I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

Diverse range of products, and wide variety of customers.
Lots of travelling, offers a good lifestyle for people who manage their time.
People seem to be compensated well.

Cons

Lots of travelling.
A lot of the skills you need have to be picked up on the spot, and quite a bit of improvisation is needed to complete the task.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure training for the necessary work is given before deploying projects, this will allow the project to be completed to higher standards.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
