I have been working at Autonomy

Pros

some good technology, good, smart people, interesting story to tell

Cons

tremendous and unnecessary amount of pressure to make quarterly #'s. Very short sighted. Very bad internal CRM. Lack of customer support and R&D spend.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

please take a longer term view and invest in customer satisfaction, implementation excellence and the sales will come. move to HP's SalesForce.com. Integrate sales force to focus on customers, not specific products. too hard to tell a holistic story

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great marketing - cool message. Great Sales reps. Much better after the HP sale. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    over 90% turnover for a reason. You can sell, but management will take the deal away from you so you don't get the commission. Pricing is not available for sales people on 90% of the products and to get pricing, you have to give up 75% of your commission. Lot's of travel, metrics - 5 face to face a week and 1 proposal. No org chart, limited access to engineers, no white papers. Some of the software works. Run away! Don't stop here.

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working environment with the ability to focus on historical and new accounts

    Cons

    no real sales strategy - treat every deal as tactical. Management can come across as desperate to close any size of deal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start to take a more holistic approach to selling into major accounts and they will take you serious
