I have been working at Autonomy

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Autonomy

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    great position in the market
    industry leading comp plan
    blue chip client list
    recession proof markets
    management will put whatever resources onto a project needed for success
    great place for reps who are confident selling 7 figure deals

    Cons

    micromanagement
    support for stagnant customers spotty making long term upselling difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put foot on the accelerator vis.a.vis R&D, company has leadership in many markets but needs to continue to innovate to be relevant.
