    Pros

    Extremely high pay, amazing benefits, free lunch/breakfast on Fridays, freedom to make the job whatever you want it to be. If you want to specialize in X, you can do it. Very, very smart people are Autonomy

    Cons

    No direction from management, no defined job responsibilities, zero knowledge transfer, no raises - EVER (!), remote managers. Requires a college degree and 3.0 GPA to work here, even if you were in college 30 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us some direction, let us make our own decisions, give us regular raises/review/feedback - we have no idea how our performance is stacking up or what direction we should be going in - also TRUST US to make good decisions for the company, it seems like very few hold all the power/decision making abilities.

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    The one and only advantage in working with this company in India, is you get work from home option with laptop. I'm not sure how long this will exists?

    Cons

    Middle level managers in India are taught to say "YES" for everything that senior managers from head offices wants to push. These people don't have enough guts to talk back with their opinions and finally had to play dual game with team members and managers,

    Even if the head of local operations is sacked out from company, there won't be any dis-appointment with the employees, since he does nothing other than just coming to office daily

    No annual or performance appraisal. It would be better to mention No appraisal at all in offer letter.

    Though there were days, employees used to feel very good in being such a company, but after acquisition people felt very bad why did we join this company. Management don't spend even a single minute in the growth of local operations.

    Beware before you join this company as it might lead you to a slave position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not worth mentioning it here, since top management considers Indian managers as slaves

    Indian managers will not stop behaving like slaves.
