    Dissatisfied

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThere is a very relaxed attitude within the workplace. This doesn't make for much of a 'work environment' however.

    ConsThere's often nothing to do, and staff know it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSort out some structure

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst company ever worked for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsIn 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 Senior ManagementListen to employees and customers.

    Work was challenging and rewarding. However, management is eccentric.

    IT Project Manager (Former Employee) Pleasanton, CA (US)

    ProsThe company has a large data center presence and steady growth.
    As a PM, you get the chance to apply your project management skills to real-world IT projects.

    ConsManagement is eccentric and acts in a secretive manner.
    One day, your job is going well, and the next day, you're out the door without any explanation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't withhold information from your employees.

    Unbelievable Products, marginal management

    Inside Sales (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

    Prosmost powerful black box technology for squeezing maximum value out of corporate knowledge and experience resources.

    ConsVery little flexibility in opportunity management

    Advice to Senior Managementwhy not build a search engine based on IDOL?

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A proverbial 'How Not To Manage' a company. Every person is more inept than the last. Zero room for career growth.

    Inside Sales (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

    ProsYou aren't held to your ancillary metric of calls so long as you perform the actual task of sourcing meetings.
    Fairly relaxed environment except when management is present.
    Free breakfast Wednesday, free lunch Friday.

    ConsYou cannot advance within the company and there is zero track for career growth.
    Management is pompous, vindictive and petty. A company of many bads ideas.
    Don't confuse motion with action.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit. There's no hope for these people. I would say accept input from your staff but that's already in place in a kind of shrewd attempt at feigning interest.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
