    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation if your prepared to have no life
    Nice colleagues
    Some capable upper management

    Cons

    - Terrible, incompetent middle management. The best pre-sales/tech have left leaving those who were average to push the pencils. Some have never experienced anything else than Autonomy and are incredibly blinkered.
    - churn and burn culture with grads
    - Virtually no QA
    - projects delivered ad-hoc with slaves/graduates
    - unreasonable hours
    - zero training
    - zero respect
    - poor quality software - try and find a working version of introspect/eas/digital safe/etc.
    - over marketed software (bordering on propaganda)
    - lies/deceit to unsatisfied customers
    - graduates are clueless as have no guidance - experience is irrelevant in engineering i suppose?
    - rushed software for sales based culture
    - zero communication (especially for non UK offices)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out middle management
    Pray customers dont start asking for references
