Pros

    There is some good talent there on the Development side. There hasn't been much turnover. The people there are passionate about their work

    Cons

    They do not backfill vacancies.

    Advice to Management

    Push hard to get the backfills for the talent that leaves.

    Pros

    Company has some fantastic products that can help almost every company. Very dedicated group of professionals that enjoy working in the team environment.

    Cons

    New Microfocus management seems to want to manage by fear and intimidation. Actually released one of the highest performers in the company without any concern. Investment in products is lacking. No direction in product management mostly because of lack of investment.

    Advice to Management

    You can't get rid of your top performers and expect to be successful. Microfocus leadership needs to learn you are not selling just widgets

    Pros

    Great company with a vision of how to grow into a much bigger business. Great products and technology which will be leveraged and positioned to succeed. Upper management communicates well and often to the employees. I have worked with many great engineers, support, and sales people. Flexiable work schedule, great benefits, and offices. With the merger with Micro Focus things are looking even better.

    Cons

    Though working from home is allowed, it is discouraged. There is some uncertainity with the Micro Focus merger, but I am optimistic.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move forward with vision and keep delivering great products and rewarding your employees.

  8. Great company, I was with them in the early days and it was exciting to grow the company and go the initial IPO.

    Pros

    Direct involvement with executive team, AppManager was a great product and a no brainer to sell to IT departments. Just get them to agree to an Exchange trial and you would end up with their business.

    Cons

    Integration of 5+ plus companies while I was there was difficult (but also I learned a lot)

    The communication sometimes is missing.

    Pros

    Interesting market that allows you to work with huge enterprise customers. Good benefits and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Management does not invest where necessary. Instead they just want to squeeze every penny they can from their existing product lines.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate our fade into nothingness...

  11. Good people, low pay

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, no overtime. Engineering uses Agile methodologies and tools, great teams. Talented Product Management team.

    Cons

    Most of the engineering jobs have moved offshore, no salary raises over the past several years, a lot of people left the company and their positions were not back filled. No promotions or opportunities for growth. A lot of cost saving measures. Some of the tools are being replaced with cheap or free analogues, like using GroupWise instead of Exchange.The bonus program is tied to the company's profit plan, which shifts a lot of the risk to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the key players from leaving. Invest and grow your business instead of cutting expenses.
