    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time

    Pros

    1) No Micro-Management - in hiring you they inherently trust you to be able to perform
    2) Recruitment process is excellent; very friendly and candid, interview to employment was all done within 2 weeks.
    3) Very passionate employees committed to the success of the business
    4) Excellent business model
    5) Truly understand work/life balance which is motivating.
    6) No bells and whistles! Top senior managers are very down to earth and humble; support is provided where asked for and they aren't all suited up with gold cuff-links; it's all about fit, form and function to do the job to the highest quality as far as I can see.

    Cons

    None that I can see.

    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Working with the best professionals in town
    - Competitive atmosphere with professional team players
    - Selling to the greatest companies in the world
    - Work-from-home options

    Cons

    - No one knows who Micro Focus is
    - The future of Micro Focus is largely unknown. Many employees fear that Micro Focus is where products go to die. The potential is there, but will upper management invest in the future, or cut to the bone and milk their cash cow with a skeleton staff?

    Advice to Management

    With the spin-merge from HPE to Micro Focus, many of the best professionals in the enterprise software market made the move over to Micro Focus. Micro Focus needs to overcome the perception that they only know how to take successful products and let them rot on the vine.

    Micro Focus just merged HPE Professional Services into there catalog. Although, sales are sluggish currently the potential for great things are available.

    I worked at Micro Focus full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people to work with. Products are legacy, but this means they are very stable and customers still need them. There is a strong focus on revenue attainment.

    Cons

    Many customers are migrating away from the products and it is difficult to maintain the revenue. This is to be expected since the products have been around for many years.

    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working with people. Its the global security center. So, I was monitoring and taking phone calls all over the world.

    Cons

    The payscale is very poor. I get paid a little over minimum wage. I am a Liscensed security officer that speaks 3 languages and have worked in retail management for 22 years.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the pay so the employees will stay working and work proficiently
