HP is the place to be

Director (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsHP has become a meritocracy - strong performers who achieve results are rewarded comensurate with their contributions.

ConsThere is still a groundswell of tenured employees who "don't get it". They fail to understand that cost cutting measures enable us to invest in sales resources & R&D to drive innovation, become more competitive and take market share. You will read many posts about how "upper management makes decisions" - I have never worked for a company that is as crystal clear about articulating strategy & decisions and how they impact both the employee base and the company overall. It's embarrassing to read posts about ppl griping about meaningless takeaways - they fail to understand the economic implications of better deployed capital - despite the exec team's thoughtful explanations. Alas...

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. Leadership is not a popularity contest - I applaud the difficult decisions you make that benefit the longevity and health of the company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    HP lost its "Way" yet performing well for short term results!

    Senior Engineering Program Manager (Current Employee)
    Portland, OR

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros: The people I work with are the best. Cons: The HP Way is gone and the company's values are violated regularly by executive and higher management. Lost trust and respect for all employees.… Advice to Senior Management: Pay attention to your people and morale. Cost reduction for short term Wall Street gains is not enough. The cuts are too deep… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Good if you like to work alone with little collaboration.

    Software Intern (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros: Good pay. You could become important to the company… Cons: The projects are very abstract. They don't give much guidance and don't have a path to get where they'd like to get. … Advice to Senior Management: Understand where you are trying to go before you start… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
