Former Employee - Builder in Houston, TX
Former Employee - Builder in Houston, TX

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Decent Pay, Great Resume builder, Great Co workers, Diverse environment

Cons

Unorganized, discrimination, too many layoffs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

What is the point of knocking non experienced computer people down if this is a place where experience should be built? Stay humble and remember you had to start from somewhere as well.

    Pros

    Good at creating a high level vision. An industry legend that you want to see succeed

    Cons

    Lost ability to innovate and execute. Management out of touch with the field...and not interested in addressing the issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the field. They have a lot to offer.

    Stability is returning, financial discipline is better, but employee morale is poor.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great reputation and excellent enterprise server products.

    Cons

    Some ridiculously bad managers exist. Six month performance reviews are not being done. Some internal transfers are 'bait & switch'. Employee applies to open requisition one level higher, is accepted, and transferred. After transfer, realizes it was completed on a completely different job requisition as a lateral transfer with no promotion. Some employees have seen 1% pay increase in over 3 years. Some managers have 75 to 100 direct reports and don't initiate contact for months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cheerleading. Identify and reward the performing employees, before they leave. HP still has heartburn & indigestion with EDS. The cultural & procedural differences between the traditional HP side and the EDS side are extreme; sell EDS.
