I have been working at Autonomy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The benefits are great. The work can be interesting. Opportunities to travel and diversify work on occasion.

Cons

Disjointed Structure, Poor Incentives, Detached Management, No Culture. Management shows, at best, a tolerance for employees. Desire to increase sales no matter how unreasonable the client's demands.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward people, communicate, and listen. Don't hide in your office or behind your computer. Give employees incentives to increase revenue and stop micromanaging.

    Pros

    some good technology, good, smart people, interesting story to tell

    Cons

    tremendous and unnecessary amount of pressure to make quarterly #'s. Very short sighted. Very bad internal CRM. Lack of customer support and R&D spend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please take a longer term view and invest in customer satisfaction, implementation excellence and the sales will come. move to HP's SalesForce.com. Integrate sales force to focus on customers, not specific products. too hard to tell a holistic story

    Pros

    Flexible working environment with the ability to focus on historical and new accounts

    Cons

    no real sales strategy - treat every deal as tactical. Management can come across as desperate to close any size of deal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start to take a more holistic approach to selling into major accounts and they will take you serious
