    Pros

    Company sold this past month

    Cons

    CFO and CEO drove this place underwater over the past 2+ years. lack of a vision and strategy to deliver results. No accountability and missed opportunities... Sales Strategy was a joke - based on hope.

    Finally got sold to OpenText howevr lost some good people on the way.

    Advice to Management

    Should have done more to get the company out of the negative, don't just focus on reducing debt, focus on increasing sales and improving customer intractions.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Daegis (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for the most part with a health work life balance. Not a lot of micromanagement for the most part.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company continued to trend in the wrong direction for many years, that eventually led to a forced fire sale for pennies on the dollar.

    Advice to Management

    None much to give. This company is no longer in existence after it was acquired by a much larger company.

    I have been working at Daegis full-time

    Pros

    at the core the leadership is a team of people trying to do the right thing. most are friendly, easy to get along with, and approachable.

    Cons

    The most recent changes in leadership (hirings and firings) are leaving most employees puzzled and upset. Company appears directionless, have had a series of unfortunate events like very low stock price and bank issues. Good people are being thrown out and the company direction changes every 3-4 months. There is literally no culture whatsoever, and its surprising more people haven't left. The leadership is literally making every mistake to undermine the success of the company. The leadership team would make less mistakes by not doing anything.

    Advice to Management

    Just like the puzzled little boy said to his parents during the emperor's parade, "But he hasn't got anything on."


  5. "unprofessional and ineffective management"

    I worked at Daegis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone works hard and parties hard.

    Cons

    After the merger, upper management does not know what to do at all. They fired all the sales guys and then complained that there's no work for the rest of the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take over a company that you don't know how to run.

    Pros

    Only Pro was that Company was located in the San Francisco City.
    Discounted movie tickets

    Cons

    Upper Management decided to close the San Francisco and New York office and gave 25 days notice to all employees to find new Job because the company could not pay the rent in City.
    They could have moved to a small office around the city but guess company had better plans for in Texas.
    No Motivation in the company. People come to office late and leave early and nobody cares.
    Worst of all no Coffee machine. You can buy coffee downstairs.
    No Employee can plan a long term committed role at the company.
    Technology used in development is outdated and 2-3 years behind the current trend in the bay area.
    Please stay away if you are planning for something long-term

    Advice to Management

    Management keeps changing all the time. Please plan the financials better to locations can be kept open for a long time.

    Pros

    The employees here are the best ever. Talented, loyal to clients. Loyal to each other. Pull together across departments to get things done. Despite management. Clients: your case will succeed despite the company.

    Cons

    Overworked, under-appreciated, under-paid, scared. Afraid of being fired or laid off, everyone looking for work elsewhere but no time. Bonuses cut - used to be a BIG percentage of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to us. WITH us. Not AT us, loudly. Abrasively. Saying everything is great and to just buck up.
