Featured Review

Current Employee - Principal Architect

I have been working at OpenText full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Total 20 years of industry experience. Acquired by Opentext in 2013. This review is based on my last 6 years of experience. It took time for me to understand the Company and getting convinced with... it's business model and overall system. 1. Mark J. Barrenechea's and his team's leadership and forward thinking help predicting growing business challenges and driving innovation and align entire organization towards its cause accordingly. 2. Every sweat counts, as efforts always align to market needs. 3. Organization's respect towards environmental and social responsibilities. 4. Continuous innovation and comprehensive offerings to EIM market. 5. Opportunity to work in almost all latest technologies. 6. World class Infrastructure. 7. Employee friendly policies which promotes great work-life balance. 8. Strong Global market presence. 9. Experienced and Humble Senior management. 10. Regular updates to employees about present and future focus. 11. Big picture is clear and hence the work is meaningful. 12. Process Driven. 13. Financially stable. 14. Lot of Self learning materials and certifications. 15. Collaboration with industry tycoons like SAP, Microsoft etc. 16. Has strong financial muscle power (has bought Documentum for 1.6 billions) 17. Cab facility and many more.

Cons

1. Opentext is in limelight and influencing EIM market greatly. To keep up the competition and keep advancing, organization is updating strategies and adopting new strategies as appropriate. This is... remarkable. But gap in 'understanding of organizational strategies' by employees can lead to great confusion in the employees. Keeping all employees engaged and up to date in organization's cause is a continuous process and challenging. So it is a challenge for both employee and organization. 2. There are too many products and offerings. One need to stay focused and choose area of interest according to his/her strengths. 3. Hyderabad office being tenant in SEZ space, has very limited recreational facilities. To experience fresh air and natural light, one need to get out of the building.

Advice to Management

Create more avenues for engaging and ensuring employees to align their experience, strengths, efforts and energies towards organizational vision and goals. More connectivity with employees brings... more synergy. It is already happening, but I believe there is scope for improvement in "Ensuring" part. SEZ campus is nice but not great. See if independent campus a good idea provided if financially viable?
