No opinion of CEO

Pros

-work life balance -Big company name -some good developers -some director level is also very technical also sharing the knowledge

Cons

- showing is the major not your work, this makes people frustrated. - too many meetings - facilities are not that good.

Advice to Management

Be more technical and make information released openly. assign work in a more balanced way, people all do the tech jobs and share the boring daily work.

    Pros

    Good Company brand name Nice if you are acquired (for the first 2 years) Pretty good retention bonus, about the only reason to stay

    Cons

    Soul crushing environment, subject to political whims Support functions (HR, Finance, IT, Real estate) essentially run the company to fulfill their metrics Executive bonuses are insane compared to rest of industry No technology vision, no project can last more than 9 months. HP Invent has sadly become a sad joke

    Advice to Management

    Look to innovative companies, Netapp, Apple for future growth. You're acquiring companies, squeezing out cost to make IRB commitments over 2 years, and then ending up with nothing. I'm sure you'll get out before the collapse occurs in 3 years

    Pros

    Good compensation Ample time off - good work life balance Employees treated with respect Embraced agile methodologies Use of open source

    Cons

    Excessive engineer job outsourcing to low cost geographies (India, China, etc). Outsourced real work product quality spotty at best - low level management must paint rosy story since they know their career & evaluation count on it Inability to gain market share for software products obtain through acquired software companies (products die off quickly) Business models have hardware product mentality when it comes to software - failure to generate profits for longer term. Upper Management changed to frequently - no accountability, make decisions move on to next group before effects of their decision are known Difficult for software engineer to move within organization - too much fear of pending job loss

    Advice to Management

    Run the software division of HP more like a software company instead of hardware company in order to generate larger profit margins for acquired software products. Better balance of outsourcing with real accountability.
