Pros

The people at HP are excellent to work for. The climate is very laid back (though, it used to be more laid back than it is now). The pay is very competitive.

Cons

Management doesn't seem to know how to maintain a successful business. We have entered several markets (tv's, projectors, cell phones...) and don't stay in long enough to make it successful. It can be very frustrating to work on a project and feel like you are being successful only to be told that they are cancelling the program not because it's not making money, but because it's not making enough money.

Advice to Management

Stick with something! Just because the profit isn't immediate or as high as you want it to be, give it some time. You have some very talented people working for you, give them a chance to make HP great again!

    Pros

    Colleagues respect your time. Awards for excellent work. Work from home.

    Cons

    Red tape leads to additional work, re-work and at times loss of business. New ideas take longer to be institutionalized or are lost in the milieu of bureaucracy and complacency.

    Advice to Management

    Remove bureaucracy at all levels. Other organizations are leaner and have quick approvals and processes in place that will help business.


  2. Good teams, with hard working managers

    Pros

    HP manager respect their team members and support them. The team members support across functions and give their best. HP is a respected company, and backs up its products.

    Cons

    Accounting uses older technologies. The is little to no growth opportunities visible. Much of the institutional memory has been lost in down sizing.

    Advice to Management

    Build more from within. Prove you respect the contributors that made HP great. Communicate vision to the entire teams.
