Good opportunities, friendly people, not so good upper management

Systems Software Engineer VI (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsHuge company, so there are many opportunities. Most teams and engineers I've ever worked with are very open and willing to help. Many programs available to boost your career and knowledge.

ConsUpper management with unreasonable deadlines for product readiness. Very large company, so it's easy to get lost in the crowd. The culture has changed significantly for the worse. Everyone talks about the "good ol' days" when HP was Compaq. I'm lucky that I have a great team and good direct manager. Friends from other teams have had a much worse experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive us reasonable product deadlines. Compensate us better for all the work we put in to hit these unreasonable deadlines. I don't get the feeling that management cares about the well being of their employees. Stop hiring all these contractors out of the country! HP doesn't sponsor so they eventually quit within a year. Stop firing and hiring...this is counter productive. Do not ever do a contractor furlough again, because this caused many to quit. Again, this is counter productive.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    IT Consultant (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Freedom to work with little micro management. Great atmosphere with high quality people all over the company. HP… Cons: I can't say there are many cons to working at this company. It's a great company. If anything there are going to be normal ups… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
