    Pros

    The environment is great, people are hard working and friendly to each other. There is no micro-management! The company is fair to its employees and have good communication regarding its goals and acquisitions. The employees are generally loyal to OpenText, this says something very nice about OpenText!

    Cons

    It would be nice if colleagues would be able to meet each other at least once per year!

    Pros

    OpenText has been growing really fast, and became a MAJOR leader in its field. With this comes great opportunity for everyone! I am happy to be along for the adventure!

    Cons

    Like other LARGER companies spread throughout the world, you may have people on your team working in different time zones, and communication may take a day. But that is the world we live!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees in mind when making decisions! It is not ALWAYS the bottom line that determines which way to choose.
