Interesting place

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Plano, TX

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

Pros- No micro-managers - you have a lot of freedom to get the work done as you see fit
- Lots of responsibility for those that step up
- Talented and helpful co-workers
- Flexible work arrangements
- Pay for performance - annual bonus for those who do well

Cons- If you don't have the stomach for job insecurity, you might do better someplace else. This situation seems to be improving, however
- Top performers bear most of the workload which can be daunting at times
- The senior management ranks is a revolving door although Meg Whitman seems to be bringing more stability now
- The company is very big which can get in the way sometimes - hard to know everything that is going on

Advice to Senior Management- Take a hard look at the delivery function and be sure that we have enough trained people to deliver
- Stop thinking of HP as a printer company along - lead with services

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros: You can learn and get some good experience if you hit… Cons: Management is insane and you are just a biological robot destined to toil long hours. They have insane rules that make it almost impossible… Advice to Senior Management: Please leave and work for our competition. That's the… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
