I worked at Autonomy

Pros

Starting pay is usually fair.
Local management tries to motivate and lead but has no real authority and ability to make local decisions.

Cons

Products are not designed, coded and tested. They are coded and deployed. Huge amounts of re-work. Upper management likes to claim that Autonomy can do anything in 3 weeks. Agreed, as long as it is not really expected to work.
Company products are categorized by "Power", "Protect" and "Promote". All employees know that the biggest category is "Pretend"..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pass this mess on to actual managers and leaders to fix..
