The "boiler room"+ Glengarry, Glen Ross + Full Metal Jacket = better sales jobs elsewhere

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsAutonomy had very interesting technology that is perhaps ahead of it's time. There are smart subject matter experts that can help sell to the right opportunity. There is a very generous compensation package heavily weighted on closed deals.

ConsThe is no sales training, but rather two days of presentation training. There is no knowledge transfer of how to succeed. There is nothing that one would relate to a traditional, complex, high dollar sales experience where credibility, competence, and trusting relationships are essential. It's no wonder why they turn over 90% of the sales force every year. There is a very generous compensation package for those who can achieve it, but mainly if you are lucky enough to join the meritocracy that get the leads worth pursuing. It's a shame. This company should be twice as big as it is. I've seen a lot of great sales people leave because of the environment, the intimidation, the micro-management, the many inefficiencies. There are way too few people becoming successful here.

Advice to Senior ManagementRead "Principle Centered Leadership" by Stephen Covey. Have a vision and share it, so that those on the front line can get excited about it, and want to follow you in to battle with a purpose in mind. Maybe the leadership at HP can teach you some things after the acquisition. They will never tolerate what goes on now. Best wishes!

    It's all "Pretend"..

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Pleasanton, CA

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros: Starting pay is usually fair. Local management tries to motivate and lead… Cons: Products are not designed, coded and tested. They are coded and deployed. Huge amounts of re-work. Upper management likes to claim… Advice to Senior Management: Pass this mess on to actual managers and leaders to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
