Meg's HP is a Much Improved Place to Work

Director Learning & Development (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsNew CEO has brought back a management culture that tries to take care of it's people. The prior Hurd regime found every drop of blood to squeeze out of it's workforce. The company faces a long term turnaround and has made some progress but still has a ways to go. It is making investments in it's people- especially in learning & development, talent management, and in a variety of programs to improve employee engagement.

ConsLike any company there are good and not so good managers. Middle management is still under significant pressure, so expectations are high. Expect a long work day, especially in global jobs. Also as you would expect company bonuses fluctuate with company performance and this year has not been great.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more candid on business conditions. Don't sugar coat the internal earnings messages.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
