Very poor pay for people staying for longer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please retain good and loyal resources by correcting their pays instead of hiring some bca & bsc candidates and paying better then current employees.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    less work pressure, good work-life balance, good brand name, flexible work timings, perks in the form of discounts on HP products

    Cons

    * not much opportunities for learning & career building. employees can be stuck doing the same work for years, dealing with technical support for outdated HP products working on outdated technologies.
    * management doesn't recognize & reward contributions of members low down in the hierarchy, & it can take ages to rise higher in the ladder.
    * focuses more on satisfaction of clients, rather than satisfaction of employees.
    * pay not as great as other companies in similar sectors. also the amenities in the office, & other benefits are not very great either. hikes in salary likely to be marginal bcoz of HP's poor performance in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * stop brainwashing college-grads with the 'R&D' tag, when most jobs allotted to them are testing & maintainance.
    * improve your performance review process. it seems too rigid & not very transparent.
    * you do take feedback from employees every year, but not much is done to actually address their grievances. plz work on that.
