    Pros

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

    Cons

    Training 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 ManagementAdvice

    Supplement 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

    Pros

    outstanding technology. significant rewards for some. lots of great customers. awesome people from more countries and backgrounds you can count on any map!

    Cons

    be prepared to suffer the long a winding road if you arenâ??t one of the well-educated â??elliteâ?? from the very few top universties from which management choose â??only the bestâ??. this obviously short sighted policy means lots of great people just donâ??t make the grade

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    its hard to criticise financial success or great products i know but not everyone is a green beret performer. as someone else on this site has already said not everyone has the same "take that hill" abilities so maybe give the tougher challenges to the tougher people and share the opportunities around a bit more?

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    The perks, food, transportation and technology being the main ones, and there are lots of things that make it a geek's paradise. It looks good on your resume â?? very successful cash rich and growing quarter on quarter. The chance to meet some very bright and interesting people every day though there is heavy emphasis on education. It's cool to be on the inside and learn about new products the top organisations are now usingâ?¦ particularly in legal space

    Cons

    If you have a PhD from a top university you can do some fascinating things, but if you donâ??t then youâ??ll find yourself swimming upriver very slowly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember not everyone has a brain road tested in Stanford

    Pros

    You work with really smart people on projects that have direct and visible impact on really well known companies and governments.

    Cons

    It is growing so fast that its not as easy to move around the company like you used to be able to do. Career advancement is slower too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the communication between telecommuters and their managers. Open new offices where demand is growing. Relax some cost controls particularly for consumables.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    very focussed and cost controlled i can see why some might not like it but personally i prefer to be in a fast paced place that's going places. doesn't suit everyone i know

    Cons

    a lot of strategic decisions are taken centrally - not necessarily bad but can be a bit bruising if you've been used to doing your own thing in the past

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no issues on controlling costs but maybe make the process easier than it is. having said that, continue doing what you're doing because cash is king!

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    Scope for career advancement.
    Interesting projects
    Definite feel of being on "A mission"
    Access to senior management at appropriate times

    Cons

    Can be tough
    If you're not self motivated, don't apply.
    Better be comfortable with airports and airplanes.
    Aggressive approach, though this was honestly conveyed up front and evident immeadiatly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little time off would have been nice. Even the most dedicated people sometimes need some time off to themselves to recharge the batteries

    Pros

    Employee Engagement, Industry level comp & benefits, Lot of growth opportunities within the company, Diversity and inclusion council actively working to bring in more diversity and bringing more women back to work.

    Cons

    Software needs more focus and need to move away from he Services oriented culture. Engineering and Non-Engineering viz. Operations & Services need to co locate so that it brings the Engineering closer to the customer needs and interests

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With HP split in the process now, both the companies should bring back innovation and R & D to the fore & focus so that the companies are able to maintain the leadership status in the market with more new products and services.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    I 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 ManagementAdvice

    Looking 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.
