    Pros

    People in Marketing are outstanding. Competent, organized, dedicated, sense of humor.

    Cons

    Company is in transition. It's digesting the merge of HPE Software from 2017. It also seems to be phasing out positions in Silicon Valley, where it can't be competitive with the Googles/FB's.

    Advice to Management

    Use contractors until the company grows revenue again.

    Pros

    Good people and solid benefits. Aggressive acquisition strategy has overall been very successful. Most recent HPE merger has great potential. Current leadership is capable, but culture is ultimately defined by each leaders approach to their people and work. Most are great and have great teams. Totally enjoyed my teammates in multiple organizations. Other organizations are filled with great people too! Always... helpful and professional.

    Cons

    Directional changes and reorganizations in sales have caused customer and employee pain. Layoffs due to the merger of HPE Software and Micro Focus and missteps have caused a fair amount of concern for employees. Many good folks have left. My last sales VP posted great thoughts and inspirations, but was unpleasant and rude. Other VPs disliked working with him. After many good years, I was glad to go because of... the VP.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders need to challenge and spur positive change which is not always pleasant. But people will follow them willingly if they believe the person cares and has a good vision. However, if the leaders can't get along with their peers or teams, they are not leaders because people do not want to follow them. Weed them out. They are causing undue pain and ruining the "culture".

    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

    Great co-workers and team environment

    Cons

    The merger between Micro Focus and HPE software was a disaster. Layoffs after layoffs, all best people leaving or looking for another job. Management doesn't believe in marketing and won't spend them money on it, even though customers don't know who Micro Focus is.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so focused on EBTIDA and your bonuses and shares, focus on the long term of this company and your employees.

    Pros

    Lots of great benefits, and was a fantastic place to work under my previous manager.

    Cons

    The acquisition of HPE Software has really messed up the business. My new manager, coming from HPE, has a very different culture and micromanages.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Dont try to do everything on your own.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you want to be able to create an impact in how the company runs. Micro Focus is still working through the merger with HPE Software which tripled it's size, so new systems and processes are being built and implemented. This can make things a little complicated, but also makes it a great time to be part of shaping the future. Things have become more structured in the last year, with a strong... direction from the CEO who is making good changes. The people and culture are very good, it's a respectful and ethical environment where people want to do the right thing in the right way, and people look out for each other.

    Cons

    At the moment the old systems can be a little complicated, and it is taking time to straighten things out, although progress is being made. Even though Micro Focus and HPE Software were well established businesses, the new combined Micro Focus feels more like it is in start-up mode re-establishing its structure and momentum. A lot to be done, but great opportunity ahead if they get it right.
