Management brands San Jose location as toxic

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

I have been working at Autonomy

Prosaverage benefits; convenient location (soon to change); nice revenue growth (but no profit sharing or trickle down tow employees)

ConsNever work for a company where the management told people at a location they are toxic and would not allow new hire to work there.
No performance review, but people are fired for "performance reasons" at discretion of management with few hours notice -- apparently done every 6 months.
No salary review -- instead people are told they will received "sky bonus" at discretion of management.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou say you want to hire best and brightest -- then give them a reason to work there

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
