    It's a job

    Cloud Engineer (Current Employee)
    Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsThe job provides a decent lifestyle and interesting challenging work. Awesome people that hold the teams together.

    ConsI don't have anything particularly new to say compared to the present reviews. I can see truth in most of the issues raise, but wonder if it's really that different to other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLooking forward to see what magic HP can bring. I am very hopeful that Meg Whitman sees the challenge of transforming the business from ones that driven by sales to one that driven by customer (and hopefully employee) satisfaction.

    HP is making a big difference

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsNew management really gets it. Things are starting to turn around, but there's a ways to go.

    ConsThere are lots of challenges, and it will take a while to fix what is broken.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet us have more access to HP's systems and infrastructure.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Much improved

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsSince the directors quit a couple of months ago things have got much better here. Plus the web filter that stopped us getting to a load of websites has gone and the dress code is casual at last.

    But the best thing about being here is the rest of the dev team who are great guys and you learn loads from each other.

    ConsThough the former directors were the cause of most of the negativity here we could still probably do with some new ones so I hope someone's looking.

    Much improved

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsSince the directors quit a couple of months ago things have really got better for us in Cambridge at least. Plus the web filter that blocked access to a load of websites has gone and the dress code is now casual.

    But the best thing here has always been the rest of the dev team who are all great guys and you learn loads from each other.

    ConsThough the directors were the cause of much of the negativity here we could still do with some new ones, so I hope they're looking for some.

    Research and Development is a joy at Autonomy.

    Research and Development Engineer (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsThe work is extremely rewarding in R&D. The technology is fantastic, and the the opportunities for a challenging career are better than at most companies.

    ConsHistorical culture issues with culture are quickly evaporating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue embracing the heart of the HP Way, invest even more in R&D and customer satisfaction. The Autonomy software portfolio has so much more potential with more customer satisfaction.

    Incredible technology, great opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe technology is second to none.
    Good management support.
    Access to all tools necessary to help customers find success in their areas

    ConsTraining is currently being strengthened and has a little way to go.
    Traditional Autonomy metrics are still being used but that is for the reps to deal with and not let it interfere with the relationship with the client.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupplement the training with more in-depth offerings for the verticals.
    More centralized account control as opposed to the more "Oracle" method of having multiple reps in a single account with no identified leadership
