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

Pros

Good employer, opportunities to move around if you want to, well respected heritage, decent benefits

Cons

Poor leadership at the top. Difficult to find anything internally be that people, content, account information etc. Seem to spend too much time competing against ourselves and not the competition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We do too many things and are way too complicated. Time to break up?

    Pros

    The culture and flexibility has been great. No strict rules or checks. Self-paced and deliverable based.

    Cons

    Annual increase is very low. Performance are affected by non-work factors. Admin and initiative work eats up your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more on people. People leave because of the "push" not the "pull" of other companies

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Edmonton, AB (Canada)
    Former Employee - Account Manager in Edmonton, AB (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Great direct managers, flex office, company car, professional colleagues. They let you self manage, and take control of your own accounts....at least in my office.

    Cons

    Very intense layers of reporting, forecasting, weekly, monthly, quarterly, years sales territory planning, sometimes requiring presentations to upper management. Very administratively time consuming. Some staff perfected the art of managing these these in steadying actually seeing clients and winning business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your sales staff the freedom to become superstars, or hang themselves. But judge them on their numbers, bottom line, not on who hands you the best reports.
