Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Good Technology
Nice SF office location but way too many in the office

Cons

No set account lists, territories, etc. Reps are out running into each other and management thinks this is a good business practice.
HP bought them but this IS NOT HP! The culture here is toxic, nobody trusts anyone, technical resources are very limited. You better have a deal on the table before you can get any resources.
Very strict and stringent daily metrics that must be met.. 5 face to face meetings a week, 1 proposal a week.
NO Training, Whitepapers aren't white papers they are marketing briefs, nobody will explain the technology..It's a secret!
Worst environment and people I have ever been apart of!
Unbelieveable expense management system

Advice to Management

HP executives PLEASE get rid of the Autonomy management team, put rules in place on how to do business with current HP companies and HP account teams.
Take a REAL look at their current business practices, you would be shocked!

    Pros

    some smart people, good benefits, decent balance of work/life

    Cons

    Horribly managed from top down, poor morale, weak middle and senior management; once great company, now one step above a professional sweat shop.

    Advice to Management

    Quit the lip service "employees are first" BS and overhaul the company, with employees front and center. Revamp co strategy from top down, refocus strategy on the high margin products, revamp sales/marketing...add new programs to build employee morale.
