    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Brand name, company stock, relative job security

    Cons

    Not the same HP anymore, Senior management only cares about meeting financial goals and quarterly profits and not about employees. They will go to any extreme to reach financial goals and do extreme cost cuttings without caring about employee morals. Wait for economy to get back in track and you will see so many HP employees leaving for competitors

    Advice to Management

    Think of employees not stock price or your bonus

    Pros

    - Good salary for the work
    - Flexible with scheduling and working odd hours if desired
    - They tried to promote professional development with a mentor program

    Cons

    - Very little involvement from management when it comes to evaluating work.
    - It was difficult to see how my work actually contributed to the success of the company
    - Rarely was the work honestly challenging or motivating
    - I could not see myself happy with any position in the company. The entire culture just felt stale, uninspired, and unexciting.

    Advice to Management

    - Get involved with employee's work
    - Provide feedback
    - Convey the 'big picture' to employees so they know how they contribute to the company's success
