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

    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.

    Pros

    Working here has been a great experience. The opportunities to change jobs is better than leaving the company. They want to keep you and not get rid of you.

    Cons

    Obviously, no start-up perks (free food and drinks). Also, may be boring for those who need to be pushed along and told what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those who know their jobs well, and who contribute to the success of the products.
