I worked at Autonomy full-time

Pros

A lot of freedom with your work. No pressure whatsoever. Nice Christmas party.

Cons

Most of the codebase was pure spaghetti code and new grads are just thrown in there without any training or support. Most of the developers seem to be Cambridge geeks with no social skills. I can't think of a single time anyone in my team has greeted me with a 'Hello' in the morning. Very strange...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to change the company culture and support your new grads with training!

    Pros

    The marketing is top-notch. It basically sells itself.

    Cons

    Too many to list. It was a sinking ship even before HP came along, now it's just hit an Iceberg and shattered in pieces!

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Market leading compensation rates - realistic top tier was around 15% commission (on $500k+ worth of deals in a single Q).

    Cons

    No sales support, awful CRM, management and sales reps treated as commodities. Churn and burn environment. NO account ownership - every account is up for grabs, and you'd spend 1/2 your time or more fending off other reps trying to sell the same product to your accounts - potentially from across the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable sales, don't treat them like useless mindless monkeys.
