Former Employee - Tech Engineer in Paramus, NJ

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Allowed telecommuting; decent benefits package; great co-workers

Cons

Too much corporate lying; could have done without the quarterly meetings...too "high-school prep rally"ish and a really ridiculous waste of valuable time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't tell employees how great and important they are and then follow it by telling them that their benefits are being cut...especially in order to "...align with industry practices."

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The position was remote and usually had no issues with work-life balance.

    Cons

    Work Force Reduction is a constant issue even if your performance is exceptional and leadership indicates your account will not be impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Account leaders need to do what they say and say what they mean and do not mislead employees.

    Former Employee - Sales and Alliance Management in Denver, CO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Worked with incredible people on fascinating projects and programs. Compensation was fair. Good opportunities to work in a global environment in a variety of roles and functions.

    Cons

    Shift from a "we" are in it together to an its all about "me" culture in the last 10+ years. Too many miss-hires at the senior and junior executive levels.Many individuals who were once motivated by passion or at a minimum by duty are now driven by fear. Weak management development and succession planning. Constant reorganizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do real succession planning. Recreate a culture where you develop and promote from within. Trust people to make good decisions and give them the ability to do it.
