  1.  

    The 1990s was a great time to work for HP because the company was very employee oriented.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Certain organizations withing HP are employee oriented. These organizations allow for work from home. This flexibility allows for work life balance. The salaries are somewhat competitive.

    Cons

    There are organizations within HP that are forcing out there older employees and replacing them with college graduates. Certain organizations are not employee and have take it or leave mentality about the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing some very talented employees. Your treatment of employees will backfire on you when the job market picks up. There will be a mass exodus of talneted people.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Business practices are ethical and above board
    Above average benefit package
    Above average line management (varies by region)
    Fair advancement opportunities in specialist sales organization(s)
    Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Specialist sales organization(s) overweight with serial under-performers
    Senior and Executive sales management either aren't present, or aren't useful in the field
    Inconsistent and dysfunctional service delivery team(s)
    Terrible customer support experience frustrates even the most strategic and loyal customers
    Too quick to hire externally for senior roles, leads to inconsistency in strategy and message

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fixing HP's inconsistent results requires a deeper analysis of the sales organization than HP leadership have proven capable of conducting. It's more complicated than executing an annual WFR. The specialist sales organizations in particular are plagued by serial under-performers, whose mediocrity is just sufficient to stay anonymous. Over time, that drag on sales affects results and creates the condition HP is experiencing; the best reps and sales leaders leave, for organizations without the stress of carrying unproductive resources.
