    Pros

    Lots of change and opportunities on the horizon and several groups working on several projects at once means it never gets boring.

    Cons

    Big company cons, such as being slow-moving/inflexible and bureaucratic.

    Pros

    I'm not exactly sure what went on at this job site but it's very interesting and I'm also I think that if you put your mind to it you can do it

    Cons

    didn't really like it here because the pay was horrible but if you don't mind making less money then you'll be perfectly fine but it's just that

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Praised for positive contributions. Challenging

    Cons

    The workload can be very stressful with little incentive to work as hard as we have to in order to keep up. Told every year that raises will most likely not happen again.

    Advice to Management

    Happier employees will decrease such high turnover rates

    Pros

    It is great working for a company that makes really good technology and getting to use it. The are a lot of opportunities for learning on the job and ending up with great experience. HP and a number of the companies it has acquired used to be great places to work and there are still remnants of this scattered about the company if you are lucky enough to find it. There is a wide range of benefits, which taken as a whole are pretty good. But when looked at individually are good but not great.

    Cons

    Upper management appear to have a direction for the company. However, they are typical 1 percenters where their take, the market and stockholders are what really matter. The concerns of the employees is not on their radar. Work conditions are subject to management whims, such as doing away with telework and forcing people to move to keep their jobs. There are no career ladders or built in advancement for employees, rather employees must advance by finding other opportunities. In the long term, year over year, pay increases do not keep up with inflation and typically do not cover the increase in the employees portion of the benefits package.

    Advice to Management

    Step back and realize the employees are just as important as you are. Follow the gold rule. It works better when all boats rise together.

    Pros

    HP has established itself as a market leader in it's main areas with PC, Printing and Enterprise Services. Salaries and bonuses are reasonable. Company split may help improve things in certain areas, but the long term outlook remains to be seen.

    Cons

    Like most companies, it's too large to really be innovative or a game-changer. Their main industry is also more of a commodity market, so there is less room for revenue growth and innovation.

    Pros

    For a large company, a little better than average.

    Cons

    Two classes of employees: those in a line of business and those [second class citizens] in the "Horizontals" (HR, IT, Finance, Legal). Different compensation systems. Horizontals are entirely focused on cost reduction to conform to industry metrics, with the predictable result that processes are simply moved from horizontal to vertical. The horizontal function then looks good; upper mgmt thinks they are reducing costs but really the costs are just being moved around. Also re cost reduction, whole processes are moved to low cost locations - euphemistically (and insultingly!) called "centers of excellence". Costs DO go down, but the processes become frozen in time, being performed in exactly the same way as when they were taken over. Employees in Bangalore, Cyberjaya, etc. are not trained (nor paid sufficiently) to be qualified to modify the process as needed.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the (Mark Hurd era) carve out of the horizontal functions. They should be aligned with the businesses they support.
