Current Employee - Finance Manager in Palo Alto, CA
Current Employee - Finance Manager in Palo Alto, CA

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

Pros

Opportunities - many functions and business models to link into for a broad array of opportunities and experiences

Great colleagues - very committed, energetic, and smart.

Employee programs - mentoring programs, high performance employee programs, access to executives for career talks and informational interviews, Digital Oasis for free print products

Cons

Long hours - working in a global company, juggling the project activities that require resources from all 3 regions is tough. Though the company headquarters is in Calif., the work day starts much er to align with Texas (where the de facto headquarters is) and Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Rewards - pay increases are small and infrequent, but better than the complete lack of increases we experienced a few years back. The performance revview process still needs work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set a clear direction, help employees understand it and understand what they need to do to support it. Avoid the drama.
