I worked at Autonomy full-time (less than a year)

Pros

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

Cons

Products 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 ManagementAdvice

My 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

    Pros

    Technology is unreal. Good comp plan.

    Cons

    No territories and very few and very reluctant technical resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Structure the sales model and hire and train pre-sales tech resources.
