Pros

Good product strategy. If you can sell in this environment, you can make as much money as anyone in the software sales game.

Cons

Abusive management relationship to sales force. Completely obscure pricing policies. "Smash and grab" sales culture. Close the deal at all costs, with no future commitment to customer success or satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your personal affairs in order before reporting to the penitentiary to begin serving your sentence.

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (more than an 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.
