I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

very focussed and cost controlled i can see why some might not like it but personally i prefer to be in a fast paced place that's going places. doesn't suit everyone i know

Cons

a lot of strategic decisions are taken centrally - not necessarily bad but can be a bit bruising if you've been used to doing your own thing in the past

Advice to ManagementAdvice

no issues on controlling costs but maybe make the process easier than it is. having said that, continue doing what you're doing because cash is king!

    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!

    I worked at Autonomy

    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 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
