Pros

There are opportunities within the company and good leaders/accounts.

Cons

In order to get to other opportunities, you have to go through your current leadership who can hinder your ability to find other opportunities. Bad leaders run a slave ship, and any challenge or question results in you being labeled a negative team member, and then they separate you from group, target you, and then make your work life miserable.

Advice to Management

Middle Management is where the issues are. To many layers of persons that are not really required trying to justify their positions. It reminds me of Office Space. I am on a team of four. I have a Team Lead, and two managers. Very ineffective if you ask me.

    Pros

    Hewlett Packard understands that the knowledge of their employees are their true strength. Their size allows many sorts of training and cross training opportunities. It's a good way to get started in IT.

    Cons

    As the company changes direction repeatedly, trying to find it's way in the "New IT World" , the employees are stuck trying to deal with it. As new processes, new tools, and new guidelines are pushed out you barely have time to see if they WILL work before new ones are pushed down. Many of these are broken yet by the time any input makes it back up the chain it is lost or disregarded. There are many organizations within the company failing SLAs and there are no real plans to right the ship at this time, only to try to 'keep up' with the changes.

    Advice to Management

    Take more input and allow innovation from your employees.

    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.
