Pros

If you have talent its a greatcompany, best technology unlimited rewards for the stars. Company is grwoing very fast and awards big opions grants to those that suceed. If youa re brifgr you will be surrounded by really smart people.

Cons

if you are mediocre or want 9-5 avoid this company, if you don't like a hot kitchen this is not for you. The company is on a mission and you are either on board or not. People here do amazing things and when there is a crunch hours can be long for a week or two.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more training and as things are moving so fast it would be good to get more updates. Don't be told to put in more process keep it the fun place it is

    Pros

    Une bonne technologie. Un réel potentiel en France, plus important que le marché appelé moteur de recherche.

    Un bon réseau HP.

    A good technology. A real potential in France, bigger than the original market called the search engine.
    Great HP network.

    Cons

    Acquisition par HP, qui ne sait pas ce qu'est la gestion de l'information. HP ne connaît pas le marché d'Autonomy. Cela deviendra une mauvaise acquisition, comme Palm ou EDS.

    De vieux produits (WCM, DAM, gestion de documents...) comparé à la concurrence et aux attentes des clients. Manque de recherche et développement.

    Mauvaise image auprès de nombreux clients français.

    Acquisition by HP which doesn't know what information management is. HP doesn't know the Autonomy market. Will become a bad acquisition like Palm or EDS.
    Old products (WCM, DAM, records management, ...) compared to competitors and customer requests. Lack of R&D.
    Bad image at many French customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recrutez des dirigeants appropriés, avec une formation en gestion de l'information, et non pas juste des dirigeants Excel. De cette façon, ils pourront déterminer la bonne stratégie pour Autonomy.

    Hire relevant managers with IM background, not only excel managers. This way, they'll be able to set the right strategy for Autonomy

    Pros

    Interesting products. With right / smart management can be progress in the future - with out appropriate management way to nowhere.

    Cons

    You will utilize wide range of knowledge and learn well balancing proportion of IT and Telecom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management level very from one to another person. People (employee and managers) playing a lot of "job security" tricks ..
