I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

create new code that actually gets to see the light of day (you won't appreciate this point unless you've gigged in a prehistoric valley company); great travel; young environment; get to work with some awesome people; little management hierarchy; significant responsibility to get the job done

Cons

quarterly cycles and long days when there's a deadline to hit; sometimes the extra responsibility to take decisions and gets things done is a pressure

Advice to ManagementAdvice

recruit people who can actually leverage the opportunities their given and not be frightened by them; keep the hierarchy 'thin' and ensure the bonuses go to those of us who've earned them!

    Access to senior management at appropriate times

    Cons

    Can be tough

    Aggressive approach, though this was honestly conveyed up front and evident immeadiatly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little time off would have been nice. Even the most dedicated people sometimes need some time off to themselves to recharge the batteries

    Pros

    change itself.... great buzz and very fast paced while very rewarding. Get to work on integrating, supporting and selling award winning new solutions year after year for the biggest best customers in the world. This is a company that rocks and has rocked since start-up (I’ve been here for 10 years so I’m biased I admit).

    Cons

    change itself (depending on your character type), the great paradox about people is that they’re creatures of habit, but when habits become ingrained people go stale like old socks... evidenced by disinterest and a moaning complaining attitude. What people need is ‘change’ to stay interested, motivated and engaged, but not everyone thrives on ‘change’ because they fear its consequences. So best and the worst things about Autonomy is ‘change itself’ because It’s a constantly changing environment. Lots of people love it but those who fear change hate it and tend to spend their time moaning complaining about it. I’m not saying everything is great… don’t get me wrong, but the benefits of change far outweigh the negatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    we do need to keep recruiting the good people and get rid of the complainers who hate change. Lots more communication of what has changed and what’s going to change would help beyond just the quarterly or so briefings.
