I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Flexible work, remote work, smart co-workers

Cons

Cuts to pay and benefits keep coming to the regular employees, yet stock price is climbing. Those employees without stock performance bonuses (90%) are fed up and leaving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put Employees first, not greed, the HP brand is becoming tarnished with the blood of it's employees.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    flexible work environment.
    still have the job even during the recession.

    Cons

    Lack of integrity and transparancy from the management has creeped in off late.
    Treating employees like a burden.
    No visible career path.
    Promotions based on how well you lick your boss's a$$ rather than performance.
    Lack of direction in company policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to the people of the company and thus by to the company itself. the so called huge paycuts you have taken is nothing more than just an eyewash. you will be faced with huge brain drain once the economy is up.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    It's a job. It pays just below industry average. At the end of the day you get to go home, although you keep working. Some smart people left. Mostly nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Forget "Invent", innovation is actively discouraged. If you are over 50, there's a target painted on your back. If you don't have 20 years with HP "classic", you are dogmeat. If you are part of an acquired company, count on HP management driving your former company into the ground, and decimation of the employees. Terrible morale! Rewards go up exponentially with closeness to CEO level. No rewards below director level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start realizing that a technology company has to treat it's technical talent better. Stop discriminating against senior employees under th guise of cost cutting.
