    Unique challenging culture but not for someone interested in quality of life

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    Autonomy tends to hire intelligent, hard working employees that are willing to adapt to the unique corporate culture. Employees will be exposed to many aspects of the business and provided with a lot of responsibility and opportunity to prove oneself.

    Cons

    Autonomy is a very reactionary company that puts more time and money into marketing and corporate perception than it does into product development and customer care. In general there is a culture of winning at all costs with little concern about business ethics or employee welfare. Employees will be expected to stretch the truth or outright lie in order to win a deal, which seems to happen more often than not.

    Having joined the company through an acquisition, I can say that it's an uphill battle for anyone not hired directly by Autonomy. It is assumed that you are beneath Autonomy's standard of excellence until you prove otherwise (if you're even given the chance). I have seen the majority of my coworkers be let go or driven out with no plan to hire replacements, leaving the remaining employees to pick up the work. If you don't take a big gulp of the Kool-Aid and step in line you won't last long at Autonomy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some concern and proactive effort in improving the quality of life for employees. Initiate some sort of performance review to allow for feedback to flow both directions. Compensation adjustments, bonuses, and option grants have no rhyme or reason to them and seem completely subjective.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    outstanding technology. significant rewards for some. lots of great customers. awesome people from more countries and backgrounds you can count on any map!

    Cons

    be prepared to suffer the long a winding road if you arenât one of the well-educated âelliteâ from the very few top universties from which management choose âonly the bestâ. this obviously short sighted policy means lots of great people just donât make the grade

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    its hard to criticise financial success or great products i know but not everyone is a green beret performer. as someone else on this site has already said not everyone has the same "take that hill" abilities so maybe give the tougher challenges to the tougher people and share the opportunities around a bit more?
