Engineering is a dying skill at HP

Electrical Engineer (Current Employee)
Vancouver, WA

ProsThe Engineers and peers at HP are top notch. I would gladly work with anyone on the site again. The Engineers are highly skilled and very motivated. Lower level management is doing the best that they can with what little tools that they have been given.

ConsThe company has turned it's back on the employees. We are regarded as liabilities rather than the assets that we really are. The bottom lines of the real estate and IT groups are more important than actually serving the workforce and enabling us to do our jobs.
There is a real sense that Mark Hurd hates paying to develop products and that he would much rather just buy up companies that design a product.
Benefits have eroded completely since I started at HP, and I no longer have any sense of loyalty to HP.
Most design work at HP is now outsourced.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart realizing that your employees ARE your company. Without us, there would be no products and no revenue. We already have a steady loss of the top talent, and once the economy turns around, nothing that you can offer us will keep your key employees around.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
