Interview Details – Call from recruiter then phone interview then face to face.
Negotiation Details – Told one salary after accepted, then told another salary I ended up with a lower different salary.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Autonomy in March 2011.
Interview Details – Bizarre, irrational, and unusual is all I can say about this process. They will not tell you what job is open because they want to match "jobs to people" but it makes the process disturbing. The process got odder and odder and the people that I interviewed were given no information about previous interviews - they were in silo's and when I commented, they noted it was "designed that way."
Interview Question – What would you do if you were offered the position today (before they told me what position they were looking at me for)? You can see my answer below - the person then said - they were asking to see if I was "committed. to the company" which was very unusual that early int he interview process. View Answer

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Autonomy in April 2010.
Interview Details – Phone interview
one on one with executive
Never interviewed with direct manager
Interview focused on education level and not necessarily on experience or capability. Interested in numbers and spreadsheet management and solution or value based selling.
Strange process included hiring recruiter and interview with executive at corporate office. Interview will attempt to ask questions about missed sales quotas and past management styles but the executive wasnt even part of the sales organization and had a hard time with follow up questions.
Negotiation Details – None offer was standard
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Autonomy in November 2010.
Interview Details – Recruiter contacted, screened me. Passed me to someone from HR who I did a phone interview with. Flew to Chicago for a face to face. Had another phone interview with a VP who actually told me how hard it was to work there. got the offer three days later. I wouldn't consider any of this process difficult. I have been through much more difficult interviews before. Autonomy is pretty desperate for sales people to work there. Take a look at their website and notice that they have positions for AE's available, and no locations. That should be a red flag. They turn over a lot of people and there are no territories, so it doesn't matter where you live.

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Autonomy in June 2007.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a headhunter who worked with Autonomy regularly. Over the next week I had two phone interviews with two technical managers. They asked basic - medium difficulty technical questions. One thing that struck me as odd was that they asked if I were at a client site on their laptop and I wanted to work on their server- how would I do it. I said on Windows I would RDP (Remote Desktop) in and on Linux I would telnet in. This seemed overly-simplistic to me, but they asked it. Then there was a one-on-one interview in person with the technical manager. Then after that, someone in the position I was applying for gave me a printed test, Mainly code fragments and asked me what thecode did. It was jsp, which I was unfamiliar with at the time, but if you can read one language you can read most languages. It was pretty painless, but then again I was fairly technically-capable.
