Disappointed with a company I use to be proud of

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - IT Consultant in Houston, TX
Current Employee - IT Consultant in Houston, TX

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

Pros

Work-life- balance and flexibility were good

Cons

Salaries are way below market.
Force ranking in annual performance reviews even if you do an exceptional job

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HP has smart and talented people who are frustrated with the direction of the company. They no longer trust the course that the company is on. You should start paying employees more and valuing their contribution.

    Current Employee - Nevada Medical Management, Prior Auth Department Processing in Topeka, KS
    Current Employee - Nevada Medical Management, Prior Auth Department Processing in Topeka, KS

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, it's local in Topeka, it is steady work, and if you like changes this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Amount per hour is a little on the low side. And if you go to HR about anything, their are informants that make anonymity impossible. I will say that when they ask in the interview, "do you like change" what they actually mean is, "you will figure out your job and then we will pull that Idea out from under you and make you responsible"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better. Communicate better.
