    Pros

    The company has provided me excellent opportunities to grow and develop my career. It's a dynamic place to be and has a bright future ahead, with strong leaders at the helm. The size of the company provides the advantages of a larger organization without being so big that everything gets bogged down. This provides latitude to implement ideas quickly and to be creative. Lastly, the company is committed to diversity and respects their people, which is extremely important to me.

    Cons

    Following the integration of HPE Software, there has been a lot of integration work underway. There is no way around the challenges that an acquisition brings, though all in all it's going well and the teams have worked hard to improve processes.

    Pros

    Very high-caliber people, capable, committed, smart, fun. Good work-life balance, and freedom (most of the time) to work from wherever I'm most effective. Business strategy is on point, exciting future.

    Pros

    Not many. to be listed out.

    Cons

    No care/concern for the employee. Recently the company messed up by acting smart with the sales folks and now facing law-suits.

    Heard penny wise "pound" foolish? Yeah this UK company.

    The US headquarters has no cafeteria. They buy cold and stale sandwiches from a neighboring company couple miles away and truck mixed soups to the HQ cafe. And thats how they motivate full timers to stay employed while other competitors in the valley serve free food.

    No stock or perk or RSU's. Totally old school game. The company is stuck in its COBOL days and every exec here have not evolved to modern ways of software or rewarding their employees.

    Greedy management but not so brainy. Am sure they are not reading this or probably dont even know of glassdoor existence. They are frozen in time.

    Advice to Management

    Greedy management but not so brainy. Am sure they are not reading this or probably dont even know of glassdoor existence. They are frozen in time.

    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth as many changes have happened through the last several years back from HP to MicroFocus. Strong leadership in place. Overall feel like we are in a good position and just need to get fully through the complexities of the merger just like any other company going through M&A.

    Cons

    Like any large company there are many hurdles operationally. There are many people working very hard to remove these hurdles.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the strong communication as it is important for the employees to truly know where we stand.

    Fair Salary
    Company has bought their way into the Big 4.

    Cons

    Demoralizing Management decisions.
    No Mentoring; just Lip Service to career mgmt.
    Minimal Career Advancement.
    No work like balance.
    Little control over making targets for commission pool. Just hope sales makes the target.

    As if they ever listened to advice from the ranks before... They won't now.
    I have given plenty before.
