I worked at Autonomy full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I suppose there are career opportunities at HP if that sort of thing attracts you. Beyond that there's little reason talent would come here anymore. No upside, not part of a growth culture, more changes no doubt yet to come so not sure what horse you'll be riding. Some of the remaining people are great, but sure to leave.

Cons

Ch-ch-changes. It's not the changes per se, but the reality that this is no longer a high-growth, high energy software company. With some luck (mostly) it will become something in HP. More likely it continues to whither, and make no mistake about it that has been happening. It could have been a contender...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's a ship without a captain. No one has a clue what the direction is, and no one cares. People will jump ship with that plunging HP share price.

    I worked at Autonomy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice perks such as Spurs tickets and awesome Christmas parties.

    Cons

    Massive favouritism, steady increase of targets and workload with no recompense at all, incompetant commissions staff consistently making errors and then the company fails to rectify mistakes, policy of zero pay rise even to mirror inflation, company is run through a culture of fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nurture your staff, don't belittle them into being better. Increase targets by all means, but reward this extra work financially. Mistakes happen with regards to commissions, fair enough, but rectify these immediately instead of forcing financial hardship on your staff.
