    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Palo Alto, CA
    Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Palo Alto, CA

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people are nice, the on site health clinic in palo alto.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive, constant change makes you feel scared all the time. Managers are always cya-ing and that means the chaos rolls down hill. Not real empowerment at an individual level, again the management has to cya all the time, and therefore wont let you do your job. Who is your boss anyway, there have to be at least 5 people at any time checking on you, thinking they are above you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut management layers, not the people who do the job. Laying of thousands of people at the bottom won't turn this company around. Take a hard look at the management level, where you are no doubt hemorrhaging large amounts of money in perks and cash.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is a plus

    Year after year of no bonus or raise with good review while continuing to add responsibilities can be ...demoralizing
