Not a good company to work for, unless you live to travel

Account Executive (Current Employee)

Prostravel, downtown San Francisco office

Consterrible management communication,
terrible atmosphere,
terrible culture.
No transparency,
no career path,
no praise,

Autonomy has grown very quickly through aquisition. It often scares away or eliminates those in the companies it aquires. This strategy might lead to good balance sheets and cash flow statements, but it does not help create a positive or healthy work atmosphere.

While some people have a good experience (because they are shielded from some senior managers), many do not and wish they could get out or for those who have - had gotten out sooner.

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes founders stay onboard too long, great marketing fluff though

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    I worked at Autonomy


    Pros: Free drinks in the break room. Free lunch on Fridays. A constant employee turnover means… Cons: Once hired, training is nonexistent; you're shown the code and simply told to "be an expert". Documentation for the code manages to be both sparse… Advice to Senior Management: An oppressive atmosphere of fear and ignorance only extracts the minimum amount of work from employees needed to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
