Pros

Autonomys IDOL Technologie und die Produkte, die darum herum entwickelt wurden, sind wirklich wettbewerbsfähig, besonders rund um E-Discovery und die Lösungen zur Datenverwaltung. Ihr Marketing war immer sehr gut, fantastisches Material, gute Demos usw. Auch die Unterstützung durch die Pre-Sales-Abteilung war außergewöhnlich stark.

Autonomy'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.

Cons

Die Unternehmenskultur war die schlimmste, die mir je begegnet ist. Menschen wurden nur unter dem Gesichtspunkt von Zahlen betrachtet, das obere Management hörte niemals auf irgendetwas, das von jemandem gesagt wurde, der nicht zu ihrem "Club" gehörte (der z.B. zumindest aus Cambridge kam). Die Vorgesetzten schrien die Mitarbeiter regelmäßig an, beschimpften sie usw. - ein absoluter Albtraum

The 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 ManagementAdvice

Gott sei Dank hat das obere Management das Unternehmen vollständig verlassen, seit es von HP aufgekauft wurde. Das neue Management sollte den Mitarbeitern ganz klar mehr Respekt entgegen bringen. Außerdem drehte sich der "internationale" Ansatz ausschließlich um GB und die USA. Jeder andere Teil des Geschäfts (regional) wurde übersehen. Das Management sollte anderen Regionen viel mehr Aufmerksamkeit schenken, weil es dort unerschlossenes Potential gibt.

thankfully 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.

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company with a group of employees that are very energising to work among. I joined prior to the acquisition, and have seen so much change throughout the whole organisation, almost entirely for the better. A solid product set with a genuinely exciting story to tell. It's given me opportunities that I would never have had anywhere else.

    Cons

    HP is a very big company, and that inevitably leads to some frustrations. These are probably less problematic for someone joining the company fresh, but it represented quite a shift for existing employees. It can be a lot to get your head round at first, but is something that you can figure out with time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep betting on your people, and keep telling the big story.

    I worked at Autonomy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked on a great sub-team with great people, which was the only reason I stayed as long as I did. Free Friday lunch.

    Cons

    Terrible culture. Micro-managing leadership. Lack of product vision in areas with limited experience. Inconsistent messaging to employees. Ridiculous hiring guidelines that could be overturned at any point by the CTO at the time.
