    Wanted to make it work, but they seem determined to step all over themselves

    Software Sales (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood at creating a high level vision. An industry legend that you want to see succeed

    ConsLost ability to innovate and execute. Management out of touch with the field...and not interested in addressing the issue.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the field. They have a lot to offer.

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

    Confused

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThere are some very hardworking, knowledgeable and dedicated people at this company and the company is truly trying to turn itself around.

    ConsA sense of direction has not filtered down to employees and the fact that the announced lay offs (27,000) are coming in phases of a period of years has leached the life out of the employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFinish the lay offs now and start the building.

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

    Great brand but more hype than it deserves

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsYou have opportunities to work on different projects overtime and therefore you can learn a great deal if starting out in your career.

    ConsYou don't have a lot of choice in the projects you work on. Review process is quite strange at HP in that you get a performance review from a manager who does not even know you nor has worked with you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to amend the performance review process and do more to help employees grow in their careers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Bad!

    Principal Consultant (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsStarting Salary
    Health Benefits
    Some very nice, caring people in the firm
    Flezible with travel expenses
    Supportive of life issues

    ConsAdvancement Opportunities
    Review Process
    Career Growth
    Pay Raises
    Internal PC Help Desk, OMG! It is terrible process
    Cannot trust everyone
    Mentor / MOR process is a joke, does anyone even call their mentees? ever?!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat people like a number, there are very hard working, high performers that have not received raise in over 10 yrs (i was only there for 5yrs), improve merit and bonus process, it is awful!, the internal pc help desk process is embarassing, the mor process is not existant

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    HP - tough place

    Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat peers and HP does give you a great work/home balance. Working from home was never a problem. Medical, dental and vision benefits are pretty good.

    ConsNo bonus structure to speak of. Very little chance of promotion or raises. Absolutely no feedback od performance. Can be very frustrating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop sending jobs overseas and start giving adequete compensation. It will payoff if you sell HP as the company who hires locally.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Large company with no place to go!

    Solution Architect (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsFlexible work hours, home office based, good health care package are pretty much the only things left at Hewlett Packard.

    ConsLow Pay, no raises (after 4 years of being with the company), bad upper management decisions, no real room for growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your messaging straight and lead by example. All of the VPs at the company are sucking it dry and not giving an equal distribution down the ranks.

    Assurance but no upside potential

    Senior Principal (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIn current economic times it does seem to offer some level of assurance, but one must still perform. Also, the HP brand does still carry some weight in the marketplace.

    ConsThere is no clear connection between performance and reward. The opposite seems to be happening. We have been told that while there are high performance expectations there are no expectations for compensation. I literally do not know how much money I could make if I worked harder or did a better job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a clear compensation program that ties specific (and business-specific) benchmarks to compensation. What is strange is that some organizations (such as Sales and even the CEO) do have specific comp plans, but not true of other members of staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
