I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Comfortable atmosphere to work and great benefits. This is a great place to start a career in sales and has a top notch training program.

Cons

Two Words: Senior Leadership

In sales, you can have a huge influence on a lot of things... none of which will be your paycheck. You have a better chance of predicting your winnings at a casino than what your commission check will look like.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A clear direction is required in order to keep quality employees.

    Current Employee - Solutions Architect in Colorado Springs, CO

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    work from home flexibility
    professional growth opportunities
    some really excellent people to work with
    interesting work and some opportunity to choose projects to work on

    Cons

    pay raises pretty close to non existent. Mgmt hopes same annual bonus each year keeps you happy

    HP strives that each benefit be "market average". Average in every benefit = less than average across all benefits.

    workload can be quite heavy. Nobody thinks twice of 6 PM meetings and some are genuinely surprised if you can't make a Saturday meeting

    promotions seem very hard to come by. internal transfers almost always can't contain a promotion element because that represents an unfair advantage for the hiring manager. HP seems more willing to hire a stranger for the higher position than promote from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more communication is needed from senior mgmt. Meg started out with regular communication but now we don't hear much.
