Pros

-they hire you based on your post-secondary education, and don't nitpick on whether or not you have the latest certifications or not -free soft drinks + free lunch on fridays -free pizza from time to time -profitable company -a job is a job is a job

Cons

-would like to receive more reviews and feedback from the top -raises and bonuses are very sporadic, but they are generous when they do actually occur

Advice to Management

Let the underlings know from time to time (not just by company memo) that they're doing a good job. Regular pay raises would be nice.

    Pros

    The vision for the IDOL technology is compelling in terms of managing and leveraging unstructured information.

    Cons

    A lot of marketing fluff backed by very little substance. Supported by a skeleton internal organization that only supports the largest opportunities. Majority of customers relying on channel partners for support. Autonomy is clearly banking on first mover status, technology lead and sunk costs to keep customers captive. Predict a wholesale mass exodus of customers and channel partners when competitive offerings are good enough.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point. The Management Team at Autonomy is too busy playing their own game of Survivor and thinks they have all the answers anyway.

    One of the most disappointing organizations, truly a shame how they treat their valuable sales resources.

    Pros

    Incredible technology and demonstrated thought leaders in the area of information retrieval. The markets are kind to this company, with a truly blue chip customer list.

    Cons

    Sales operations are a mess, enterprise software sales professionals beware - the arrogance of upper management is off the charts. They believe anyone can sell the complexity of enterprise software to complex organizations if they have access to simple, generic demonstrations shown over and over again to prospects - build it and they will come!. Consultative sales, teamwork, collaborative environments, access to technical resources, lead generation, product management, product marketing, customer support - are simply ignored with a pervasive attitude throughout the organization of "Oh well, it is what it is". If you like to micro-managed with little support - this is the place to be!

    Advice to Management

    Think about the way you treat the sales professionals ( and the others) in the organization, how this impacts the customers and the long-term ability to cross-sell and up-sell. If you build the right sales support systems, the future is bright. Otherwise the churn and burn attitude will eventually spell doom for this company.
