Good products, lousy company to work for

Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Autonomy invests significantly in technology, but it would be hard to find a company that cared for its employees less than Autonomy.

Cons

Really a beat down culture. Senior leadership in Cambridge simply does not care about employees or customers for that matter, and it is obvious.

Advice to Management

You have been successful to date, however it is a common point of discussion amongst employees that the business model at Autonomy simply won't/doesn't scale.

    Thinking is discouraged.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer
    Current Employee - Software Engineer
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people at my office (who are mostly from pre-Autonomy acquisition - not much of a hint at my location) are smart and professional.

    Cons

    Management by intimidation. Problem solving is discouraged. No chance for a raise = no motivation to work, other than, of course, the fear and intimidation and the off chance of getting fired. All decisions are made at UK headquarters, no matter which people/what product are affected by the decisions. Features are sold which don't exist yet, and then engineers are bulldozed into working crazy hours to throw some half-baked solution together on a short time frame, and then harassed when it doesn't work well, but not given the time to fix it, because surprise surprise, some new thing has been sold which doesn't exist yet.

    Advice to Management

    It's not really advice to mgmt. Most mgmt feel like they have their hands tied, except upper mgmt who are self confident jerks. One comment in this forum isn't going to transmogrify the guys at the top into competence.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to work on exciting new technologies, and there are still some very talented folks there

    Cons

    Complete disconnect from HQ in UK, and overall somber mood in the office.

    Advice to Management

    I could write a book on it, but nobody would read it.
