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

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

    Current Employee - Product Engineer in Barueri (Brazil)

    Pros

    HP is one of the leaders of the market at the segments that it acts. Managers are very well experienced and provide excellent guidance to individual contributors.

    Cons

    The company wants to be on average when talking about salaries, benefits and total compensation. This means that the company is losing some talents to the competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Brazil is a different scenarium and is on the spot nowadays. Senior management needs to understand this and try to retain talents.
