Current Employee - Account Delivery Manager in Chicago, IL
Current Employee - Account Delivery Manager in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Wide range of skills used and honed on a regular basis. P&L, People, Technical and Sales.
Endless job opportunities if you are a dedicate top performer.

Cons

Upheaval in org charts happen way to often. Job security is missing. Raises are rarely granted, even with a promotion. Bonuses are pretty much a joke. When i talk to my counter parts with other companies that regularly receive cost of living raises plus bonus's around 20% and we are lucky to see 2.5 %.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve training and start to provide cost of living expenses. Many of us are being chased by HP's competitors. With much higher salaries.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to investing in the employees and get the best out of them once more

    Pros

    Flexible hours, light workload, failure tolerant, plenty of upward mobility if willing to play politics.

    Cons

    Low salary, minimal benefit, too much politics which gets in the way of execution. Fairly boring place if you want exciting work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Competitive salary, better benefit and cut the politics.
