I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

some good technology, good, smart people, interesting story to tell

Cons

tremendous and unnecessary amount of pressure to make quarterly #'s. Very short sighted. Very bad internal CRM. Lack of customer support and R&D spend.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

please take a longer term view and invest in customer satisfaction, implementation excellence and the sales will come. move to HP's SalesForce.com. Integrate sales force to focus on customers, not specific products. too hard to tell a holistic story

    Pros

    The job provides a decent lifestyle and interesting challenging work. Awesome people that hold the teams together.

    Cons

    I don't have anything particularly new to say compared to the present reviews. I can see truth in most of the issues raise, but wonder if it's really that different to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looking forward to see what magic HP can bring. I am very hopeful that Meg Whitman sees the challenge of transforming the business from ones that driven by sales to one that driven by customer (and hopefully employee) satisfaction.

    Pros

    I suppose there are career opportunities at HP if that sort of thing attracts you. Beyond that there's little reason talent would come here anymore. No upside, not part of a growth culture, more changes no doubt yet to come so not sure what horse you'll be riding. Some of the remaining people are great, but sure to leave.

    Cons

    Ch-ch-changes. It's not the changes per se, but the reality that this is no longer a high-growth, high energy software company. With some luck (mostly) it will become something in HP. More likely it continues to whither, and make no mistake about it that has been happening. It could have been a contender...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a ship without a captain. No one has a clue what the direction is, and no one cares. People will jump ship with that plunging HP share price.
