    I have been working at Autonomy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you had talent, drive and an ability to adapt you could do well at Autonomy.

    Cons

    Salary, employee relations and career development for young people were quite bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They got fired or left after the HP acquisition in which they all probably made millions. What can you tell people enjoying millions of dollars aquired as a direct result of their mgmt practices?

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    Phenomenal 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.

    Cons

    Metrics 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.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    Generous 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.

    Cons

    An 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 ManagementAdvice

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