    Interesting Company

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsPhenomenal technology, Diverse service offerings, HP owned, Great whitepapers, collateral, marketing brochures. Products and Services Relevant now with product offerings. Heavily focused and successful in delivering Cloud Solutions.

    ConsMetrics Based in a big way, rigid systems that do not provide good workflow for a field rep. No real account ownership outside of certain divisions, Tech Support could be improved, Company being integrated into HP and this creates apprehension for some.

    Work which is intellectually engaging at times and offers a flexible schedule but overall a numbing cultural experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGenerous vacation is offered. Allows for a relaxed work-lifestyle given that your work schedule can be flexible. Exposure to other product offerings and possible career changes. Employees with a proactive attitude can thrive here. Good stock options or restricted stock units rewarded. Good bonus plan.

    ConsAn ambiguous company structure from an employee career growth perspective. No annual salary increases. Additional compensation based on qualitative milestones. Employee review or assessments are not well structured or non-existent in some cases. Impersonal culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide career paths or options for employees. More clarity to the review process for employee performance assessment and its translation to compensation.

    Will never become a big player because they don't treat employees with respect

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsHP recently purchased them and appears changes are coming (hopefully to management)
    Pay is OK
    They have Free Lunch Fridays

    ConsTreat employees poorly
    Management is clueless
    No advancement opportunities
    No HR review process or annual raises (get your money going in because you will never see another dime)
    High turnover rate

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a review process for employees and merit increases
    It is hard to keep good people if you do not incent them!
    For the love of god.... contribute more than $1000 annually to 401K. Most real companies match employees contributions!

    OK company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsIt has some good technologies and smart peoples. It also pays good after merger with other small companies.

    Consbenefits are not good. the company is pretty stringent on everything, from pc, laptop and other stuff. Low benefit matches.

    Advice to Senior Managementplease offer good benefit packages, good 401k matches. Put more energy on research and development, not only on sales.

    The Computer Associates of England

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsThere are some very smart people working here. Autonomy has interesting core technology and a good story behind it. It continues to grow and is constantly moving.

    ConsAutonomy has been swallowing up companies. It doesn't make the best decisions about how to use those resources. Decisions are often made from the top. There is no management structure so communication about important changes are often through the rumor mill.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
