    Advice to Management

    - Management first should understand the domain before going for any changes.

    I worked at Optiva full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    There were lot of pro's but now nothing. It was one of best organization to work for but these money minded Nuisance people screwed it completely.

    Cons

    - No value for hard-worker - No morality or office ethics - These so called Nuisance people works only to fill 40 hours a week. They do not care about whether its beneficiary to organization or no? - No value for good or domain expert - Completely screwed management - If you want to become puppy to earn money, then you can join

    Advice to Management

    This section needs to remove for this organization now. They do not listen. Management from top, if you argue them or ask them question, then that will be your last working day. They just needs puppy's to can bark/bite when they want and when they say. Worst CEO I ever saw in my 20+ years of career.

    I worked at Optiva full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    In the past, Redknee used to be a company with good products, technically competent employees, valuable customers and great work culture.

    Cons

    Redknee employees have been fired after ESW tookover and have been replaced by Crossover freelancers (Employees, Management and even CEO is a freelancer) who do not understand the domain, technology and products. The freelancers have no idea of telecom domain and are only interested in hourly billing. Nobody really cares for the technology, products or customers. They have no commitment and leave for another assignment...

    Advice to Management

    Stop fooling around fake productivity metrics, imaginative customer success and all other metrics that you use to bleed Redknee only to benefit Crossover. You failed miserably. Admit it.

    Bad management after the hostile take over. Completely bad decisions, Customers have been lost and people have been laid off mercilessly across the globe
