Sad disintegration of a once-proud company

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Collins, CO

ProsGenerally great people to work with. Flexibility to work from home. Good equipment to work with. Understanding low level managers.

ConsRampant executive excessiveness (compensation, disregard of policies, disdain for lower level employees
Constant fear of layoffs
Very long hours
Unrealistic goals
Minimal rewards
Continually decreasing benefits

Advice to Senior ManagementRename the company to Compaq. Any referral to Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard is an absolute travesty to these true leaders and innovators. Or better yet, leave and put real HP-ites back in charge so that Hewlett-Packard can return and replace "Hurd's Profits".

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    HP is moving to INDIA

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    Pros: You will get paid for work. Just don't expect above… Cons: The best reasons to work for HP are dead, gone, and buried next to Bill and Dave.
