Great Technology, terrible corporate culture

Sales Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Autonomy full-time

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

Nightmare - stay away

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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


Pros: Some great technology and a few decent people have hung on and are to be commended for their perserverance. HP, if it sees… Cons: Absolutely the worst possible management culture imaginable; from top (mostly gone - and rightully so as the news will bear out) to bottom. Managers are… Advice to Senior Management: Replace all levels of legacy Autonomy management and issue a public statement to existing customers that you will be in touch to introduce the HP… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

Run a mile

Sales Director (Former Employee)

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


Pros: HP were able to break-up the kangaroo court that ran… Cons: Products only ever worked with considerable pro services. Management tried to rule through intimidation. Questionable ethics on contract… Advice to Senior Management: My advice to HP is to remove any senior sales management who have been in their roles for more than 3 years. Get a decent CRM… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
