    You will utilize wide range of knowledge and learn well balancing proportion of IT and Telecom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management level very from one to another person. People (employee and managers) playing a lot of "job security" tricks ..

    Convince HP to start investing in the products, otherwise you will simply fall further behind

    I worked at Autonomy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The group I was in did a lot of new development, using the latest tools. There was a caf and gym onsite.

    Cons

    My company was acquired by Autonomy prior to the HP acquisition. After listening to the Autonomy brass speak, it came as no surprise that HP later uncovered fraud and accounting tricks. We were told Autonomy does not give raises. We started several new development projects, which required nights and weekends, only to see them scrapped a few months later when the winds of change blew through. They had a few layoffs, then decided to let the best and brightest self-select themselves elsewhere through attrition. The result was a steady exodus, and a huge swath of empty cubes and offices. Not too encouraging.
