Pros

Great people to work with.
Better than average benifits package.
Willing to invest in the tools needed to develop good software.

Cons

Software jobs sent to India. Lots of legacy products to maintain. Very little new products being developed. Open Solutions management does not understand their business units.

Advice to Management

Open Solutions does not understand their business units. Not all business units fit the six sigma model. Focus on US based employess more.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you want to work long hours and be screamed at to boot by people who have no idea on how to run a company this is the place to go. Lower level workers for the most part are nice and bust their humps trying to make things right but for the most part they are being abused by type a+ mean personalities in upper levels.

    Cons

    Management is totally and I mean totally incompetent. 80+ work hour weeks are the norm in the financial area. Forget about getting any type of positive feedback on any work you've done. It's all negative feedback and it's all about the blame game.

    For a software company it's almost comical how bad their internal systems really are.

    The bus is always being warmed up at this company just in case some one needs to be tossed under it.

    Advice to Management

    In all seriousness? Summed up it's please get some kind of a clue. You need to be all fired and admit the fact that you are running this company into the ground. Spend some time in the finance area and see how screwed up things really are. This place needs some continuity on their work staff so what do you do? Bring in management which flame throws everyone that been there and gets rid of the few who have any kind of experience and gave a good portion of their lives for this company.

    Pros

    Open Solutions is a great place to work if you are looking for a challenge. The work environment at Open is very aggressive.

    Cons

    If you like a slower more Policy driven environment Open is not the place for you. While there are great improvements towards this direction, Open is still a smaller more agile company so needs the flexibility of an agile work force.

    Advice to Management

    None
