    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexibility , appreciation from the loyalty Amazing technologies You are part of a BU / Product, so culture is around that team.

    Cons

    slow for changes but we are getting there

    Advice to Management

    We went to 3 spin and merge from HP to HPE to MF, so it was hard for the people and there was a lot of turn over. The dust is sealing and I can see that the CEO really wants to make things right. You prove the value and he does commit to invest and support. 8 month since the final merge and things are changing for good. I am very optimistic, CEO is very open and have direct line with everyone so it is up to each one... to make things work for better and push for what we believe that is the right thing. So give it a chance, if you work for MF work hard to make it the place that you want it to be, if you are considering look at the technologies and you capacity to learn. Some of the technologies are amazing, Vertica in particular, and you can learn a lot and have access to the amazing customers, defiantly can build your career on what you learn.

    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is so much potential in our software solutions - with the individual products, solutions areas, and the company portfolio as a whole. We truly have great stuff to offer our customers! We should be absolutely killing it in the market.

    Cons

    The leadership in this company has no idea what is broken. We are not on a path to succeed. Issues are always blamed on "the disruption of the merger", but we all know (the people who do the work) that the biggest issues are lack of real leadership and no ability to execute on the basics. The corporate marketing org is one of the best examples of that. A lot of people are in roles that they shouldn't be in and they... make poor decisions because of their lack of knowledge/experience (most often no decisions at all are made which is even worse). I do my best every day, but Micro Focus is a very frustrating place to work for those of us who want to be part of something great.

    Advice to Management

    Many of us feel like we are being set up to fail. We have poor leadership and people in roles that they don't belong in. Your leaders do not strive for success or inspire other - it seems like many are OK with being simply mediocre. Yes, sales is an issue but the problems are so much larger than sales - marketing (especially around campaigns and the website) is an absolute travesty, IT support never responds, HR is... not helpful, anything around the channel is neglected, our development teams are terrible, etc. Please start questioning the rosy picture that you are being given by those who work for you and actually dig in to find the real issues. Most of the good people I work with at Micro Focus are frustrated and looking to leave.
