    So much focus on reports, dashboards and presentations to show that we're 'producing'

    Pros

    Home office - able to schedule calls, meetings from home. No travel or commute - saves gas, car expenses and stress.

    Cons

    Home Office - but as of November 2013 most employees will be forced to drive to an HP office vs working out of the home.
    So much for work/life balance, now that folks will be stuck in traffic, contributing to pollution, traffic and have to find other ways to take care of before/after school kid care.

    So much focus on making 'pretty' presentations, dashboards, bubble/cartoon reports, etc. for upper management to show that all the money being spent, resources used, etc. is achieving minute financial goals.

    Took the EER and haven't been this happy in YEARS !!!
    Have so many opportunities to choose from, and the pay, work/life balance is great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Design better, more innovative, and quality products. Design what customers (commercial, consumer) want to buy.

    Pros

    Opportunities to move within different areas or change roles every few years. However these are normally lateral moves or rotations with no opportunities to advance or get promoted.

    Cons

    One of the pros used to be work life balance with the opportunity to work from home. This is changing for many of the employees especially in Finance. Next I will quote another review I agree with. "The finance systems and processes are much too difficult. We spend way too much time getting the numbers and making sure they are right and they "tie" between the numerous reports. Even directors, managers, and high level analysts are spending unnecessary time doing this. There is too much time wasted on internal debates that finance gets stuck in between and even need to facilitate, and that ultimately do not impact HP's overall earnings."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take actions that will truly have a positive impact on our business. Get back to being innovative and turn the company around. This involves partly listening to your employees but more on taking decisive action and tough decisions. Please giving employees the tools they need to be successful. And finally recognizing and compensating your employees fairly. .
