    I have been working at Micro Focus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Products that have been installed in big enterprises and been running in background for years. Flexible work hours for pre-sales. Task oriented pre-sales team rather than time oriented.

    Cons

    Products are still silos. Senior management team has very good vision for the company but local management culture is toxic.

    I worked at Micro Focus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some good co-workers. Decent pay. Pretty good benefits. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Where to start? So many mergers and acquisitions that everything is changing ALL THE TIME. I have had 4 different managers in 18 months time. Product managers have changed 3 times in one year. There are systems in place from mergers over 8 years ago that have still not been integrated and doesn’t look to be integrated anytime soon. Senior management more focused on band-aiding problems rather than actually fixing them. Most managers have been there so long and all they can do is adjust and adapt, not leaving a lot of room for any actual innovation or progress. No wage increases or career growth. Constant layoffs and recently re-hired many of those that were just laid off. So much turnover because if you survived the cut, you are definitely getting overworked making up for all the cuts. Be warned about all the positive reviews that state "no cons" at all. Even the best companies have their cons. The difference is that those companies actually fix those problems.
