Way too many chiefs that have no idea what everyone does in order to make them the big bucks.

Pros

Flexible hours and ability to work from home.

Cons

Management is so focused upon outsourcing to India, that they cannot understand how poor of a job the outsourced India techs actually do. There is a reason why the people located in the US cost more. It is because they do better quality work!

Advice to Management

Get rid of some of the excessive layers of management that are costing HP way too much money and stop the excessive focus upon everything India.

    Pros

    Work from home and benefits were good in the beginning.

    Cons

    Like working for the government. Lots of roadblocks to getting the job done. Benefits all went away when the recession hit.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on something and actually follow through.


  2. Great colleagues, but over the years the constant reorganizations and CEO changes degraded the working environment.

    Pros

    Colleagues are great, benefits are good.

    Cons

    No raises for seven years running. Bonuses dwindling down to 2% if you are lucky enough to get one. Constant reorging and threat of lay off a constant for the last 10 years. Budget cuts and layoffs mean more work to spread around over an already overloaded and demoralized workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees.
