Do more with less - less people, less space, less benefits

Pros

Fascinating technology and a lot of smart people to work with. Their software vision is grand though difficult to achieve.

Cons

See title! A great deal of off-shoring leaving U.S. based employees the first in layoffs. Difficult to work in global teams with the language, culture, and time challenges. Challenging to have performance reviews given by someone you've never met and rarely talk to. Didn't feel like there was good support for the employee to get the assigned job done well.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with respect and listen to their issues. Sending out surveys then making no appreciable changes is a morale killer.

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow and develop is positive.

    Cons

    New college hires don't always get good mentoring. If not proactive in seeking advice or asking for help & direction, will be setup to fail.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit the Company Culture Bill and Dave built and HP would be on top of the world as the best company to work for, which would translate to great products, service and profit.
