    I enjoyed the pay, but was never trained properly & held to unreasonable production standards.

    Business Development Executive (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

    ProsGreat pay & benefits! Organized sports after work against other company reams here in SF & good morale amongst coworkers. Free catered lunches weekly!

    ConsUpper management has a HUGE disconnect between their employees. The sales/BDA goals are extremely unrealistic. I have led my sales team in all my prior positions, but at this company I never hit my weekly quota, nor did 90% of my peers in my department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know your employees. Spend a day doing what they/we do & see exactly what we are up against & then set production goals based on that. REALISTIC, Attainable Goals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No intent to work hard for this company

    Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee) Sunnyvale, CA (US)

    ProsKnew that working on litigation software was the right business direction

    A great place to work for some, but not what I signed up for

    Technical Consultant (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    Pros- good work life balance
    - excellent project managers from HP recently brought in
    - stable career
    - good line managers

    Cons- There was not a Christmas party this year - the norm before the takeover was for the company to hire a jet, fly us out and put us up in a 5* hotel for the weekend.
    - Free Friday lunch has been cancelled
    - pigeon holed into learning about technologies which are likely to be torn apart and rebuilt over the coming years
    - salary increases are fairly non existent
    - some of the technology is fairly dated.

    Advice to Senior Management- create a graduate scheme with clear learning objectives and cash incentives to stay for X years.
    -hire UI developers to create a cross platform easily configurable UI for IDOL

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Still needs to organize, streamline and sort out product problems

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    Proslots of work flexibility, interesting technology, with a big push and support from the wider HP. great office locations, and a lot of investment in training/personal development

    Constoo many product issues lead to more discussions with irate clients than selling to new ones. too many product divisions and sales groups leads to huge internal collaboration problems. Base compensation below industry average

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
