    I worked at Openet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good location if you drive Flexible hours Excellent and approachable staff Interesting and rewarding work

    Cons

    No bonus No raises No reviews No clear direction. The company plan seems to change with every staff call (when there is one) Staff are defeated, overworked, thinly stretched

    Advice to Management

    Hold on to staff you have. You have an excellent work force in EMEA. APAC needs quality control and accountability for mistakes. Your products are top class and have really grown/matured over the years. 5G will bring great opportunities, but make sure you have the staff and internal knowledge to use them! More graduates are not the answer. Address the moral issue.

    I have been working at Openet full-time

    Pros

    Good place for graduates. Lots of strong technical minds to learn from. Pool table, Table tennis table. M50 Adjacent. Lots of various interesting projects

    Cons

    Too many managers Literally don't care about employees after finishing the graduate program. "Competitive" salaries, far below market standard. Terrible review process, no indicators of good performance, or means to advance within the company. "Just keep doing great work!". Too much legacy code slowing down the entire business.

    Advice to Management

    Improving "Culture" won't fix the company. Promote and pay internally over spending extra to bring in new staff.
