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

    Pros

    New management really gets it. Things are starting to turn around, but there's a ways to go.

    Cons

    There are lots of challenges, and it will take a while to fix what is broken.

    Advice to Management

    Let us have more access to HP's systems and infrastructure.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work is extremely rewarding in R&D. The technology is fantastic, and the the opportunities for a challenging career are better than at most companies.

    Cons

    Historical culture issues with culture are quickly evaporating.

    Advice to Management

    Continue embracing the heart of the HP Way, invest even more in R&D and customer satisfaction. The Autonomy software portfolio has so much more potential with more customer satisfaction.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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?

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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!

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
