I worked at Autonomy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good product strategy. If you can sell in this environment, you can make as much money as anyone in the software sales game.

Cons

Abusive management relationship to sales force. Completely obscure pricing policies. "Smash and grab" sales culture. Close the deal at all costs, with no future commitment to customer success or satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your personal affairs in order before reporting to the penitentiary to begin serving your sentence.

    Pros

    Flexible working environment with the ability to focus on historical and new accounts

    Cons

    no real sales strategy - treat every deal as tactical. Management can come across as desperate to close any size of deal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start to take a more holistic approach to selling into major accounts and they will take you serious

    Pros

    Great marketing - cool message. Great Sales reps. Much better after the HP sale. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    over 90% turnover for a reason. You can sell, but management will take the deal away from you so you don't get the commission. Pricing is not available for sales people on 90% of the products and to get pricing, you have to give up 75% of your commission. Lot's of travel, metrics - 5 face to face a week and 1 proposal. No org chart, limited access to engineers, no white papers. Some of the software works. Run away! Don't stop here.
