Current Employee - Supply Chain Program Manager in Barueri (Brazil)

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Work/ life flexibility
Open door policy
Little politics
Fairness in performance reviews
Friendly atmosphere
International exposure
Great possibilities for lateral movements
Other than Workforce Reduction programs, job safety is high

Cons

Slow career progression, or no progression at all.
Manager and directors don't move up too often, nor do they leave the company. Senior individual contributors seeking management positions keep "hitting the ceiling", and eventually leave the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find and fire the ones leaking strategic decisions to the press
In the next reorgs, prioritize compulsory retirement programs over workforce reduction, lo open room for senior Individual Contributors to become fresh, high motivated managers
Somehow increase uopwards mobility

Approves of CEO

    Current Employee - Business Analyst

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexilibity (work from home and travel opportunities)

    Cons

    Salary! My advice to people considering employment here is to come in the door making the salary you want to make for the rest of your career here, because there are no raises. Even when you get promoted, there are no raises. They will lie to you during the interview process and tell you they can discuss salary at a future date, but don't buy it. Also, get used to finding out the people around you are making DOUBLE what you are, but have less responsibility. I've actually seen PowerPoint presentations given to managers with tips for how to deal with an employee who has discovered they are below the lowest salary in the salary band, without giving in to any adjustment in pay. Seriously: Make sure you come in the door making what you want to make for a loooooong time to come!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the retirement packages so we can get some non-dinosaurs (hey, maybe even some folks who don't fear change and technology!) into management positions.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
