    Pros

    The corporate pitch on Meaning Based Computing is intriguing and easily conveyed through their messaging and demos.

    Cons

    The company's biggest hurdle comes from the poor integration of past acquisitions creating a climate of bureaucracy and political fiefdoms. With no enforcement of corporate strategy and organization, disparate systems and culture impede productivity of new hires. I saw no net new client logos presented in quarterly win reviews. Turnover was very high, two of the mentors I was paired with were discharged in their first 12 months. First line managers were more concerned with political self-preservation than mentoring or coaching the team.

    Advice to Management

    HP is aware of the problems and is taking action to break down the barriers and instill the corporate culture of a professional organization. HP should cull the middle management to accelerate change, eliminate the overlap & fighting from the 3 divisions with a streamlined field force supported by appropriate technical resources at the field level. This will create better opportunity for success with new hire resources and challenge the incumbent reps to drive business in new accounts and prove their worth.

    Pros

    Good Pay and Benefits. Good people for the most part-They want to do a good job. Good story to tell to clients.

    Cons

    Technology behind. Software hard to deploy and harder for customers to maintain. Few sales people can make their number.

    Advice to Management

    Convince HP to start investing in the products, otherwise you will simply fall further behind
