Disjointed Structure, Poor Incentives, Detached Management, No Culture

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Boston, MA (US)

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

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
