Current Employee - Services Information Specialist in Sydney (Vanuatu)

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

great people
awesome technologies from Labs
huge career potential
online communities are good
fantastic support of women
good values
good work/life balance is possible

Cons

management is misdirected
so many opportunities missed with acquisitions
too many acquisitioned companies means it is full of middle managers with no clue and now has to cull the fat. you can guess who is safe from reductions though..
all these great technology innovations from Labs never getting to market
management cries out for 'innovation' but will not sponsor it - any time i made suggestions i was always told 'no we can't do that'
poor pay grades , no raises, no out call allowance if you are on an after-hours support roll

Advice to ManagementAdvice

look at the big picture, your people are appreciating resources, why get rid of the few loyal ones you have left?
