Management needs to be rejuvenized.

Pros

Work with talented engineers and employees who are passionate.

Cons

Even good engineers not in the good ol' boy's club get put into the wrong side of the bell curve. Bad management continues to plague this company.

Advice to Management

Replace the "forced distribution system" or whatever you call it now. It's still FDS.

    Pros

    The more recent years have been better. We finally have a good CEO, and the projects have become more engaging and interesting for both the company and the employees. Pay increases have been good in the past 2-3 years. The work environment is also pretty laid back; as long as you get your work done, work hours can be pretty flexible.

    Cons

    My career started here with pay cuts and projects that seemed to go nowhere. My pay increases have caught up after being stagnant for very long time, but I know others at HP have not be as fortunate. Many have left seeking better opportunities elsewhere, as their wasn't much room for job advancement in their positions. Only in the last 1-2 years has that changed for me to be better.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for advancement for lower-level and young people. Keep up with giving out the RSUs and other pay increases. Continue to provide a steady sense of direction and don't give up so easily.


  2. Overall satisfying experience working with very talented co-workers

    Pros

    Good pay and work life balance. Opportunity to work on an application that extended product life-cycle.

    Cons

    Too long ago to remember

    Advice to Management

    If you knew layoffs are looming, please don't on the non performing employees for 5 years before they are let go. If it was done proactively, many of need not have let go.
