Not a good place to work, and not enough substantive and meaningful work, run by fear and trembling

    I worked at Autonomy

    Pros

    Good technology, but noted it is over-hyped by marketing. Qualified academics in Computer Science can validate that there is nothing ground shattering about Autonomy's technology; in fact, some of the methodology is archaic relative to recent research work.

    Cons

    Autonomy is one of those companies who leech new talent to keep operational costs low. The company thrives on hardworking youth, burns them out, and leaves them with little reward. The company is a moral hazard until they've been rightfully hammered with a class action lawsuit. Trust me-recent graduates- this isn't a company that you want to open a career to. The other feedbacks tell the same story over and over again. Look for another company with the right management, culture and attitude.

    It is all about the company and very little about the employee.

    I have been working at Autonomy

    Pros

    Management knows the way to get the best profit for the company. Great sales force that gets the products sold to the customers.

    Cons

    Non-Silicon Valley working culture. One way communication from the top. Recognition is minimal. No performance review. Employees are not shared with the company direction and vision. Upper management doesn't seem to be interested in employee feedback. Employees are assigned with tasks as it goes and told to work on them with no question asked, and yet, direction changes often and is confusing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Besides selling the product, spend some time to listen more to all employee feedback.
