Hewlett-Packard is trying to return to the days when people wanted to work here.

Pros

Depending on the group you work for, there is flexibility in your schedule for personal needs. The company has stabilized in its work force, and there is a renewed company wide effort at recognizing performance and rewarding loyalty, creativity and those who go above and beyond.

Cons

The company is enormous and there are still a lot of little kingdoms and bureaucratic nightmares that pop up. There are far too many processes that take longer to to complete than the work you are asking to get done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Release the reins a little bit. The trend has been consolidating decisions higher and higher up the chain. The effect is that, for example, a PO to purchase equipment that has been contracted and paid for by a customer regularly takes over 60 days. The order is quick from the factory, but the approval process for the ORC and PO is detrimental to business.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Comp Plans are (were) average or slightly above average. If you get the right VP, it could be a fun and rewarding job (until now).

    Cons

    New Americas Software Leader is a joke. His Victory Plan is nothing more than a snow job and a way to not pay sales reps. Accelerators do not kick in until 118% now and I hear there are more layoffs coming for the inside sales organization. Very broken with delusional Americas Software VP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any chance you could actually make a good hire for once at the Americas level?

    Pros

    Great people - well-educated - want to succeed - incredible legacy of enlightened leadership

    Cons

    Poorly lead - especially the Mark Hurd era - destroyed morale and company culture. Floundered to find it's compass - now knows it's true north, but not aligned within to charge in that direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to make some hard strategic direction choices and commit. Communicate purpose and direction and shift decision-making to lowest level to get traction.
