Will never become a big player because they don't treat employees with respect

I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

HP recently purchased them and appears changes are coming (hopefully to management)
Pay is OK
They have Free Lunch Fridays

Cons

Treat employees poorly
Management is clueless
No advancement opportunities
No HR review process or annual raises (get your money going in because you will never see another dime)
High turnover rate

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a review process for employees and merit increases
It is hard to keep good people if you do not incent them!
For the love of god.... contribute more than $1000 annually to 401K. Most real companies match employees contributions!

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    The only reason Autonomy zantaz survives is that there are some very bright, dedicated people working there.

    Cons

    Absolutely no direction from senior management
    Non supportive environment
    No organization or cohesiveness
    No training
    Class system prevails (college grads vs non-college grads)
    Little or no documentation
    Work is prioritized by the loudest screaming customer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be a serious contendor in the market place you first have to get your own house in order. Start with your culture...there is much to be done.

    Former Employee - Enterprise Account Executive

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    salary is pretty average with health cover

    Cons

    - every sales rep is measured by traffic light - amber and red light pretty much in trouble
    - Only focus on getting revenue, never treat customer as customer
    - Snr management will "bypass" the sales rep and call customer directly to chase deal
    - No org chart, and communication is the worst
    - sales rep are required to learn 10 products from portal without proper knowledge transfer
    - Just don't step into this company. It is the worst I have worked 20 years in IT industry
    - You might get sacked if you speak anything negative about the company product

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employee as your asset and not slave! Let's hope HP might over turn this rubbish company. Most disgrace company
