I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

You work with really smart people on projects that have direct and visible impact on really well known companies and governments.

Cons

It is growing so fast that its not as easy to move around the company like you used to be able to do. Career advancement is slower too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the communication between telecommuters and their managers. Open new offices where demand is growing. Relax some cost controls particularly for consumables.

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    The offices at Autonomy are nice. All of the offices across the company are very nice. Most of the people that you interacted with on a day-to-day basis were very talented, dedicated, intelligent and worked very hard.

    Cons

    The company operates under a fear-and-intimidation style of upper management. They want to make it certain, from the first day on the job, that you know you are dissposable. The most disfunctional company culture I've ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I honeslty don't think Upper Management would ever take advice from its employees. But, fear-and-intimidation management styles only get short-term results. I would put more effort into enabling talented employees to do their job and less effort into thinking up ways to squeeze more productivity out of them through threatining their job.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    very focussed and cost controlled i can see why some might not like it but personally i prefer to be in a fast paced place that's going places. doesn't suit everyone i know

    Cons

    a lot of strategic decisions are taken centrally - not necessarily bad but can be a bit bruising if you've been used to doing your own thing in the past

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no issues on controlling costs but maybe make the process easier than it is. having said that, continue doing what you're doing because cash is king!
