Awful company to be a sales rep

Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at OpenText full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSorry I cannot think of any.

ConsTerrible leadership, zero focus on product innovation or integrating all the legacy products in the stack via acquisition, and the EIM thing is not a vision but a pipe dream that is totally divorced from the reality of the company's product portfolio. Halfway through this fiscal year, over 2/3 of the sales reps had sold less than $100K in total revenue and less than 10 reps were on pace to make quota. Yet somehow, the company keeps reporting earnings growth. Virtually every rep in the entire company is currently interviewing elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease explain how the company continues to report record earnings while over 90% of the sales force is under quota.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
