I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

seems to be on the leading edge of technology, company is doing well, good to have job in this economy

Cons

no transparecy, no raises, micro managment, no trust, Complete disconnect from HQ in UK, and overall somber mood in the office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your people, treat them in a fair way. Let the managers manage their own people. Stop the insane SMS calls. Approach your employees in a positive way. I am confident that this will increase the revenue!

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    Great technology suite means that many clients may show interest to learn more about Autonomy products.

    Cons

    If there was a -ZERO- Ranking of companies, Autonomy would be Number One!
    Only Drone Workers need Apply! Intelligent Workers will be "dumbed-down" at Autonomy

    If you are acquired by Autonomy, - run away. If you are considering a job opportunity, - be prepared for hell. If you are an M&A executive of a corporation considering to buy, - just wait until the customers run away and get it pennies for the dollar.
    Autonomy won't care who you are nor your fair balanced ways to improve business. They will go as far to tell you, "we acquired you and not the other way around".
    Abusive-Manage-by-Fear style by Autonomy executives makes the behavior roll down hill. If your manager can't take the heat, be prepared for yelling fear mongering threats such as "do this in 5 minutes or you are fired" or other abusive tactics.
    VP of HR won't do anything about any verbal abuses since they have no power
    Autonomy Management constantly lie and talk in circles. Don't believe anything unless its in writing, and if its in writing, be prepared to have to litigate.
    Everything is recorded including every second of your productivity; including inbound and outbound telephone calls. Outbound calls made to some of Autonomy's largest customers and prospects are never notified their calls are being recorded and low middle-management was told the calls are held for 15 minutes before they are deleted. .
    Autonomy won't give you reviews, so forget about raises
    Be prepared to be micromanaged unlike anything you have ever experienced.
    Everyone is expendable and Autonomy executives actually enjoy saying that.
    Autonomy Executives have told salespeople to 1/ never say we don't do -x- with our product 2/ never say we don't have -x- product or capability 3/ never say we aren't compatible with -x- - and to go against that means you are expendable.
    Customers are fed up with lies, run-around and lack of Autonomy promises.
    Crippling bottleneck of expenses. If you want to expense $50.01 be prepared to have it sent to the UK for approval.
    Upper Management do not have decision making power unless they are one of the ExecutiveGroup-Of-5 in Cambridge, this makes it challenging to accomplish business decisions in a timely manner.
    If you are an independent thinker with fresh ideas to contribute to improve business operations or the bottom line, take your skills and talents elsewhere.
    Autonomy Executives will make it known, they don't care about talent and everyone is expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you cannot reduce the size of your ego, at least learn to take employee suggestions to heart. Unless of course, Autonomy is a front for another line of business.....

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    the compensation is accelerated given both the industry and economic times. The benefits package rivals those of the largest companies on the planet.

    Cons

    be careful what you wish for. there are consequenses for the compensation being as generous as it is - you are treated as a replaceable cog in a large wheel. zero consideration is given to quality of life concerns. you are expected to start sprinting and run until you fall. there is no career path at autonomy, only hightened stress, abusive management, and high pay if successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    autonomy will fail if it does not leverage its existing base of accounts for cross selling and up selling opportunities.
