A good place to work if you're interested in technology; not so great if you want to develop your career

Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Cupertino, CA

ProsGreat for geeks: lots of relevant technologies to work on. Plenty of interesting projects are available for people who like to get involved. HP has some of the most talented people I have ever met, honest and very friendly. In general, everyone wants to do the right thing to make the team stronger.

ConsIt is not a meritocracy; it seems like a "body is a body" regardless of your background or actual skills. Many people get re-assigned not based on their interests, but rather on the demands of the last downsizing. Reorganizations are so frequent that time is wasted trying to work with your new manager and new team every 6 - 9 months. Consistency in the management culture is lacking; very weak compared with other companies. The company does not invest in productivity tools; internal IT support is very weak.

Advice to Senior ManagementMeasure and reward people based on stated quarterly goals. Have a true tops-down driven culture where the goals are completely transparent at every level, so that each person knows exactly what's expected, and can focus on both short term and long term objectives.
