What is health insurance like at OpenText?

Pros

They have not changed the legacy remote work policy - probably because management knows the remaining development team will quit if they do.

Cons

Below market wages for the area (Pasadena) No healthcare choice No stock participation No bonuses or incentives outside whatever crumbs fall from the executive table Forced Vacation to prevent accrual No career advancement No direction or vision for the products they've acquired Ineffective leadership

Advice to Management

OpenText is a company of risk-averse, short term balance-sheet focused bureaucrats - as such there is no amount of advice that will change anything about how things are done. Do not let the patina of an engaged customer-product focused software company fool you. It absorbs other companies strictly to maintain financial numbers that are received well on wall street.

No healthcare choice

Does OpenText pay for professional licenses?

Pros

Large installed customer base and broad product portfolio.

Cons

Management is trying to cheat the field organization. For license deals larger than $2m you only get reduced commission rates. Also the incentive plans is not aligned with what the company is trying to achieve. For cloud deals only 50% of the deal amount is recognized, what a funny thing!

Advice to Management

Always remember, someone's effort is a reflection of their interest in you.

For license deals larger than $2m you only get reduced commission rates.

Does OpenText give time off to volunteer?

Pros

1)Very good working environment. Result oriented/work - life balance friendly management. 2) A lot of career development/wellness &v volunteer activities organized at the Cork site. If your focus is to develop new personal/ professional skills you will have a lot to choose from in terms of training opportunities and internal programs. 3) internal mobility chances improving during last years 4) Volunteer hours (to be spent during company organised events or personal volunteer activities. 5) Local management always looking for feedback through surveys and meetings.

Cons

- Facilities could be better. (Some improvements during last months) - Salary increase should be consistent with OpenText growth and local salary market: loyal experienced employees should get a stable and predictable salary increase over the years. They are those who helped during the many acquisitions and acquired key skills. - Integration of acquired products are difficult by definition. OT should improve their integration process.

Advice to Management

1) Reward your loyal employees, they are the core of your good results. 2) Keep up the good effort on site activities 3) provide more product training during the integration of newly acquired products. A global training team that is responsible to create training targeted to several area of the acquired business (technical, sales, etc) would be a good thing.

4) Volunteer hours (to be spent during company organised events or personal volunteer activities.
