I worked at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

I felt that I was well compensated. I enjoyed the sense of team. I thought that the caliber of employee was very high.

Cons

Too politcal. Middle level management was not willing to take risks. The culture does not support innovation. HP is slow to market with leading technology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take chances. Create an entrepenuerial culture. Too many processes are required to get anything done with hamstrings innovation. Be less focused on the analytics and more focused on the market.

    The HP Way is DEAD

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    HP employees are great, they are the only reason this behometh is able to function at all

    Cons

    Employees are not valued at all anymore. The new HP is the anti-thesis of what Bill and Dave started.
    We continue to loose benefits and salary, while Mark Hurd makes millions ($122 million in 2009)
    The values that Dave and Bill started this great company with are dead. There is no respect or valuing of individual contributors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the current management style and you'll ruin this company completely. For a company that once thrived on innovation, the current management team completely stifles any sense of creativity.

    No longer a great place to work

    Pros

    Still some great people to work with.

    Cons

    No innovation and a misrable place to work, Mr Hurd has killed the HP Way and he has taken the soal out of the company. The company is now run by bean counters so saving a dime is what is important these days. Quality products, innovation, technology leadership, great customer experiences, all what HP used to stand for are gone. So if you are good at developing poor quality products and lousy customer experiences, this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some real leaders. Bring back the HP way and value your employees.
