      It WAS a great place to work!

      Pros

      I worked there for a long time, was consistently promoted to better roles, and was paid well and recognized for surpassing performance goals. This was before the OpenText acquisition.

      Cons

      After working at Carbonite for over 8 years, my whole team was divested, just weeks after the acquisition by OpenText. I showed up early and stayed late every day. I crushed my goals month over quarter over year. I never saw it coming. They treated me as a NUMBER, not a PERSON. One year later- midst pandemic- I am still unemployed, struggling to even get an interview. It's amazing how life changes so fast.

      Good Culture meets myopic management

      Pros

      There is a very positive culture for the employees and a camaraderie that is rare among sales positions. The office has solid amenities and they do make sure there's a lot of fun to be had when you get y our work dones.

      Cons

      Pay is only OK for the position and value my team brought in. Management tends to be myopically focused on things that don't have a long term benefit and when it doesn't pan out they turn into mega micro-managers.
