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

ProsQuite 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.

ConsSee 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 Senior ManagementScreen 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.

    a terrible environment

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros: Great benefits, can't find a job elsewhere... Cons: No annual reviews/salary adjustments. Raises are "merit based". Take it for what it's worth - most people haven't seen a raise… Advice to Senior Management: Senior Management in Cambridge: 1. Do not boast about how well the company is doing financially if you don't plan to share the profits. … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
