Pros

flex time as long as your always here. Paid time off, and sick days. opertunity to get bad health benifits.

Cons

paycuts, you get to work lots of uncompensated overtime, work weekends, 24 hour on call and threat of layoffs. Yes its great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give back paycuts, hire professionsals instead of cheap intern and contractors, stop slashing benifits. improve the bottom line without the slash and burn.

    Pros

    management by fear. HP culture GONE.
    absolutely NO promotional opportunities. Morale sucks.
    company became extremely antiquated and inefficient over time.
    Employees get paycutts while upper management cashes big $$$

    Pros

    Well known company which allows you to get meetings and access to executives as a sales rep. Big company with diverse technology portfolio that you can leverage for career experience while there. As a shareholder, you may like the market performance of HP, but as an employee you feel no joy in these results

    Cons

    Everything is about cost management at HP; so do not expect raises or bonuses- even if it is well deserved. Manangement mantra is "reduce cost and grow topline rev" at the expense of the individual achiever. Benefits have been reduced, from the stock purchse plan, to 401k and healthcare. Company is huge and employee motivation from management does not exsist. As a shareholder, you may like the market performance of HP, but as an employee you feel no joy in these results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A great company does not just make the shareholders happy, but that's what HP is all about. The spirit and commitment of the individual contributor has been lost in your quest of pleasing Wall Street.
