    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are parts of HP that are still functioning well, but they are getting fewer all the time. It will all depend on your local team, the further up the management chain and the more "Global" you go the more the dysfunction will manifest. It's a good place to get a start if you are a graduate and it has an almost mythological history. Meg is a good CEO with a clear vision.

    Cons

    HP has a forced ranking policy, every year managers are given quotas on what percentage is allowed to be in each of the 5 ratings you can be given in your review. HP swears it doesn't do this, it says success of the business is a factor it takes into account but it doesn't have quotas. I am a manager, I do the spreadsheets every year. I am told exactly how many of each rating I am allowed to have. If you are in a business seen as under-performing then there won't be more than 8% of the top ratings allowed, no matter what an employee achieved or how they performed. Amazingly, under-performing businesses still hand out big bonuses to the senior managers who are allegedly accountable for their businesses but the employees who do all the real work, often working long hours to compensate for the continuous layoffs, get forced ranking and no pay increases. Senior positions are nearly always filled externally, those managers then in turn hire their old buddies from wherever they came from themselves. Internal promotion is almost non-existent, the Job Searcher tool is incredibly difficult to use and hiring managers rarely reply to internal applicants. HP is trying hard to purge itself of its older workforce, who are seen as expensive and too opinionated. Hitting your 30 year anniversary in HP means you will be on the next WFR list if you won't take the hint and take phased retirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the golden parachutes for executives and have them take real responsibility for the success of their businesses. The only accountable people in HP are the individual contributors who are routinely laid off after every bad business decision. The executive team suffers in from action imperative syndrome in trying to make Meg happy, if she leans towards having people back in the office rather than working from home, then her unsubtle followers make sure that 100% of the workforce will be in the office, no matter how many things that breaks. HP has some sensible ideas that are incredibly stupidly executed.
