Pros

Nice Facility, Good supervisors. The location was fairly convenient, and they did a good job clearing the snow in the winter.

Cons

Their track record of promoting from within wasn't very good,, and it took 20 months to get a review that included a salary adjustment.

Advice to Management

Good luck to you, thank you for the opportunity.

    Pros

    Big name company identity. Grandparents know who I work for.

    Cons

    lack of clear vision. cogs in wheels. pride themselves in paying 75% of competitive salaries. IT and cost cutting rules, to the detriment of logic, efficiency, and positive forward momentum. Poor work/life balance if you are someone who wants to move fast. You have to pull a LOT of dead weight around.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on real innovation. Cut the crap and bureaucratic overhead. Aggressively remove dead weight (mostly management).

    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.
