Fantastic at the start but declined in to farce with the amount of cost-cutting and layoffs

Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsStill some great minds involved in certain areas. HP has some great patents and inventions but too often are not able to capitalize on them

ConsConstant cost-cutting. Management seemed to be floundering. Lower level employees living in constant fear of losing job. Many areas very under-staffed.

Advice to Senior ManagementReturn to investing in the employees and get the best out of them once more

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