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

Pros

HP were able to break-up the kangaroo court that ran the company

Cons

Products only ever worked with considerable pro services.
Management tried to rule through intimidation.
Questionable ethics on contract negotiations.
Lots of forgotten promises.
Very few pre and post sales engineers.
A cut and run mentality on closing deals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to HP is to remove any senior sales management who have been in their roles for more than 3 years.
Get a decent CRM tool.
Get a price list that reps can quote from.
Get a proper pro services organization.
Question why you paid $10bn+ for such a sham of a company

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good salary
    Some very nice people
    Good Christmas parties

    Cons

    Old school aggressive sales flogging tired tech that gets buggier and less stable with every release. There's no righting this ship Mr Youngjohns, give it up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold your hands up and admit you're out your depth managing technical projects.
