    Pros

    Learned a whole lot from my time at NetIQ, enjoyed working with fellow interns. Senior Management was well organized and respectable. I was also a student so I was able to have flexible hours as well.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great, but better than what I had before and I was able to learn quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend bumping up the pay a bit more, some of the tasks I would imagine a full time employee doing vs an intern

    I have been working at NetIQ full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was good working for NetIQ. We had a good team of professionals. We took ownership of our work,

    Cons

    NetIQ no longer exists. It is Microfocus. We have been torn apparent. Decisions being made by the new team regardless of their little knowledge of the applications, work ethics and environment we have. It is a confused mess.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down!

    I worked at NetIQ full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A very open company, with some great technology and a wide portfolio of solutions. Open to remote workers and flexible schedules.

    Cons

    The company is in a bit of a decline, so opportunities for growth are few, and now that it is owned by a larger company, more cuts can be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employees with the skills and knowledge that have been keeping the company in business. Probably a moot point now, however, in light of the buyout and aggressive cutting by new owners.

    Pros

    Great employees, ambitious and customer oriented

    Cons

    Guidance and vision in the past has been lacking from management. However, I see this changing with Micro Focus.

    Pros

    Steady job - there has not been too much turmoil - other than the regular acquisition layoffs. Decent management - will try to work within the limitations of the organization.

    Cons

    No salary increases for over 5 years. Old technology.Very conservative budget for team building activities. Budget for xmas party is laughable. After all the acquisitions - the whole organization is too big and too many things can slip through the cracks.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get on to the next generation.Please see the trees in addition to the forest.

    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

    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
