    Cons

    slow for changes but we are getting there

    Advice to Management

    We went to 3 spin and merge from HP to HPE to MF, so it was hard for the people and there was a lot of turn over. The dust is sealing and I can see that the CEO really wants to make things right. You prove the value and he does commit to invest and support. 8 month since the final merge and things are changing for good. I am very optimistic, CEO is very open and have direct line with everyone so it is up to each one to...

    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work from home, adequate vacation and PTO

    Cons

    System issues with SFDC, FUZE causing crashes on a daily basis; unable to pay sales compensation correctly after 8 months of current FY (last year it took 10 months for compensation true-up); management is not responsive to customer's requests and ignores emails, instant messages and asks to have same requests resent over and over again with no real resolution for the customers; low pay as compared to similar positions...

    Advice to Management

    Do not mess with people's pay and respond to emails and requests from customers in a professional manner-even if it is just a short sentence of acknowledgement. Do not commit to a new system until all the bugs have been worked out as it affects the functionality and success of the business. There have been numerous instances where the customers are hounding us for invoices to pay their support renewal and we are unable...

    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Compensation is good. Relaxed WFH policy.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else. It was truly a great place for many years. Since the merger almost all good employees have left. The last of the people with product knowledge will be gone very soon. IMO the flagship product will be no more in about a year due solely to poor management decisions. Development decisions are now being made by non-engineers which is turning into a disaster. Would you want a roofer giving you...

    I worked at Micro Focus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent middle management in the IT directorship at the time. Great work/life balance and decent benefits. Fairly liberal work from home policy. Great people and an excellent atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very low pay and salary increases as compared to similar positions in the area. They tend to determine salaries based on the global market so the numbers tend to be on the lower end of the curve in the local market. There is some turnaround on the sales side so lay-offs are normal when the company doesn't meet its quarterly forecasts.

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic about pay and determine salaries based on employees' local salary standards.
