I worked at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Good for hardware and infrastructure sales and services.

Cons

Poor employee support, and poor management of application and software services.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a lack of application / software experience in upper managment. The take over of EDS could be much more profitable and positive if managment included experienced application people. Decisions are based too much on polics and percieved sales impact rather than rational analysis.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Good compensation package. Fair treatment even for contractual employees.

    Lack of support from regional management. Regional management unable to make timely decision and give precise solution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove incompetent resources from their management position. Regional product manager put personal agenda over company's best interest. Poor decision making affects the project progress, damages customer relationship and team morale.
