    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    The matrix structure means nobody has full control or knowledge of my day-to-day activities. There is freedom as far as what hours I work and what projects I spend my time on. In general, there is not a lot of structure and very little guidance is provided. It's expected that you will figure out what works and get it done. Lots of fun if you enjoy the challenge of being thrown into a tough situation with no idea what you're doing. Difficult problems, smart people, a constant learning experience.

    Cons

    There is definitely a slave driver mentality with little concern for employees' overall well-being. This results in high turnover as people get burned out. All of the negative comments about the company are based in fact. But most of these conditions can also be positive if you happen to have the attitude and mindset required to fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Make more of an effort to keep people around. There is a huge loss in efficiency every time we lose someone with irreplaceable knowledge, and this happens far too often.

    Pros

    -they hire you based on your post-secondary education, and don't nitpick on whether or not you have the latest certifications or not -free soft drinks + free lunch on fridays -free pizza from time to time -profitable company -a job is a job is a job

    Cons

    -would like to receive more reviews and feedback from the top -raises and bonuses are very sporadic, but they are generous when they do actually occur

    Advice to Management

    Let the underlings know from time to time (not just by company memo) that they're doing a good job. Regular pay raises would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    put foot on the accelerator vis.a.vis R&D, company has leadership in many markets but needs to continue to innovate to be relevant.

    Pros

    Good structured company. For a large company, extremely nimble and supportive towards sales and company goals. Good benefits, compensated well.

    Cons

    Company does not always communicate well and information sharing is limited. For a technology company, does not use technology in the most efficient manner.

    Advice to Management

    Need to encourage better communication and sharing across the company. Create a more collaborative model and encourage teamwork in a better fashion.

    Pros

    Diverse range of products, and wide variety of customers. Lots of travelling, offers a good lifestyle for people who manage their time. People seem to be compensated well.

    Cons

    Lots of travelling. A lot of the skills you need have to be picked up on the spot, and quite a bit of improvisation is needed to complete the task.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure training for the necessary work is given before deploying projects, this will allow the project to be completed to higher standards.
