Never boring, becoming increasingly micromanaged

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Smart and talented people, good culture, opportunities to experience every type of legal issue under the sun

Cons

Increasingly, departments and even specific jobs within Legal are becoming more like silos (despite the talk of moving towards more open communication and flexible job responsibilities). Surely the bad economy and poor company performance are partly to blame, but employees are being asked to do more for less in the face of tight budgets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees more input on their goals and performance metrics.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    work from home (literally nothing more)

    Cons

    management is absolutely dilettante group of people, not competent to do anything - everything is driven from top to bottom, no feedback is enough strong to help to push through any idea to improve anything
    once you start with some salary, it will not change at all during the next following years
    company just follows saving policy, is not creating or giving any value why one should be working there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    - Some of the best people in the industry
    - Amazing opportunities for growth if you deserve it
    - Great challenges
    - Continuous learning
    - Never a dull moment

    Cons

    - Salary increase never match responsibility increase if you are a top talent and are growing fast
    - Poor work-life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mark Hurd badly impacted HP Values and people morale but HP has got amazing people who kept on performing through salary cuts and CEO scandals. So my most sincere good luck to Meg and her leadership team to bring back some of the HP way
