    Pros

    Great opportunity to gain experience. After working here, any other job will seem like a cake-walk. An amazing place to work for the soul-less sycophant or if you have great salesmanship skill and want to make a ton of money.

    Cons

    No feedback on your work or abilities, unless of course you really screw up- then you are essentially annihilated with verbal abuse and destructive criticism. Marketing exceeds capabilities. AE's not always paid full commission despite doing the job required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect. The paranoia of senior management and poor treatment of account executives is amazing- tell us how to succeed at Autonomy rather than how to fail, and you might see more success.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    The matrix structure means nobody has full control or knowledge of my day-to-day activities. There is freedom as far as what hours I work and what projects I spend my time on. In general, there is not a lot of structure and very little guidance is provided. It's expected that you will figure out what works and get it done. Lots of fun if you enjoy the challenge of being thrown into a tough situation with no idea what you're doing. Difficult problems, smart people, a constant learning experience.

    Cons

    There is definitely a slave driver mentality with little concern for employees' overall well-being. This results in high turnover as people get burned out. All of the negative comments about the company are based in fact. But most of these conditions can also be positive if you happen to have the attitude and mindset required to fit in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an effort to keep people around. There is a huge loss in efficiency every time we lose someone with irreplaceable knowledge, and this happens far too often.
