Not a good place to work, and not enough substantive and meaningful work, run by fear and trembling

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    Good technology, but noted it is over-hyped by marketing. Qualified academics in Computer Science can validate that there is nothing ground shattering about Autonomy's technology; in fact, some of the methodology is archaic relative to recent research work.

    Cons

    Autonomy is one of those companies who leech new talent to keep operational costs low. The company thrives on hardworking youth, burns them out, and leaves them with little reward. The company is a moral hazard until they've been rightfully hammered with a class action lawsuit. Trust me-recent graduates- this isn't a company that you want to open a career to. The other feedbacks tell the same story over and over again. Look for another company with the right management, culture and attitude.

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    Above industry average compensation, good benefits, core product is strong, good brand name recognition

    Cons

    unusually closed corporate culture, minimum communication from senior and mid-management to the field team, very tactical field management, no sales territories, multiple reps will be frequently chasing the same account

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By adopting more mainstream management and field organization structure you can grow this business much further.
