    I have been working at Openet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is definitely growing. Opportunites are definitely available for Software developers and testers.

    Cons

    There may be an inner circle. I'm sure every company has one.

    Pros

    Dynamic organization with many opportnuities to develop skills

    Cons

    Growing too fast, need to control the growth

    Advice to Management

    Should work to deploy more structrure and process to avoid problems with rapid growth and expansion. Better assimilation of new employees into the organization.

    I worked at Openet as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Technologies and language used: Linux, shell, C++. Very friendly environment, with where you can ask anyone about help and if they have time they will help you.

    Cons

    Working on a side project, not integrated to a team. At the beginning it was unclear to people who were taking care of project what are we required to do, so was for us. And it took a lot of time to figure it out.

    Advice to Management

    Probably be bit more prepared for interns and have some idea what they are going to work on. It would be nice to also work as a part of a team.

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

    Pros

    1. Great colleagues here locally with good team chemistry. 2. There "was" very little politics going around. 3. Social club events are fun. Promotes relationship building and builds team bonding. 4. Good team work among all stakeholders in a project (Solution Architects, PM, SolCons, DBA, etc)

    Cons

    1. Travel benefits could be better. 2. Managers need to appreciate and value talents. 3. Can be bureaucratic at times. 4. Increment could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Work on promoting internally and value your employees. Openet used to provide competitive salary package - but not anymore it seems.

    Overall good place to work. Hands on environment and a clear direction from the CEO of where the company is heading in the future.

    Lack leadership in certain departments that might lead to unclear development growth

    Pros

    - Good and caring management - Chances to grow from technical perspective - Plenty of project exposures - Decent working location

    Management should focus on career growth for local / off-shore employees and develop a long term plan to get employees certified

    Pros

    Opportunity to develop career and learn. Don't have to work long hours that often. You can move between different projects, learning different technologies. Hard work is recognised if you have the right manager.

    Cons

    Leadership seems unclear what direction the company should go in. Management seems to lurch from one crises to the next, dragging developers on to projects to meet impending deadlines. Managers don't plan medium to long term. Features are added without much thought of how they affect the overall product. Good technical staff are leaving and not being replaced or being replaced with entry level engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Plan better for the long term.

    Pros

    Great work environment, great team, overall nice place to work at.

    Cons

    Very limited market tends to narrow down your knowledge. Uses a proprietary development language instead of popular languages such as Java, Python, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the full potential of the employees are not being used. Give them more opportunities to demonstrate value!
