This company has a long struggle ahead, especially on the Enterprise Services team

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Focus on product investment is creating opportunities. Enterprise services (formerly EDS) has benefitted from being able to cross-sell to current HP clients.

Cons

Poor management at all levels. Lack of career coaching and development. A very impersonal and unsupportive HR team. A very left-coast mentality/culture which is out of step with the overwhelming majority of employees at HP (the majority are remote for the company headquarters).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a hard look at the front-line and mid-level managers in ES. With the upper leadership churn over the last several years, there are a large number of very poor leaders that are hiding and not being weeded out.

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. They believe in promoting within and you are able to drive your career.

    Cons

    Salary ranges are not available to the public. This can be sometimes discouraging knowing that people can come in at different salaries and not know what the salary range is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe the management here on this account can be more people friendly.

    Pros

    Advantages of a large company such as good benefits and enough resources to support the work. Good policy allowing for moving to another position within the company.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy. Not enough communication. Too much emphasis on profitability and growth. Too much time spent tracking time. Salary freezes and downsizing when things aren't going well.
