Pros

company has great benefits..actually excellent benefits

Cons

lower mgmt structure..mg1, mg2...are not in touch with employees..most are offsite so they have No idea what is going on..for the most part if they are not true managers who have done the position they are managing they tend not to have good knowledge to pass along to upper management when things are wrong. The group I used to work in had very poor managers and were very poor at both people mgmt and leadership. The department has been suffering for the last 3 years because of it

Advice to Management

stop sending jobs to Mexico and India. Train your managers to manage better and lead better. Invest in your U.S. Employees..actually talk to your lower level employees...not the mg1 and mg2 but the actual individual contributors in another means other than a survey. You might actually find out why you are losing your talented people.

    Pros

    The people at HP are great! Collaboration and teamwork are core values.

    HP is a world-wide company which adds stability. Working with a wide variety of people world-wide is fantastic.

    Working in Technology Services - there are many telecommute positions available.

    Cons

    The salaries are no longer competitive and there is a strong focus to downsize within the US.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the individual employees, especially the top contributors.
