I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

There are some really great, talented people to work with. HP values work life balance. People are very smart and good at what they do. Good team players.

Cons

HP is moving away from research and development. HP focuses too much on the short term results, pays too much attention to the stock holders rather than its employees. HP used to provide a lot more trainings to the employees, but now, HP has reduced the training budget by a lot. Executive members are getting too well compensated, while employees are getting not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management do not share enough on the company direction; they should be more open to their employees.

    Pros

    The Health benefits are very good for the company. As well as, the work environment is very diverse and gives those a chance to build a network with others.

    Cons

    The downsides come from low pay compared to other companies. Another would be a low chance to receive compensation for receiving higher education within the company. Also, the CEO of the company continues to strive for cost reduction; however, many employees are finding it hardening to work for a company that doesn't give its employees great value for working hard each day. As well, many employees are not very friendly to others in the work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are so many people within each group in the company that want to work for Hewlett-Packard. However, the question still remains "will HP help others with their career development." This was my reason for coming to the company. If the opportunity is not there within the company to receive some type of higher education, then I believe that many people will look elsewhere for employment.

    Current focus is on reducing cost, outsourcing, and acquiring. The old HP would develop from within.
