Run a mile

Sales Director (Former Employee)

ProsHP were able to break-up the kangaroo court that ran the company

ConsProducts only ever worked with considerable pro services.
Management tried to rule through intimidation.
Questionable ethics on contract negotiations.
Lots of forgotten promises.
Very few pre and post sales engineers.
A cut and run mentality on closing deals.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to HP is to remove any senior sales management who have been in their roles for more than 3 years.
Get a decent CRM tool.
Get a price list that reps can quote from.
Get a proper pro services organization.
Question why you paid $10bn+ for such a sham of a company

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Account Executive (Former Employee)

    I worked at Autonomy full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Autonomy does have some outstanding software products that are good and provide value when… Cons: *Senior leadership does not care about the satisfaction of their customers. *They acquire companies, integrate their IDOL technology, significantly reduce the development and support staff, but… Advice to Senior Management: HP management needs to completely clean house of all senior leadership and completely clean house of all sales leadership and sales managers.
