Former Employee - Senior Solution Architect in Bethesda, MD

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Working with smart people and very large, interesting clients. Working from home office when not on customer site.

Cons

Internal management and work life balance. Always pressure to bill way beyond a reasonable amount for work life balance. Difficult to use internal systems to get knowledge and training independently. Hyper control of some costs (like travel itineraries) even when there is an undue burden on employee who is travelling 95% of the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is very hands off. Need more professional development and oversite into engagements that are not going well or have issues.

    Former Employee - Network Engineer in Plano, TX

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code and some overtime permitted

    Cons

    Everyone works in various states and countries... It is impossible to know who does what job and how to reach them. Most of the work is done in a ridiculous chat room. Pay rates are terrible and there is no job security. HP has outsourced nearly all of their employment to Malaysia, Costa Rica and India. Most of the Engineers and Management team work from home and rarely come into the office. I only found 1 great Manager while I was there and he was moved to Costa Rica. All of the engineers had worked for the company for a long time and had hardly any knowledge of the technology that was being used. Management would hinder all of the intelligent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work is satisfying, teams work well together

    Cons

    Senior leadership isn't sure what to do with us! Direction changes all the time. Difficult to move to different business units. Compensation on the low side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at successful companies. Decide on a direction and stick with it! Take a critical look at board members, are they really working in the best interests of the company?
