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

    Pros

    Good Company to work for. Great benefits, great people, excellent work/life balance. Honest management. Company growing financially and by acquisition. Management is excellent at successfully integrating acquired companies and setting realistic attainable financial goals. Good place for entry/mid level people to get experience and grow their career.

    Cons

    Can be boring sometimes. Slow moving and sometimes political. Working with certain overseas groups is sometimes a pain because of differing work culture and time difference. Not such a good place for experienced people (10yrs +) to move up, but is a secure place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Institute pay raises. Haven't had a pay raise in five years although bonus has been paid for the last 4 years. At least increase the bonus percentage.

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

    Pros

    Offices for development (for now), really good manager.

    Cons

    Non-competitive salary, no career path, bonuses are rare if at all. Since the company has gone through many mergers/acquisitions the entire upper management never seem to know whats going on.

    Pros

    The people working out of the Seattle office are spectacular. Management takes quick action when issues arise.

    Thank you very much for such a great review on the Micro Focus Seattle Site "Leadership Team". We really work hard to offer the best customer service in the best possible environment. Furthermore, we are extremely thrilled to hear of the quality and dedication that was reflected within your most recent customer experience. I will ensure that those managers who sit on the Seattle Leadership Team get the recognition they so rightfully deserve. Again, thank you!

    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time

    Pros

    If you enjoy working with talented people solving very difficult problems, and doing it in a small team environment this company is for you.

    Cons

    Rapid growth has changed the "Feel" of the company and it's hard to keep up with each new merger and acquisition.

    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits probably close to the best one can get for this area, especially the benefits (time off, medical, etc.). Absolutely great people to work with in Bellingham and Seattle.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management. It takes forever for decisions to get made and people at the top have little idea of what's going on at the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    As the companies get smaller over years, the number of layers of management should decrease, but it seems to have stayed the same or gotten worse. Probably because those of you in those layers are the ones that make the decisions about who gets to go.

    I worked at Micro Focus full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Novell had a great work/life balance. The people were pleasant to work with as well. Developers have their own spacious offices in a nice high rise building overlooking the mountains or local municipal golf course. Benefits were good at one time, but really took a hit when the company was taken private.

    Cons

    This is an Enterprise Software company and as such the software they product isn't used by a large number of people. Their sales have been poor for many years and although there was once a lot of cash on hand, they have been taken private and then public again and it seems the cash has evaporated during that process. There is not much excitement about the products that are actively being worked on.

    I worked at Micro Focus

    Pros

    Awesome experienced coworkers. Still have some nice amenities including the cafe and health center.

    Cons

    Bought out by Micro Focus International who has no plans to have Novell products compete in the industry. They are milking whatever revenue they can until it's gone.

    Advice to Management

    There are still some viable technologies and innovation within the company if only management would invest appropriately.
