Pros

Autonomys IDOL Technologie und die Produkte, die darum herum entwickelt wurden, sind wirklich wettbewerbsfähig, besonders rund um E-Discovery und die Lösungen zur Datenverwaltung. Ihr Marketing war immer sehr gut, fantastisches Material, gute Demos usw. Auch die Unterstützung durch die Pre-Sales-Abteilung war außergewöhnlich stark.

Autonomy's IDOL technology and the products they built around it are really competitive, specifically around the E-Discovery and Information Managment Solutions. Their marketing had always been very good, fantastic material, good demos, etc. Also the support from the Pre-Sales department has been exceptionally strong.

Cons

Die Unternehmenskultur war die schlimmste, die mir je begegnet ist. Menschen wurden nur unter dem Gesichtspunkt von Zahlen betrachtet, das obere Management hörte niemals auf irgendetwas, das von jemandem gesagt wurde, der nicht zu ihrem "Club" gehörte (der z.B. zumindest aus Cambridge kam). Die Vorgesetzten schrien die Mitarbeiter regelmäßig an, beschimpften sie usw. - ein absoluter Albtraum

The corporate culture had been the worst I every experienced. People were purely looked at from a numbers perspective, senior management would never listen to anything they were told from somebody who was not part of their "club" (i.e. at least Cambridge based). Senior managers would regularly shout at employess, call them names, etc. - absolute nightmare

Advice to Management

Gott sei Dank hat das obere Management das Unternehmen vollständig verlassen, seit es von HP aufgekauft wurde. Das neue Management sollte den Mitarbeitern ganz klar mehr Respekt entgegen bringen. Außerdem drehte sich der "internationale" Ansatz ausschließlich um GB und die USA. Jeder andere Teil des Geschäfts (regional) wurde übersehen. Das Management sollte anderen Regionen viel mehr Aufmerksamkeit schenken, weil es dort unerschlossenes Potential gibt.

thankfully the senior management has completely left since the acquisition by HP. The new management should clearly pay more respect to their employees. Also the "international" approach has been purely around the UK and the USA. Any other part of the business (regionally) was overlooked. Management should pay a lot more attention to other regions, since there is untapped potential.

    Pros

    Honestly can't even think of anything positive of Autonomy, sadly. It had great brand name of Interwoven, people were great

    Cons

    In APAC, it was a nightmare. Past management prior HP acquisition was a total shocker. Poor leadership (locally and globally). Product marketing is half baked. Sales ppl ware asked to perform regardless. Unfortunately, this is not the place to be if you want to contribute to a proper working environment that you could excel in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and customers.

  2. Diverse company although frustrating at times.

    Opportunity to travel. Effective Management.

    Cons

    Some of the less commonly sold products were of poor quality and virtually undocumented.
    Very little formal training.
