Micro Focus Employee Review

I received 2 P45's while still employed by them

its cold calling, plain and simple, managers have no mercy when it comes to meeting targets and will hound you if you don't meet them. enough is never enough for them always wanting you to make more money. its all about money they don't realise that people have other motivations apart from money, in addition the management is poor when it comes to empathy and sympathy and simply worry that their manager will hound them if they dont meet their targets. slow to react to new mediums always focusing on cold calling, data is usually bad. Marketing is poor and from my time there, their own customers werent happy with them due to little contact and support

Pros

decent salary

Cons

cold calling, little support from managers, sink or swim mentality

Good company to work to gain experience thats it

Good company with good benefits. Hard to move internally, too micro managed and too many people bossing which is very hard to you to handle. Too much going and no clarity.

Great place for starting career

Good place for starting a career and gaining experience in the IT industry. Benefits include free dental and health care which seem to be standard in the industry, but lacks benefits offered by the newer tech firms keen to attract the younger crowd. Much of the software offered by Micro Focus is legacy and new business is not easy to come by. Mergers cause plenty of confusion and mean consolidating teams and systems which take time to happen and unavoidably people being sacked, bringing much uncertainty and sometimes lack of cooperation amongst employees.

Pros

Salary, access to executives, relocation opportunities, good work life balance.

Cons

Lack of direction and support given by management, somehow feels old and outdated, marketing is almost non-existent for some products, sales managers over focus on compliance deals.

Not a bad place to work

Not a bad place to work if you just want to be a number on a spreadsheet. The management are only out to line their own pockets. Bonuses and pay rises are non-existent.
