    Pros

    Small technology company with excellent diverse staff , products & benefits.

    This small software company had excellent products and was acquired by a very large Canadian technology company which led to many layoffs in our corporate & worldwide locations.

    Pros

    Great software, good co-workers. Very customer focused.

    Former Employee - Director of Global Archive Support in Rutherford, NJ
    Former Employee - Director of Global Archive Support in Rutherford, NJ

    I worked at Daegis (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful customers, employees and products made it great place to work and was what kept me plugging away through the good and bad times.

    Cons

    Management's constantly shifting priorities made it very difficult to stay focused. Being acquired by Open Text was needed to keep us there for the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Need to understand the essential relationship between the customers and the crew supporting the product and provide tools and resources needed to continually build that relationship.

    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.

    Pros

    The people you work with on a day to day basis are great. Very helpful and friendly. Free Sodas, Coffee and Tea.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't support the employees. They do not provide the tools to get the job done. Some employees are working on 20 year old desk tops.

    Pay below average

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees the tools to do their jobs.

    I worked at Daegis full-time

    Pros

    Marketing and Development were smart and amazing

    Cons

    Poor Comp Plan; Poor leadership with panicked expectations for sales and no faith in staff to do their jobs; This is not a place for anyone beyond entry level sales

    Advice to Management

    Figure out where the issues are and support the talent; encourage the creativity needed to bring the strengths out in a really good product and understand that it takes a long time to sell services

    I have been working at Daegis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honestly, I'm writing this review because I saw all the negative ones and I must say I do not echo their sentiments. I've been working for Daegis for about a year and have really enjoyed my time here. We are a small, growing company so there is a lot of work to be done. The senior leadership team is very strong and has us all moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    I read another review that says the office looks like a call center. Yes, it could use some sprucing up but the break room is bright and the 15th floor views are nice.

    Advice to Management

    Have more of us fill out Glassdoor reviews. I was shocked when a friend told me he looked up Daegis and saw all of the negative reviews.
