Pros

Despite being a med-large company, you still get recognized with gifts and mementos for your work Anniversary, birthdays big personal events in your life. Additionally , most of the people I have worked with are smart, and passionate about making a contribution.

Cons

Opentext is constantly buying companies, which makes it difficult to have a cohesive product strategy. Customers are confused about our offerings, and the employees are confused because the change is so rapid. It is difficult to keep up.

Advice to Management

Do a better job of integrating the companies/products that are underneath the Open Text umbrella. Cross train people.

    I have been working at OpenText full-time

    Pros

    OpenText is a global corporation and most of the people you'll deal with day-to-day are competent, friendly, and helpful. Working from home is not an issue and schedules are flexible.

    Cons

    Upper management does not seem to be willing to make investments in existing products, preferring to hire large numbers of junior developers offshore.

    Advice to Management

    While it's good for a software organization to hire young, fresh minds, there needs to be a balanced approach. The issues with the existing products, upon which ongoing revenue depends, are not going to be solved by just adding bandwidth.

    Company feels top heavy; need workers, need good leaders, and need to communicate better to staff.
