Managers are there because of long standing relations with few powerful people. They do not have knowledge, they do not nurture or provide training to team// people.
Managers put the blame of their failure on juniors very easily Highly conspicuous by its high labour turn over due to hiring-firing policy, so If you have job then do not leave your existing – more... job to join this company. Acquired too many companies, so they try different people all the time from various entities without giving enough training and time and spoil the job/ tasks. – less

Senior Legal Assistant/Consultant (Former Employee), Richmond Hill, ON – August 13, 2012
Pros: freedom and independence to do a great job.
Cons: richmond hill and oakville are too far apart to commute.
I worked there on a contract as a legal assistant/consultant in the law department. I was hired to train myself and others in creating a new corporate database. Management and my co-workers were wonderful. I worked with very minimal supervision and had my own office.

This global software company is continue to grow and will be the leader in Enterprise Information Management.

Principal Consultant (Current Employee), USA – May 1, 2012
Pros: you will learn a lot and the salary is descent
Cons: no raises, lots of travel
As a consultant with Open Text you will be challenged and you will learn a lot. I highly recommend working there if you can handle the travel. However, the management is poor, the consultants are not treated very well in many instances, there are no raises and there is little opportunity to move up - so after a few years you will probably want to move – more... on. But it is a great opportunity to learn a lot and to challenge yourself. It is very possible that the management will improve. – less
