    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at OpenText full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with some very talented people on some challenging projects over the years.My overall experience at OpenText was positive, yet I would still caution people considering work at this company.

    Cons

    Company is driving growth through acquisition and cost reductions. Companies are acquired, stripped bare, expenses reduced and semi integrated into OpenText. This can make for an unsettling work environment for employees at all levels. Senior Management are consistently dishonest with customers and employees and this dishonesty permeates the corporate culture.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    People here are generally very good. Hard working, understanding and trying to get things done. Products are very strong, market leaders etc. Not all products and none are perfection but generally the software works really well with lots of happy customers. Depending on your department, lots of scope to grow and develop your career. If you work at it you will be rewarded. No free rides, but plenty of room to do well. Lots of people who leave come back. Large numbers of return employees who prefer OpenText to the greener grass they sought.

    Cons

    Not lots of politics but there are some things that make love difficult. I’d say you find that in any company. It’s not too bad but sometimes a little frustrating. Pay can be a little hard to increase but not impossible. I’d say the pay is fair, above average but not stellar. If you work at it you can negotiate good pay but you have to drive this.
