    Great company, great people,

    Business Development Manager (Former Employee) Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    Prosthe people in general were great; products cutting edge, good work life balance.

    Consthe management don't seem to be able to understand when and where to invest in their business. They sold off so many business in the Telecoms area when really they just needed better management and more support. Could have really dominated in that region with better management.

    Compromise less than zero

    Trade Compliance (Current Employee)

    ProsBig worldwide company with big project incomes

    ConsIt keeps reducing its staff constantly and never invests in hiring new professionals; my personal experience is being a subcontractor for the past 2 years. Its main goal is to reduce costs at the maximum, therefore even subcontractor companies are changed regularly, what impacts in the normal functioning of our day to day work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes lowering costs is not the main objective to be bigger...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Jury is still out..............................

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

    ProsGood salary and benefits,. Still a lot of people with hp way in mind.

    ConsKind of lost their way a bit after they split from HP. Although I hear that things have got a bit better now they are out of the protracted transition.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't always go for the cheapest most unform solution. Sometimes something smarter is required.
