HP Driving Away the Best and Brightest

Disapproves of CEO

Pros

HP treats great employees so badly, once they leave, they feel good anywhere. I honestly can say that this is the first company that I've worked for that I hate. I was "BORGed" through an HP acquisition.

Cons

Having to watch a formerly great company being driven into the ground. Having to listen to a clueless CEO attempt to be funny while he's driving the formerly great company into the ground.

Advice to Management

If you acquire a company, then continue to make further investments in that company. Eating the cow instead of milking it doesn't provide long term value.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Considering the size of HP, there's available training and management support for a friendly and productive environment. Consistent effort to listen to workforce through Voice of the Workforce, where you can submit anonymous concerns.

    Cons

    Don't expect to advance quickly. A company this size requires dedication and patience to grow within.

    Advice to Management

    Sustain morale growth through frequent executive visits and more transparency at the top.

    Poor compensation and getting worse

    Pros

    Smart co-workers, flexible work schedule, telecommuting

    Cons

    Benefits have been slashed and pay cut. All upper management focuses on is short term profit. Can't get the support you need because of cost reductions. Morale is extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing on the future of the company. Employees are fed up and getting ready to leave. Systems don't work and results in bad data and wasted effort.
