I have been working at Autonomy full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The marketing is top-notch. It basically sells itself.

Cons

Too many to list. It was a sinking ship even before HP came along, now it's just hit an Iceberg and shattered in pieces!

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

    Pros

    Came for aggressive comp plan and thought I knew about the culture walking into this role but boy was I was wrong. It was everything and more and that's not good.

    Cons

    Everything you've read about this company is 100% true. Win at all costs is the motto here. Do anything/say anything to get the deal and let someone else worry about the customer satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that HP owns the company I'm sure the toxic culture is being driven out of the Autonomy organization. To the current and former Autonomy management team, check your ego at the door, treat people like you want to be treated, and be honest (to your employees and your customers).

    Current Employee - Regional Sales Manager

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Market leading compensation rates - realistic top tier was around 15% commission (on $500k+ worth of deals in a single Q).

    Cons

    No sales support, awful CRM, management and sales reps treated as commodities. Churn and burn environment. NO account ownership - every account is up for grabs, and you'd spend 1/2 your time or more fending off other reps trying to sell the same product to your accounts - potentially from across the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable sales, don't treat them like useless mindless monkeys.
