    Cons

    Salary is un-even across different HP groups
    Salary for existing employees is low compared to industry in some groups
    Horizontal career movements are not easy across org
    HR needs to improve talent retention policies, current policies are failing or not being enforced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Workplace is dull needs to be more vibrant and energetic.
    Re-organization - select new managers carefully, see they have good people skills.
    Save good talent from leaving.
    Plan to Investment in R&D is only on paper. Cost cutting is high.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working environment, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Having a global development with contributors, in Malaysia, India, Shanghai really complicates the design experience all for the goal of trying to save money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructuring and merging every 6 months just complicates the alliances and work structure that employees strive to meet. New unfamiliar teams, schedules and communication all suffer just to save a few bucks. Do not get me wrong, from a business I understand the principles of making more revenue. But all of these money saving efforts come at the expense of the employees.
