    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people I worked directly with were the best part of working at HP. But the company as a whole lots its soul.

    Cons

    Since bringing CEO's from outside of HP, people who didn't come up through the ranks and understood and supported the HP culture, the value of the employee as a contributing member of the HP team and the quality of HP products, has all but disappeared. Product directions became unclear and often redirected and caused frustration, in-fighting and secrecy which only created more blockage to business progressing smoothly. Salaries stalled out, profit sharing disappeared. Simple things like office supplies became scarce. I watched one employee purchase their own writing materials when HP stopped providing materials had been available for years. The work environment has gone from sufficient work space, privacy and resources to do the work, to being jammed into noisy, over-crowded, cattle-style pens, creating an unhealthy environment of angry, dishonest, back-biting workers. Employees are no longer assets but a liability, overhead. Long-time employees with product continuity knowledge were viewed as a costly hindrance to the bottom-liners and eliminated through years of layoffs and forced early retirement. Training, compensation and benefits have gone from being best-in-class to minimal or non-existent, unless you are senior management. Benefits have been greatly reduced requiring employees had to pay more for less and lower quality coverage. All this to the benefit of upper management's bonuses and bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are the life blood, heart and soul, of the company, not the bottom line. Find a way to bring back the things that Hewlett and Packard believed in and built their company with, trust and respect of the people who work there at ALL levels. Provide the best resources available to assist your employees be creative, productive and proud to work for HP. Take a look at the old (discarded) HP Way vision and work it back into the culture and the bottom line will follow.
