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

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The work can be interesting. Opportunities to travel and diversify work on occasion.

    Cons

    Disjointed Structure, Poor Incentives, Detached Management, No Culture. Management shows, at best, a tolerance for employees. Desire to increase sales no matter how unreasonable the client's demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people, communicate, and listen. Don't hide in your office or behind your computer. Give employees incentives to increase revenue and stop micromanaging.
