Constant struggle.

Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) Rio Rancho, NM

ProsVery well paid for amount/difficulty level of work, very forgiving sales environment --- at other sales companies, you are fired if you do not meet 100% of quota. At HP, they lower your quota and tell you to "try again!"

ConsConstantly changing C-level staff, boring product lines, "kick you when you're down" sales structure. Management turns a blind eye and a deaf ear to any concerns/criticisms/questions that you may have, so don't bother asking.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent, provide a more coherent (and longer lasting) vision, and hire internally.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Things can happen for you, but it's a bumpy ride

    Software Development Manager (Former Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros: A large organization with many resources, functions, events, if you can find the right contact.… Cons: A large organization with a good layer of bureaucracy, unhealthy doze of politics at top… Advice to Senior Management: Stop doing erratic decisions, and smooth out your hiring / layoff cycles.
