Lots of great people set adrift by poor management

Current Employee - Technology Consultant
Current Employee - Technology Consultant

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Access to lots of self paced training
Great people

Cons

Staffing an resources are cut to the point of just bareley meeting contract requirements. Management talks a big game about impressing the customer with HP quality and then just bareley provides the services they sold.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to make more money, invest in providing great services to customers, not cutting costs to the bone.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance
    Benefits (pension, medical healthcare,...)
    very family oriented. Good if you are father/mother and wants to have time for kids. Go for HP
    Flexibility of working from home
    Brand
    People ( I do not include senior management here)

    Cons

    Lack of face to face interaction. Everything is virtual
    Very bureaucratic
    Poor pay for performance. The performance review and grade means strictly nothing and forced distribution is normal
    Forget the word promotion, pay rise.....even if you perform significantly well. If you are ambitions and want to progress, leave HP; you will get better opportunities outside.
    A lot of American show...lack of pragmatism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect, Recognize, Reward your people appropriately
    Be open and honest about your compensation and financials
    HP could be great place to work. You have the brand and technology...but you miss the most important ingredient to be successful : your people. What a pitty !

    Disapproves of CEO
