It is all about the company and very little about the employee.

Pros

Management knows the way to get the best profit for the company. Great sales force that gets the products sold to the customers.

Cons

Non-Silicon Valley working culture. One way communication from the top. Recognition is minimal. No performance review. Employees are not shared with the company direction and vision. Upper management doesn't seem to be interested in employee feedback. Employees are assigned with tasks as it goes and told to work on them with no question asked, and yet, direction changes often and is confusing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Besides selling the product, spend some time to listen more to all employee feedback.

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    Above industry average compensation, good benefits, core product is strong, good brand name recognition

    Cons

    unusually closed corporate culture, minimum communication from senior and mid-management to the field team, very tactical field management, no sales territories, multiple reps will be frequently chasing the same account

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By adopting more mainstream management and field organization structure you can grow this business much further.

    Pros

    -they hire you based on your post-secondary education, and don't nitpick on whether or not you have the latest certifications or not
    -free soft drinks + free lunch on fridays
    -free pizza from time to time
    -profitable company
    -a job is a job is a job

    Cons

    -would like to receive more reviews and feedback from the top
    -raises and bonuses are very sporadic, but they are generous when they do actually occur

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the underlings know from time to time (not just by company memo) that they're doing a good job.

    Regular pay raises would be nice.
