I have been working at Autonomy full-time (less than a year)

Pros

most of crazy behavior is gone, the people who are left are actually very nice to work with. HP is putting in place new management who care more about people and communication

Cons

still a long way to go, some processes still not streamlined

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    None. They bought our company and destroyed it. They didn't care about customers and cared less about employees.

    The only "pro" is that HP have purchased us and everything is better. It was almost an immediate turn around in terms of message. Focus is back on customer satisfaction and it's very clear that employees are considered valuable again.

    Everything

    Cons

    I was always proud of how much my company cared about our customers and employees and then Autonomy bought us. They clearly didn't care about our customers at all. Everything was about "new license revenue". So sorry if you were already a customer.

    They treated employees like a commodity that could be replaced on a whim. It was truly a terrible few years until HP purchased us and saved us from the horrible policies and behaviour of Autonomy.

    Just get the deal signed - screw the customer after the sale.

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

    Pros

    Great vacation allowance. Free lunch Fridays.
    Maybe HP can fix some of the mess?

    Cons

    Everything else.
    No review/raise process. Impossible to get promoted.
    Unethical sales tactics like I've never seen anywhere else.
    Support and services left holding the bag with a poor quality product that is next to impossible to implement and support.
    Secret engineering team that nobody is allowed to actually talk to. You NEVER receive feedback on any bugs submitted unless you are working with the latest hot customer (the one with the most new business riding on the success of your project). Although I can't imagine they actually get any repeat customers. I think Lynch and Co. knew they were running out of suckers and that they had no good reference customers left and that's why they sold.
    Everything is a fire drill - even planned implementations with a long sales cycle are staffed at the last minute. PS Consultants are shipped from one project to another in a big circle as each new customer becomes frustrated with the lack of knowledge and poor quality products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep purging all of the Autonomy middle management and horrible anti-customer anti-support, anti-employee policies.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
