Good Compensation, Excellent Benefits - But be prepared to work long, hard hours. Communication is poor.

Pros

The work is interesting, the salary is good, the benefits package excellent.

Cons

Many employees are overworked, communication within the company poor, even within individual teams

Advice to Management

More communication, more team-building neccessary. Nurture the new hires - especially the ones straight out of college - more and don't drive them nearly as hard.

    Unprofessional, inexperienced, poor communication, and run similar to a start-up without the excitement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you're an Oxford or Cambridge graduate then you will be accepted here so maybe a good place for a first job. As a sales rep, the pay is good assuming you're gifted with decent leads.

    Cons

    The company culture is very poor, there is no management hierarchy, no employee recognition, zero communication from management, and a default setting of zero trust towards its employees. The organisation has zero management/hierarchy due to lack of trust and therefore any decisions right down to travel approval require endless cycles of administration. No frills travel, expect to fly EasyJet or RyanAir by default and no consideration for employees travelling all day, or having to get out of bed at 4.30am to get an easyjet flight. Cost comes before employee satisfaction. Also, due to the high-attriction rate, there are no domain experts, only generalists which means that each sales or presales employee has to work unnecessarily harder to lack of vision/foresight. Don't expect a BlackBerry, if you want one, then you'll have to buy it yourself, as well as configure it yourself.

    Advice to Management

    1. Incorporate a standard policy of equipment, rather than providing IT professionals with £200 laptops purchased from PC world on an ad-hoc basis. 2. Empower employees (especially presales/sales). 3. Provide BlackBerry's rather than second hand mobile phone devices. 4. Remove the blame culture. 5. Investment & training in employees.

    Maybe a good place for fresh out of college, not for skilled professionals

    Pros

    An interesting place to start your career if fresh out of college

    Cons

    Not a good place for highly skilled professionals No communication from upper management No performance reviews Lack of trust from senior managers R&D driven, if you are not a tech wizard you will be deemed unimportant

    Advice to Management

    Need to stop worrying about monitoring and controlling employees, if you cannot trust the workforce don't hire them. Consider premier organization that are consistently successfull, their employees feel valued and respected and they strive to outperform the competition. The current culture at Autonomy is a complete opposite.
