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

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

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.
