I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

People tends to fall into a number of camps... those who've been here years; Those who've joined by acquisition and the remainder new hires. Needless to say those who've been here years fit like a glove... those by acquisition who then leave hate it and those who stay put up with it. New hires either love or hate it mainly dictated by age (not always but in the main).

Cons

run on a tight budget and objectives (which is not a con) but the way its achieved is like boot camp in winter! OK if you're obsessive but stay away if not!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loosen up and fly a little higher and share the profits a bit more with whole company instead of "stars"!!! Could do with more communications and less instructions

    the long & winding road

    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?
