    Pros

    Getting paid to arrive in work when i feel like it, play pool or stand around chatting whilst drinking free coffee, having been given any direction in weeks no one seems to know what's going on.

    Cons

    The departure of Mike Lynch and he vision he was the reason i joined Autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Most employees i speak to have already placed their CV's with recruiters.

    Good start, but more management needs to go.

    Pros

    By and large Autonomy has a talented group of individuals, who with the right structure could turn things around.

    Cons

    Sales - They hire too many sales people and don't properly train them. The effect is that they are effectively massively unproductive, as they are constantly forced to reinvent the wheel. Technology - While Autonomy has talented engineers there is no focus and no plan. The result is that everyone goes in a million directions with tactical drivers and no strategic focus (efforts focused on break/fix and not on moving the products forward organically) Services - The implementation team are largely former presales folks and that hurts the organization as each implementation takes far more resources than competitors in the space. Management - Biggest issue with the management team is a lack of experience, which when combined with success has created a culture where the wrong policies are ingrained because they are incorrectly associated with that success.

    Advice to Management

    Sales - Align sales staff with HP selling structure (Regional/Matrix management) and hire less sales people and more sales support (Sales Ops, Solutions Engineers, etc) to make sure they are successful. Technology - There needs to be product management driving development with short and long term road maps. After all how can we expect progress if the engineers don't know where we should be headed. Services - Here the autonomy services team should be integrated under the HP/EDS services leadership. Management - It may sound harsh but the sacking of Lynch, Kanter, Menell, et al was a great moving in the right direction, but it won't be fixed until all of the historic leadership who believe in the "Autonomy Culture" are gone. Generally 95% of the Autonomy workforce is sticking around to see what HP does integration wise, but once its clear that HP integration isn't happening short term there will be a mass Exodus.
