I have been working at Autonomy

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    The technology is good and the vision for where the technology could go is ambitious. Its hard to think of anything else positive to say!

    Cons

    There is no feeling of being part of a team, as an employee you don't feel valued, just expendable. It seems senior management take the attitude "its a privalage to work here so put up with everything else". Even people who are doing well are not happy. There is literally no investment in you as an employee to improve your skills, unless its training on the products!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. Saying "people are the most important asset" is a lie.

    I worked at Autonomy

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
