Pros

Coming back, but it's a continual struggle.

Cons

There are still many challenges and layoffs are still a real possibility, so it can be a difficult environment.

Advice to Management

Fix the compensation issues, getting a promotion without a raise since salary actions only happen once a year s a problem.

    Pros

    - Exposure to bleeding edge technology - Lots of opportunity to learn - Decent health benefits

    Cons

    - Metrics driven workplace, a lot of time wasted trying to fix the metrics so your bosses looks good - Layoffs, Work Force Reductions, Attritions - words that go hand in hand with the HP brand -

    Advice to Management

    - For the middle managers nothing really, they're just following orders from the top. - For the top level managers, you need not worry whether the company goes belly up or the workers get disadvantaged, you have your golden parachutes.


  2. A great company that lost its way as it matured.

    Pros

    Great people (especially long time employees and new college hires). Good large corporation benefits.

    Cons

    Not much news here, disfunctional and mediocre Board of Directors, averaage senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the overhead & management fat. Eliminate &/or reduce the Business Groups & Units stovepipes. Allocate more resources to innovation and customer facing resources.
