It's all "Pretend"..

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Pleasanton, CA (US)

I worked at Autonomy

ProsStarting pay is usually fair.
Local management tries to motivate and lead but has no real authority and ability to make local decisions.

ConsProducts are not designed, coded and tested. They are coded and deployed. Huge amounts of re-work. Upper management likes to claim that Autonomy can do anything in 3 weeks. Agreed, as long as it is not really expected to work.
Company products are categorized by "Power", "Protect" and "Promote". All employees know that the biggest category is "Pretend"..

Advice to Senior ManagementPass this mess on to actual managers and leaders to fix..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros: Extremely high pay, amazing benefits, free lunch/breakfast on Fridays, freedom to make the job whatever you want it to… Cons: No direction from management, no defined job responsibilities, zero knowledge transfer, no raises - EVER (!), remote managers. … Advice to Senior Management: Give us some direction, let us make our own decisions, give us regular raises/review/feedback - we have no idea how our performance is stacking up… More
