    I have been working at Autonomy (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Loved the open environment, maybe particular to the Plano office. Had great events to bring the various finance departments together.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for internal growth. I was on the opposite end of the acquisition and myself along with other in my group were let go. We all tried to interview and find positions within HP but were not able too.

    Advice to Management

    I think Meg is doing a fine job righting the ship from previous management decisions. Not sure I understand moving the Autonomy Bus Unit with Printers, but what do I know.

    I worked at Autonomy full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work. Excellent leadership at the lower level. Corporate does a good job of keeping people informed and up to date on industry trends. Great support for remote employees. Even the layoff package was thorough and very complete.

    Cons

    Very difficult to see what impact you have on your division, much less the company as a whole. Senior management tends to obfuscate how well division are doing.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Hugely challenging workin environement. Broad exposure to new technologies. Excellent team ethos and dynamic working environment. Opportunties are varied and performance related. Excellent identification of an individuals skills and strengths. Hard work and dedication are rewarded. Strong competent management who quickly identify what is neccessary.

    Cons

    Core emphasis on sales and targets, placing enginering under strain. Acceptance that hours beyond 40+ a week are standard with no obvious financial reward; no clearly defined bonus structure. Dynamic working environment, wi'th 'upstart' approach is effective provided communication is clear and well maintained. Otherwise, lack of process can result in work being duplicated and poor quality results. Probably the result of rapid growth and huge success.

    Advice to Management

    Implement basic processes and ensure products and services are sold clearly with regards to their capabailities. 'Yes' cluture places engineering under unsustainable pressure.

    Do you want your job to be a vacation? Only those that answer 'yes' need apply.

    Pros

    Quite simply if you are not prepared to completely dedicate yourself to this company and be prepared to work 70+ hrs a week no need to apply. If however, you are looking for a unique, challenging and hugely dynamic environment whilst prepared to make scarifices this is the place for you. Management will not communicate to you as indicated by previous threads. They simply feel they should'nt have to, and either your face fits or it does'nt. By in to the vision, work hard (and i mean hard - 100hrs a week quite possible), and obtain the trust of management , and you will be rewarded ve. If you don't like this, please don't sign on as the experience will benefit no one.

    Cons

    See above. Either its of u or it is not. Absolutely no point wining or complaining. This is a hugely black and white company. No room for 9-5's.

    Advice to Management

    Screen people more rigorously. Possibly someone responsible for recruitment? Getting the wrong people in such a lean and fast paced organisation. Also better QA for UI's.
