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.

    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.

    Innovation is zero, just permutation and combination of old technologies. All levels of Mgmt saving their own **s.

    Pros

    Work culture among peers good.
    Salaries above average.

    Cons

    Complete mgmt overhaul needed. It is always ICs that get affected because of miss mgmt.
    Performance review and growth is nil.
    Mgmt is not proactive. Relationships matter for growing up in mgmt.

    Advice to Management

    Remove people from top , not from bottom.
