Pros

Good structured company. For a large company, extremely nimble and supportive towards sales and company goals. Good benefits, compensated well.

Cons

Company does not always communicate well and information sharing is limited. For a technology company, does not use technology in the most efficient manner.

Advice to Management

Need to encourage better communication and sharing across the company. Create a more collaborative model and encourage teamwork in a better fashion.

    Pros

    Autonomy has cutting edge technology, smart employees, good benefits packages, and nice offices worldwide. The company also has an impressive list of customers.

    Cons

    The most dysfunctional technology company I have ever worked for, and I've been in this industry for 15+ years. There is ZERO communication between upper management and the rest of the company. It is basically a customer service culture of "you are not important unless you are spending money with us this quarter" and customers do not matter unless they are buying something in the current quarter. All of the sales reps are internally competing with each other for deals within the same accounts/customers, and this causes many internal conflicts, which never get resolved and someone usually gets screwed unless you are a company "golden boy." The weekly SMS calls are absurd - basically a session of getting yelled at, questioned, and degraded by Sr. Management. Basically, the entire Monday is impossible to do anything due to being "on call" for the SMS call, and heaven forbid you have a meeting with a customer/prospect on that day - according to Autonomy that is not as important as the SMS call and they (management) fully expect you to excuse yourself from customer/prospect meetings to take the SMS call. Management LOVES to micromanage everyone and throw out threats constantly about employees being expendable. Management also loves to pressure sales reps into telling customers "YES" to everything - even though the software many not actually work in a certain way, the answer is always "YES." I feel bad for the customers who are getting lied to and in the end spend lots of $ and getting software that doesn't fully work as it is supposed to. Just a rotten culture from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    You should really try to make an effort to listen to mid level management and other employees more often, maybe they will have a few good ideas every now and then.


  2. Company with aggressive goals but untrusting management

    Pros

    Well rewarded if you work hard with excellent results. However, bonus can be slashed for no reason as well.

    Cons

    No promotions or clear indications of advancement within the company.

    Advice to Management

    None applicable; won't change anything.
