    Pros

    Opportunity to travel. Effective Management.

    Some of the less commonly sold products were of poor quality and virtually undocumented.

    Pros

    Many good people, low pressure, decent pay

    Cons

    Lack of product investment, several layoffs, hard to know what's next and when

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, if you are going to kill a product - Just do it !!

    Pros

    Hp has good brand recogntion

    Cons

    Compared to other software firms

    No Strong direction or ethos
    Variable pay and reward structure seems fairly negligible
    Very bureaucratic and process heavy for everything
    Little day to day perks, subsidized food, coffee cups and etc

    Advice to Management

    Actions matter, talking about investing in the business is more then stock buy backs and layoffs. The software is lacking true identity and vision, it is just figuring out new buzz words to try to sell yesterdays news

    Pros

    Interesting products. With right / smart management can be progress in the future - with out appropriate management way to nowhere.

    You will utilize wide range of knowledge and learn well balancing proportion of IT and Telecom.

    Advice to Management

    Management level very from one to another person. People (employee and managers) playing a lot of "job security" tricks ..

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Upper 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 Management

    Get 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.
