Horrible employer, but with hidden pockets of sanity.

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

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

ProsJob security. Plenty of lateral job mobility for competent employees. Offices in many parts of the world.

ConsWidespread incompetence. Predatory management. Dysfunctional business processes. Starved for resources, because nobody is willing to spend money to make money.

Advice to Senior ManagementMutual trust and repsect is better than fear and bullying. You will retain more quality employees that way, and gain their loyalty. Loyal, competent employees accomplish great things in less time and fewer resources, and you are judged by higher management by the accomplishments of your underlings.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
