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

    Pros

    The view from the window is nice at the Pleasanton Office.

    Cons

    the incident team is constantly overworked because the product is poorly designed and is too sandboxy--meaning the level of customization is incredibly high to the point that each customer's product can be vastly different from another's, and keeping track of the differences is tedious and ridiculous. I blame the sales team for bending backwards to the point where they're sniffing their own stupidity to give what... the customer wants. Many people are leaving as a result of this.

    I worked at Micro Focus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some good co-workers. Decent pay. Pretty good benefits. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Where to start? So many mergers and acquisitions that everything is changing ALL THE TIME. I have had 4 different managers in 18 months time. Product managers have changed 3 times in one year. There are systems in place from mergers over 8 years ago that have still not been integrated and doesn’t look to be integrated anytime soon. Senior management more focused on band-aiding problems rather than actually fixing... them. Most managers have been there so long and all they can do is adjust and adapt, not leaving a lot of room for any actual innovation or progress. No wage increases or career growth. Constant layoffs and recently re-hired many of those that were just laid off. So much turnover because if you survived the cut, you are definitely getting overworked making up for all the cuts. Be warned about all the positive reviews that state "no cons" at all. Even the best companies have their cons. The difference is that those companies actually fix those problems.

    Advice to Management

    What more can anyone say? Your recent employee surveys have pretty much stated the obvious. Try actually listening and fixing something.

    "Top down decisions are not so good"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

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

    Pros

    Good work culture and great, talented people.

    Cons

    Managed from outside the United States in very disconnected manner. Resulted in crucial functions being moved out of the country to less effective and bigger teams for cost savings which actuall slows and complicates processes. This is likely because they are trying to keep the stocks up. Which didn’t work out well for a lot of the employees.
