Current Employee - Manager
Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Relatively good work-life balance
Salary is not too bad, but not market value
Excellent co-workers in general

Cons

No real open door policy in use
Middle managers really need some leadership training
Many senior managers only playing the politics game
Micro management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The selction criteria for promoting managers to higher levels really needs looking at. More often, incompetent sociopaths are being promoted to even higher levels. The peter principle comes to mind. If HP started using assessment centres for manager hiring and promotion HP would really start to improve. With the continuing redundancies occuring things will not change if you dont make some of the management redundant!

    Current Employee - Manager in Chennai (India)

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    More learnings
    More opportunities to explore
    very good work life balance
    HP culture is really great
    friendly environment

    Cons

    Salary
    Slow growth
    very minimal salary hike

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal growth rate should be improved. Salary for the internal promotion should be relooked. For the same grade - a person groomed from within HP is paid less wherease a person who is new to the company is really paid double the pay. Why is this difference? Though he/she carries external expertise, the person groomed within the industry has more knowledge about the people, process and the customers. Dont you think equal importance/ benefits to be given to those who gets groomed here?

    Rate your employees fairly. The department that performs well shouldn't be affected by the department that performed poorly
