Pros

- Good benefits package (health, dental, etc.)
- Core technology is solid
- Decent stock option grants for select few

**Very well-oiled separation process when you quit***

Cons

- Megalomaniacal management
- Terrible, unpredictable bonus plan for many employees
- Generous use of FIBCAMM (Fear and Intimidation-Based Computer-Aided Micro Management)
- Growth through acquisition w/little understanding of businesses acquired
- Steady loss of talent and intellectual capital in units outside core business
- Financial success in spite of myriad flaws has convinced management there's no need to change or adapt

Advice to Management

Doesn't matter--they don't want, wouldn't heed it, and would never accept it for what it is--honest feedback. They are likely very proud of the fact that Autonomy has the worst rating of any company on this site--proof that only the fittest will survive. So be it.

    Not a good place to work, and not enough substantive and meaningful work, run by fear and trembling

    It is all about the company and very little about the employee.

    Pros

    Management knows the way to get the best profit for the company. Great sales force that gets the products sold to the customers.

    Cons

    Non-Silicon Valley working culture. One way communication from the top. Recognition is minimal. No performance review. Employees are not shared with the company direction and vision. Upper management doesn't seem to be interested in employee feedback. Employees are assigned with tasks as it goes and told to work on them with no question asked, and yet, direction changes often and is confusing.

    Advice to Management

    Besides selling the product, spend some time to listen more to all employee feedback.
