I worked at Autonomy

Pros

Starting pay is usually fair.
Local management tries to motivate and lead but has no real authority and ability to make local decisions.

Cons

Products are not designed, coded and tested. They are coded and deployed. Huge amounts of re-work. Upper management likes to claim that Autonomy can do anything in 3 weeks. Agreed, as long as it is not really expected to work.
Company products are categorized by "Power", "Protect" and "Promote". All employees know that the biggest category is "Pretend"..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pass this mess on to actual managers and leaders to fix..

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    There are some very smart people working here. Autonomy has interesting core technology and a good story behind it. It continues to grow and is constantly moving.

    Cons

    Autonomy has been swallowing up companies. It doesn't make the best decisions about how to use those resources. Decisions are often made from the top. There is no management structure so communication about important changes are often through the rumor mill.

    Pros

    Fantastic base technology with IDOL.

    Cons

    Antagonistic, punitive management style. Developing and respect for people doesn't take place here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your management style. People are your most important asset. Turnover in excess of 40% will kill your future.
