Employee's view.

Engineer (Current Employee)
Vancouver, WA

ProsThere 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
