Pros

Some great technology and a few decent people have hung on and are to be commended for their perserverance. HP, if it sees it through, will create better possibilities but it will be a while to figure out how to do this - I wish them luck.

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 used to lying to employees to get deals done with favored reps. Salesfolk hired for their rolodexes - once this is exhausted and they figure out they are selling questionable products/support and are jeopardizing their relationships and integrity (about 3-6 months in), they quit. Extremely caustic treatment and outright boldface lying to the very people who interface with the customer so customer satisfaction low and reputation shot. HP stuck trying to unwind this nettle of lies which is a shame because the people who represented some very fine products deserved better - but that wasn't the goal of Mike Lynch and company, was it?

Advice to 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 way of doing of doing business; the customer-centric way. All should be removed to rid the culture of the toxic treatment of the customers and employees.

    Pros

    Autonomy does have some outstanding software products that are good and provide value when they are installed and configured correctly..... Very nice co-workers that will try to help you

    Cons

    *Senior leadership does not care about the satisfaction of their customers. *They acquire companies, integrate their IDOL technology, significantly reduce the development and support staff, but increase the sales force too large and very few sales people make any good money. *Terrible customer support * Sales leadership regularly in group meetings unprofessionally tears sales reps apart verbally.... a real team moral killer. * The fastest revolving door of good sales people that I have ever witnessed. * Sales leadership is very direct and aggressive about driving the sales teams to just close the business, take the money and run, whether the customer will benefit from the software or not. * Many unhappy customers who admit that after they purchased the software they felt abandoned. *Senior leadership only focused on selling the business to cash out which they did to HP who I believe will regret their decision

    Advice to Management

    HP management needs to completely clean house of all senior leadership and completely clean house of all sales leadership and sales managers. They all need to go as soon as possible. The market for their products does not support the size of their current sales staff headcount which needs to be reduced by at least 50% to allow those that remain to make a living. Reinvest in technical support teams to improve customer satisfaction Reinvest in product development to update some of the products which are getting rather old in the tooth from a technology perspective.
