Great Technology, terrible corporate culture

Sales Manager (Former Employee)

ProsAutonomy's IDOL technology and the products they built around it are really competitive, specifically around the E-Discovery and Information Managment Solutions. Their marketing had always been very good, fantastic material, good demos, etc. Also the support from the Pre-Sales department has been exceptionally strong.

ConsThe corporate culture had been the worst I every experienced. People were purely looked at from a numbers perspective, senior management would never listen to anything they were told from somebody who was not part of their "club" (i.e. at least Cambridge based). Senior managers would regularly shout at employess, call them names, etc. - absolute nightmare

Advice to Senior Managementthankfully the senior management has completely left since the acquisition by HP. The new management should clearly pay more respect to their employees. Also the "international" approach has been purely around the UK and the USA. Any other part of the business (regionally) was overlooked. Management should pay a lot more attention to other regions, since there is untapped potential.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pretty from the outside. Nightmare on the inside.

    Business Development (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time

    Pros: good free lunch on Fridays. The product is well marketed and when it works… Cons: *High attrition. The ones who saw the disaster coming left and the others who chose to stay are struggling to transition with little to no… Advice to Senior Management: Perform a role/performance audit on the legacy Autonomy executives which have seen their departmental staff leave in droves. The ship is being abandoned and it's… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
