Industry innovator that needs to find its way back to greatness

Former Employee - Strategy Manager  in  Palo Alto, CA
Former Employee - Strategy Manager in Palo Alto, CA

Pros

Great people - competence of rank and file is high, great diversity (of thought and ethnogratphics and demographics), tremendous opportunities to do just about any job within the company, culture of trust and respect (still, despite erosion of these values in recent years)

Cons

Lack of long-term investments or metrics that track/enable longer-term commitments to future business opportunities. Accordingly strategic decision-making is not up to par. Executive leadership actions pressure mid-level management to prioritize short-term results rather than supporting/enabling execution of strategic imperatives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Accelerate the course of change that Meg Whitman has started. Empower your employees to reinvigorate the innovation that they are capable of and that is the legacy of this company.

    Pros

    The individual contributors truly care about the customer and each other. Flexible work hours is a definite plus and the name really helps on the resume. HP is a stepping stone company to a better place.

    Cons

    Management only looks out for them self and refuses to acknowledge anything is wrong with the HP corporate culture. Constant changes in reporting structure make it impossible to obtain a meaningful review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never forget about how your actions and refusal to acknowledge issues affects others.

    Pros

    Flexibility in location of work.
    Benefits are good, specially flexible vacation schedule and sick days
    Colleagues and managers have generally good faith and excellent work ethics

    Cons

    Not much in terms of overall career growth. I think its due to HPs stagnant market share..
    Lags Strategy and direction on new initiatives and existing offerings
    Lower salaries and no raises over past couple of years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider yourself as not a leader. Start small and concentrate on quality of initiatives and offerings.
