Before HP, it was great, however now the opportunites are slipping away

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Cupertino, CA

ProsIntelligent co-workers, great atmosphere, interesting technology and work. The office is easy to reach and great for folks living near Cupertino. Politics aren't too bad compared to other places I've been at.

ConsAfter HP acquired ArcSight, it's been going downhill, little by little. First, the benefits suck in general. Second we are now having to do things the "HP way" which means a lot more bureaucracy. Third, there is no IT dept, it's all self-IT which means you now have to spend your time learning how to fix your own computer.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep trying to hold on to what made ArcSight great, namely the people, and little social perks that brings the team together, and not letting ArcSight get lost in HP.

    Pros: Nice Co-workers In today's economy - salary is fair market free lunch… Cons: Support Management takes the approach that you need to sacrifice your life for the company Support Management does not consider the employees need for advancement and… Advice to Senior Management: Hire more headcount to reduce the unneeded stress Listen to the needs to the employee - growth - even horizontal moves are ignored Do not be in… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
