I don't think your firewall would distinguish between
"openafs.org" and "employer_domain".
To check the firewall run as root : "iptables -L".
Or disable the firewall using "Yast2".
Anyway, to see which fileserver of employer_domain is not reachable:
(fails with connection timedout), then
This should give you the hostname of a fileserver failing to respond.
Then you can try to establish a debug connection to that
/usr/sbin/rxdebug (fileservername) -v
This is the thing you need to get to work first. It can be a firewall
issue on your computers side or on your employers' side.
