    Pros

    OpenText is a good place to work for people either trying to balance work and family or for generic managers wanting to climb the corporate ladders slowly.

    Cons

    Slow corporate pace, lots of managerial overhead, unclear product strategies, unclear growth strategies, bulk of revenues coming from maintenance of legacy products.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Compensation is OK, good balance between private and work life, clever and fun colleagues, working for a company that has never ceased growing on its market

    Cons

    No or very poor middle management
    No performance review
    No investment on People
    No promotion
    Poor integration strategy further to acquisition (pretty often have the feeling that Management is trying to put a triangle inside a square box)

    Advice to Management

    Invest on people, promote hard-working employees that drive the company's values everyday, challenge the middle management and rationalize the spectrum of acquired technologies for a better visibilty given to the customers.
