Approves of CEO

I have been working at OpenText full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good core product, colleagues are the best

Cons

middle management is inept, mainly due to a lack of leadership from the VP level (who are only interested in their P&L)

Advice to Management

too many acquisitions over the last 5 years without bedding in the products to the suite or the new employees to the OT culture. Also, we are people not 'resources' or P&L entries

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at OpenText full-time

    Pros

    Some very solid technologies that have great market-share and strong growth potential

    Cons

    Big company that has grown through insane acquisition pace. Everything is silo-ed by product group no matter what they say externally and there are numerous competing platforms

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CEO, slow down the acquiring and focus on real, organic growth
