A big company trying to restructure itself: a few exciting opportunities rising amidst heavy politics and processes.

Current Employee - Lead Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Fairly stable environment (safe the occasional massive 30k layoffs)
Good health benefits
Possibility to stand out through quality work, and take ownership of projects.

Cons

Very process oriented - too many cases of processes taking precedence over common sense.

This creates a fertile ground for office politics - much more than usual based on my experience.

No kitchen/office perks - absolutely nothing - water and coffee are the only guaranteed goodies you can expect, safe the occasional fruit basket and biz lunch left overs. Probably qualifies as the worst place ever when it comes to perks - almost comically tragique when compared to any other company of the bay area.

Advice to Management

Forget the processes and politics for a moment, pay attention to insider suggestions and innovations.
Get real about kitchen perks.

    Pros

    Used to have a lot of career opportunity without leaving the company. There are some great people who work here.

    Cons

    Don't know how to run a services organization. Does not value Program/project management. Continue to slash and cut and expect the employees left behind to continue to do their work and pick up those who left.

    Pros

    Resume Building Opportunities
    Fantastic coworkers and middle management

    Cons

    Poor Pay
    Company Too Big to Succeed
    Inept Board
    Middle Management hands tied

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the restraints on rewarding people for a job well done. Value the people who actually do the work and not just the presenters. Layoffs should be considered executive management failure and not company policy.
