Positive Outlook

I have been working at OpenLink Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

new CEO (following direction of new owners and new Board)
employees are extremely busy working on client projects
blue chip customer list
"old fashioned" people friendly HR policies
multiple product lines serving multiple industries
very interesting development challenges

Cons

silos
lack of coordinated management planning
entry level employees are thrown in the deep end too quickly
customers don't appreciate what they have
although it's a global company, there aren't many opportunities to work overseas

Advice to Management

place a higher priority on developing employees' skills
allow US employees to have short stints overseas

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    While you can work "9:45am to 4:45pm job with 1 hour lunch break," salary is described as "well below street levels." Limited advancement or recognition for a job well done was regularly referenced. If you don't like salary hikes and bonuses and promotions on merit and hard work this is the perfect place for you

    Cons

    Promotions are based on friendships not merit. One can even go as far to say that promotions are limited to friends only.
    Bonuses and raises are small.
    Really high employee turnover.
    Bad hiring practices, they hire inexperienced and incompetent yet expect perfection.

    Advice to Management

    Client retention has been excellent so far following the merger. But client dissatisfaction can take time to build, and OpenLink Financial could face an exodus if it loses its focus on customer satisfaction because of its bad management and incompetent staff.
