Pros

You will get Free Ink - that is about it. Strong brand recognition outside the company and that is helpful

Cons

Bureaucratic nightmare, less pay and more work in past year, hostile work environment is encouraged, little understanding or concern for day to day tasks of individual contributors by management decision makers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

simplify internal systems and processes

    Pros

    Can work from home as needed, overall people are truly nice. Known employer in the area. May help your resume.

    Cons

    Horrible pay and you can basically assume no raises or bonuses unless you work 24/7 & even then you may get a measly bonus that gets taxed away basically. Advancement is difficult, and even if you get promoted you may not get a salary increase. Financial systems are a mess, and this is a technology company...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much management that claims "thought leadership" but doesn't make a decision and creates churn. CEO is definitely a ruthless cost cutter at the expense of innovation and employee morale. Management feels competent, but most employees would disagree.

    Pros

    It's a job. It pays just below industry average. At the end of the day you get to go home, although you keep working. Some smart people left. Mostly nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Forget "Invent", innovation is actively discouraged. If you are over 50, there's a target painted on your back. If you don't have 20 years with HP "classic", you are dogmeat. If you are part of an acquired company, count on HP management driving your former company into the ground, and decimation of the employees. Terrible morale! Rewards go up exponentially with closeness to CEO level. No rewards below director level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start realizing that a technology company has to treat it's technical talent better. Stop discriminating against senior employees under th guise of cost cutting.
