    Pros

    outstanding technology. significant rewards for some. lots of great customers. awesome people from more countries and backgrounds you can count on any map!

    Cons

    be prepared to suffer the long a winding road if you arenâ??t one of the well-educated â??elliteâ?? from the very few top universties from which management choose â??only the bestâ??. this obviously short sighted policy means lots of great people just donâ??t make the grade

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    its hard to criticise financial success or great products i know but not everyone is a green beret performer. as someone else on this site has already said not everyone has the same "take that hill" abilities so maybe give the tougher challenges to the tougher people and share the opportunities around a bit more?

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    The perks, food, transportation and technology being the main ones, and there are lots of things that make it a geek's paradise. It looks good on your resume â?? very successful cash rich and growing quarter on quarter. The chance to meet some very bright and interesting people every day though there is heavy emphasis on education. It's cool to be on the inside and learn about new products the top organisations are now usingâ?¦ particularly in legal space

    Cons

    If you have a PhD from a top university you can do some fascinating things, but if you donâ??t then youâ??ll find yourself swimming upriver very slowly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember not everyone has a brain road tested in Stanford
