    Pros

    The matrix structure means nobody has full control or knowledge of my day-to-day activities. There is freedom as far as what hours I work and what projects I spend my time on. In general, there is not a lot of structure and very little guidance is provided. It's expected that you will figure out what works and get it done. Lots of fun if you enjoy the challenge of being thrown into a tough situation with no idea what you're doing. Difficult problems, smart people, a constant learning experience.

    Cons

    There is definitely a slave driver mentality with little concern for employees' overall well-being. This results in high turnover as people get burned out. All of the negative comments about the company are based in fact. But most of these conditions can also be positive if you happen to have the attitude and mindset required to fit in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an effort to keep people around. There is a huge loss in efficiency every time we lose someone with irreplaceable knowledge, and this happens far too often.

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    Free Coffee
    Every other Friday is a free breakfast and Lunch. Free use of the microwave. Casual dress code for San Jose

    Cons

    Expectaions are to work you like dogs and in turn you get burned out and leave. Very high turn over.
    They hire straight out of college so they pay low and expect un realisitic goals to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in the mirror and ask if you would want your son or daughter to work here.
    Everything is about making money. No passion on what would make employess happy and perfom better.
