What HP Way?

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cupertino, CA

ProsIt'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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not anymore

    Director (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard


    Pros: Lot's of cash flow to fund aquisitions. Cons: Treats employees bad. Constant pay cuts. Really messed around transition employees from EDS. Went to the market and said one time pay… Advice to Senior Management: Short term gain of quarterly announcements is killing the true growth engine. Your killing… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
