I was hired as a contract employee as a Technical Support Specialist with a base pay of 60k. Now the management is interested in making me a full time employee after my contract ends. I was wondering if anyone is willing to share their net pay as a TSS with 6YOE. So that I have a number to negotiate. OpenText

Hello guys, does anyone here works at OpenText . I wanted to know about the work environment in the company (By work environment i mean the culture , is it more of self starter or is it more hierarchical like big IT firms, something along these lines)? Any other information about the company is also appreciated. Thank you

OpenText has some sketchy interviewing technics. My interview was postponed 5 times at the last minute as she was pulled into a meeting. Finally, when the interview happened she said the hiring manager would be back from vacation in 2 weeks and would contact me then. After two weeks went by I followed up several times but never heard back. Not even a form letter. The job is reposted weekly. Seems sketchy.

Good work and life balance

Thank you for your feedback. As the company grows through acquisition, there will unavoidably be some duplication in roles which may lead to team structure rebalancing to ensure that the appropriate level of skill is attributed to each area of the business. As and when these changes may happen, information is provided to employees as early as possible in line with legal requirements. We try as much as possible to support team members in finding opportunities in other areas of the business, should their areas be impacted by restructuring.

The acquisitions team is great at finding hidden undervalued gems of companies to acquire, and it is exciting to be involved in this process if you happen to be involved in the finance aspect of things. The company is good at enabling work/life balance and the health benefits are good.
Finance & accounting dominates the company culture and does not mesh well with the more risk-embracing aspects of the R&D organization.

OT pays well above average in my experience. Work life balance can be good but is 100% at the discretion of your immediate supervior.
You will be expected to churn out work at a ridiculous pace. Teams often feel undermanned and corporate bureaucracy in obtaining additional resources will impede progress. Often teams are missing critical resources so milestones and deadlines are consistently missed. CEO preaches that OT hires only the best and brightest but are unable to retain them because of atmosphere. Inter-department and inter-product work is thinly veiled finger pointing and true teamwork suffers because of it. Annual review process involves a capped number of reviews at each level of achievement so consistent high level work may only earn you an average rating because too many other people outperformed their expectations despite praise from reviewing supervisor.6
