    Pros

    Great co-workers, interesting product, great clients -- OK company with an average reputation and now part of a legacy company with reputation in question

    Cons

    Autonomy may or not find its way as part of HP -- the parent company is so large and at such a questionable place on its own timeline -- it's hard to see where or in what form Autonomy will be a factor in its life and work

    Advice to Management

    Connect with workers with bonuses and in-person conferencing to build loyalty, otherwise attrition will continue and the ideas that could enhance its relevance will go with exiting workers

    Pros

    Flexible working environment with the ability to focus on historical and new accounts

    Cons

    no real sales strategy - treat every deal as tactical. Management can come across as desperate to close any size of deal

    Advice to Management

    start to take a more holistic approach to selling into major accounts and they will take you serious

    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 Management

    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?
