    I've worked for many technology companies over the years and this one leaves a bad taste.

    I worked at Autonomy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I joined this company with hopes of sharing a technology that I thought would be a difference maker and exciting to sell. I really think the technology is solid.

    Cons

    Too many skeletons in customer closets. Too many clients that have been burned w/broken promises. This negative information undermines any effort to sell new clients. Management by fear and intimidation has to go. A revolving door of talent. HP is always looking for a replacement body. Training new people is a constant at Autonomy/HP. After 1 year with this company I was one of (3) people left that were in my initial training class of 32. I lasted 1 1/2 years and left completely frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Autonomy management that has stayed on from acquisition needs to go. They may be performing and making their numbers but don't be fooled, they're bad apples. There is no effort to provide customer satisfaction and do the right thing for clients.

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good technology that can be used as a differentiation. Good platform for cloud and archiving unstructured data. Legal is good to work with on contracts, in line with sales and helpful. HP brand is helping them and adding some structure to the sales process.

    Cons

    Very highly leveraged comp plan. They go through sales people quickly. Some do VERY well, esp those who have been there for a long time and know the products and internal mechanisms and can work the system. For others it's a challenge with many folks going after same accounts. Bad support and implementation history makes add on selling and up selling very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the customer more, and less on the quarterly #. Provide a fair and equitable territory and provide new folks an opportunity to succeed.

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting technology as part of the larger HP organization, it's possible to look at other areas within HP for possible career moves

    Cons

    Micro management, public belittling of employees, high turnover (i'm the last one left of my initial training group of 24 - and that's less than 2 years later) unrealistic

    Advice to Management

    understand the culture that still exists in Autonomy - and it is toxic to long term success. Bring better and more consistent management from HP or outside the organization.

    Pros

    technology is solid, a few people make money

    Cons

    rough sales environment, high turn over, no transparancy, few new products, good deals are few and far between. No annual performance reviews, no increases, unattainable quotas. Channel conflict is prevalant.

    Advice to Management

    clean house, when 100% of your teams don't make quota, address the numbers, address the compensation, or be prepared to lose everyone worth keeping.
