I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

Pros

GREAT people in the general working population

Cons

Lacking clarity of vision and VERY POOR people management skills. Speaks of the value of the person but when it comes time to let people go often done in an old school value system and structure . Meg Whitman's value has yet to trickle down her organization .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be open with people about the turnaround and their job security a bit sooner than a two hour notice of termination .

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I don't have any good things to say about my short experience with HP.

    Cons

    HP purchased the company I worked at for 15 years. They cut everyones salary by 20% and vacation if it was over 5 weeks. Then in waves, laid everyone off during a 2 year period.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of fellow new hires
    Technology starting point
    Career advancement (outside HP!)
    Volunteer Spirit of facility (Brought by previous leadership; current doesnt care)

    Cons

    Turnover
    VP who runs MSC; does not listen and is arrogant (ran off great people)
    New leader from outside is clueless
    Backfill hiring (swamped!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the changes. You need to get rid of the VP and his "new people". They are arrogant and have ruined something positive.
