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).

    Pros

    Great co-workers, interesting product, great clients -- OK company with an average reputation and now part of a legacy company with reputation in question

    Cons

    Autonomy may or not find its way as part of HP -- the parent company is so large and at such a questionable place on its own timeline -- it's hard to see where or in what form Autonomy will be a factor in its life and work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with workers with bonuses and in-person conferencing to build loyalty, otherwise attrition will continue and the ideas that could enhance its relevance will go with exiting workers

    Awful environment for sales

    Current Employee - Regional Sales Manager
    Current Employee - Regional Sales Manager

    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.
