Very hands off

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

I worked at Autonomy full-time

ProsA lot of freedom with your work. No pressure whatsoever. Nice Christmas party.

ConsMost of the codebase was pure spaghetti code and new grads are just thrown in there without any training or support. Most of the developers seem to be Cambridge geeks with no social skills. I can't think of a single time anyone in my team has greeted me with a 'Hello' in the morning. Very strange...

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to change the company culture and support your new grads with training!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
