    I have been working at OpenText full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many smart and helpful people work here. If you are in Services, Development, Q&A and other technical areas it is very exciting. OT has been around for over 20 years and continues to grow. It always surprises the folks who love to undervalue it. I believe many of the former sales people have posted negative comments because they were forced to work for their revenue.

    Cons

    There have been layoffs through acquisitions. Some managers are incompetent or neutral. "Communication" within departments is sometimes really lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that when Marketing changes the names of products so frequently, and when we buy companies so often, most employees have no idea what the majority of our software actually does. And going to our website doesn't help much.

    Pros

    Everyone I have had the opportunity to work with has been a pleasure. The work environment is one of the best I have experienced. The company outlook is great and it is known from the top down that the employees are the reason for that.

    Cons

    The is a lot of change and at times, it can be frustrating and bring on feelings of uneasiness. I don't always feel like the opinions of the front line employees are taken into consideration a the top level.
