Autonomy should be called Ambiguity, an HP Company

I worked at Autonomy full-time for more than a year

Pros

Salary was decent ....but only because I came from one of many acquisitions.

Cons

NO direction
OVERBEARING micro management.
Weekly ridiculous SMS calls that are a waste of sales time.
Integration with HP....what integration?
Actual process to get a sales order booked is a complete disaster. I could run cross country faster.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get over yourselves!! Start reading these reviews....do you see the stream of people leaving? Should tell you something....

    I worked at Autonomy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It has a good bonus scheme, and the people there were some of the nicest I've worked with.

    Cons

    Awful base salary. I've heard of people not getting raises there, but I managed to get one. That said, it wasn't a very good raise, and it took for me to leave the company to get it.
    Awful management
    Awful software development practice
    No clear career routes
    Sales driven, no care or pride taken in products created

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some pride in the work you produce, and considering your a multi billion software company, get some proper software development practices hammered in to your employees!

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Christmas party, which they are plan on removing this year. Decent bonus, generally nice working environment. Free food on Fridays and drinks everyday

    Cons

    The management never seem to know what's going on down below. The only way to get a pay rise is to quit. The hard work pays off in the short tern, rarely in the long term. Difficult to advance due the the cosy management in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't break promises (raises, visa, travel). You are working you employees to death. Manage your projects better, quality not quantity.
