I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Balance of life and work is controlled by the employee and the flexibility is built in to help employees establish a good balance

Cons

They have removed all compensation and the only thing you get is a paycheck. i guess that better than no paycheck

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at the overall compensation and how we recognize results. Currntly upper management has more control and ownership of how well the business performs but yet the employee has to take the hits when the business doesn't perform.

    Employee treatment went out of the window along with gross margin reduction

    Pros

    Global perspective. High quality of employees. Good training programs.

    Cons

    Very long work hours. Poor treatment of employees during current downturn. Outsourcing and cost cuts make it very difficult to make a difference. Almost impossibel to contact IT support or Purchasing/Procurement or HR or get any IT work done or . . .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to treat employees with respect (and ethically) during the cost cuts and staff reduction process. Large mismatch between stated policy and actual practice.

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, good company for breaking into the industry, overall good working environment, quality of engineers at the company is very high

    Cons

    Low salaries in comparison to the industry standard, management tends to value experience over performance, HP has become a bottom line company rather than an innovative company, where schedule is the only driving force, employee benefits are routinely trimmed back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move back towards promoting innovation. HP is losing customers due to a lack of competitive products. This has stemmed from continued cost cutting measures making it nearly impossible to continue to produce high quality and innovative products. Instead, we are only producing the same thing repackaged over and over again. This will come back to haunt us at some point in the future.
