Very nice severance package

Manager (Former Employee) Plano, TX

ProsReally nice and talented people doing the best they can to meet customers needs. Most first and second level managers really care and are honest with the employees even when it is bad news.

ConsVery few opportunities for advancement outside of sales. Very political environment. Constant cost cutting; read layoffs. Employees in constant fear of layoffs. Integration of acquisitions is very poor. Many obstacles to doing business internally.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Struggling to right the ship, buy not investing to do so

    Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Vancouver, WA

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Large, diversified company with broad geographic reach. Salary direct deposit still taking place twice… Cons: Strategy du jour from upper management based on CEO or executives current hot buttons or highlighted business issues. One day it is innovation, the next… Advice to Senior Management: Need to understand the turmoil and distrust that has been bred over the past decade.
