    I worked at Openet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A company on the rise, work life balance is excellent, career progression very much a factor for every employee.

    I think a great pro about this company that goes unheard is the fact it's an Irish owned software company.

    Cons

    Offices are outdated, employee base is demographically quite old. Business is a bit archaic but is on the rise just needs a bit more put into it.

    I feel this business is a few big and key decisions away to making it a power house software company worldwide. The products and services they produce are amazing but its lacking in some real strong leadership. Change was something that constantly rang through my mind when working there, and they need to rebuild the company with some fresh ideas and fresh faces that will carry them even further.

    Advice to Management

    More youth, and more money put in to make it modern and attractive.
