Disapproves of CEO

I worked at OpenText full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent work/life balance; some intelligent, hard-working colleagues

Cons

Upper management strategy don't seem to take into consideration resources, time, and feasibility to execute and the ramifications of those decisions; too much managing up and too little communication and coordination with the people who have to implement objectives

Advice to Management

Do you want a firewall between you and those who do the day-to-day execution of strategy? Will the current management culture allow you to make the dramatic changes that you feel are necessary to move the company in the right direction?

    Pros

    Decent culture in Canada ,,decent benefits

    Becoming a mini CA focused more on renewal revenue than new license revenue

    Pay attention to the field. New license growth should be where you focus not on renewals.
