    I worked at Autonomy full-time

    Pros

    There is a very relaxed attitude within the workplace. This doesn't make for much of a 'work environment' however.

    Cons

    There's often nothing to do, and staff know it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out some structure

    I worked at Autonomy (more than an year)

    Pros

    Honestly can't even think of anything positive of Autonomy, sadly. It had great brand name of Interwoven, people were great

    Cons

    In APAC, it was a nightmare. Past management prior HP acquisition was a total shocker. Poor leadership (locally and globally). Product marketing is half baked. Sales ppl ware asked to perform regardless. Unfortunately, this is not the place to be if you want to contribute to a proper working environment that you could excel in your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and customers.

    A proverbial 'How Not To Manage' a company. Every person is more inept than the last. Zero room for career growth.

    I worked at Autonomy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You aren't held to your ancillary metric of calls so long as you perform the actual task of sourcing meetings.
    Fairly relaxed environment except when management is present.
    Free breakfast Wednesday, free lunch Friday.

    Cons

    You cannot advance within the company and there is zero track for career growth.
    Management is pompous, vindictive and petty. A company of many bads ideas.
    Don't confuse motion with action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. There's no hope for these people. I would say accept input from your staff but that's already in place in a kind of shrewd attempt at feigning interest.

    Pros

    The company has a large data center presence and steady growth.
    As a PM, you get the chance to apply your project management skills to real-world IT projects.

    Cons

    Management is eccentric and acts in a secretive manner.
    One day, your job is going well, and the next day, you're out the door without any explanation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't withhold information from your employees.
