Pros

HP has some really good people with strong skill sets. The company has some good software assets which can be sold and delivered to customers. Lower level employees want to succeed and do well for customers and their immediate managers. Sales and project opportunities are available and won due to the company name recognition.

Cons

The red tape can be over whelming at times. Some managers need to allow their people to develop into roles and increased levels of responsibilities. Too much time is spent justifying your job versus getting the job done.

Advice to Management

Put more focus on managing southbound (downstream) in the organization chart and not northbound (upstream) to play the politics.

    Pros

    Great team of colleagues who help one another reach tight schedules and all strive for quality work.

    Cons

    Constant executive turmoil; mediocre salary; slow salary based recognition of sustained performance.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a plan long enough for it to make it to and effect desired change with the 1st level employees. Skip feeling the need for new programs all the time.
