Company was having financial difficulties. Now that it was acquired by OpenText, no longer an issue
I have been working at Daegis full-time (More than a year)
If you want to work at a company that puts the customer and innovation first, this is it. This focus drives a fast paced innovative environment where everyone gets to have an impact. You get to have input into creating new offerings, business models and pushing the company toward the high demand sectors of the IT market. They just signed strategic deals with Cisco and Oracle and are right in the middle of the big data and SaaS buzz! It's very rewarding to see the direct impact you can have on the business.
The company has changed strategic direction in the last year and employees that were tied to the old business were impacted. Good people were lost but the company had to move to where the demand was in the market and away from technologies that were getting commoditized. If you could demonstrate the ability to re-invent yourself and be of value in the new model they worked hard to keep these individuals. Lots of long timers here with 10-20 years of tenure who have done so.
Advice to Management
I think the leadership team has made the right hard choices. It is never easy to say good bye to good people and friends (they're talented people so will land well). Some of the pain felt by employees in the past was related to not making these hard decisions faster and played out as death by a thousand cuts. The leadership team is past this period and looking toward new growth going forward.
Lots of changes and cutting edge development tools are tested and implemented when possible.
If you struggle with anything you have no help, so you must succeed on your own.
Advice to Management
Not everyone is an instant superstar and some people need guidance.
