Pros

The offices at Autonomy are nice. All of the offices across the company are very nice. Most of the people that you interacted with on a day-to-day basis were very talented, dedicated, intelligent and worked very hard.

Cons

The company operates under a fear-and-intimidation style of upper management. They want to make it certain, from the first day on the job, that you know you are dissposable. The most disfunctional company culture I've ever seen.

Advice to Management

I honeslty don't think Upper Management would ever take advice from its employees. But, fear-and-intimidation management styles only get short-term results. I would put more effort into enabling talented employees to do their job and less effort into thinking up ways to squeeze more productivity out of them through threatining their job.

    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 Management

    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!

    Pros

    Scope for career advancement. Interesting projects Definite feel of being on "A mission" Access to senior management at appropriate times

    Cons

    Can be tough If you're not self motivated, don't apply. Better be comfortable with airports and airplanes. Aggressive approach, though this was honestly conveyed up front and evident immeadiatly.

    Advice to Management

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