Good team, OK company

Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

I have been working at Autonomy full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat co-workers, interesting product, great clients -- OK company with an average reputation and now part of a legacy company with reputation in question

ConsAutonomy may or not find its way as part of HP -- the parent company is so large and at such a questionable place on its own timeline -- it's hard to see where or in what form Autonomy will be a factor in its life and work

Advice to Senior ManagementConnect with workers with bonuses and in-person conferencing to build loyalty, otherwise attrition will continue and the ideas that could enhance its relevance will go with exiting workers

Quirks but btter than others

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Autonomy full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIf you had talent, drive and an ability to adapt you could do well at Autonomy.

ConsSalary, employee relations and career development for young people were quite bad.

Interesting Company

Account Executive (Current Employee)

I have been working at Autonomy

ProsPhenomenal technology, Diverse service offerings, HP owned, Great whitepapers, collateral, marketing brochures. Products and Services Relevant now with product offerings. Heavily focused and successful in delivering Cloud Solutions.

ConsMetrics Based in a big way, rigid systems that do not provide good workflow for a field rep. No real account ownership outside of certain divisions, Tech Support could be improved, Company being integrated into HP and this creates apprehension for some.

Work which is intellectually engaging at times and offers a flexible schedule but overall a numbing cultural experience.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Autonomy

ProsGenerous vacation is offered. Allows for a relaxed work-lifestyle given that your work schedule can be flexible. Exposure to other product offerings and possible career changes. Employees with a proactive attitude can thrive here. Good stock options or restricted stock units rewarded. Good bonus plan.

ConsAn ambiguous company structure from an employee career growth perspective. No annual salary increases. Additional compensation based on qualitative milestones. Employee review or assessments are not well structured or non-existent in some cases. Impersonal culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide career paths or options for employees. More clarity to the review process for employee performance assessment and its translation to compensation.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
