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

Pros

I work in services orgamization and it is one the better Employers I've worked with over the years. Management is helpful and works to actively maintain a proper work/life balance.

Cons

Management is slow to act on important policies and approvals. .

Advice to Management

Upper managment is still old school and thinks iterative waterfall process is the best software process to use! You will often run against roadblocks if you try to do something that is not been in practice for at least last 20 years. I believe the next step for OT can only be achieved by being nimble and incorporating more startup like characteristics.

    Pros

    Benefits, Time Off are great. Excellent Customers and great people - what's left of the long-timers.

    Cons

    No respect or value for employees or retention, especially front-line sales. Extreme micro management in place and pay is 10-20% lower than market.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO and think twice about retaining the dedicated force you have left...many of us are being welcomed with open arms by competitors. Will take months, if not years ot recover from the loss of skilled, seasoned professionals required to have the conversations necessary, at the c-levels required to sell the large, diverse suite.
