Good or Bad? Depends what you are looking for...

  • Work/Life Balance
  • Career Opportunities
  • Comp & Benefits
  • Senior Management

Disapproves of CEO

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 Management

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 !

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are ok and the salary is ok.

    Cons

    The people who get promoted to management are not the ones who are capable of being good at it, but those who want it the most. Which is always bad.

    Advice to Management

    PICK A STRATEGY AND STICK WITH IT. YOU ARE DESTROYING A HUGE SUCCESSFUL COMPANY.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    good pay and the people at the engineering level are cool people. flexible scheduling and middle management are hard working good people

    Cons

    Senior management could give a care less about the people aspect. poor money managers at the top levels and they will terminate contractors at the drop of a hat

    Advice to Management

    manage your money better. just because you fail to budget properly doesnt mean people that depend on this job should be let go in large numbers to cover your Azz
