Horrible employer, but with hidden pockets of sanity.

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

Pros

Job security. Plenty of lateral job mobility for competent employees. Offices in many parts of the world.

Cons

Widespread incompetence. Predatory management. Dysfunctional business processes. Starved for resources, because nobody is willing to spend money to make money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mutual trust and repsect is better than fear and bullying. You will retain more quality employees that way, and gain their loyalty. Loyal, competent employees accomplish great things in less time and fewer resources, and you are judged by higher management by the accomplishments of your underlings.
