    Former Employee - Business Development Manager in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Business Development Manager in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Large company provided opportunities to move into different roles. Worked with very good people at middle management levels. Strong interest in developing and delivering high quality products & services.

    Cons

    Frequent organizational changes combined with overall weak business results created constant job security anxiety. Promotions were sometimes delayed or blocked by HR and various "freezes". Increasingly political environment - decisions were made based on individual's or immediate group interest vs. what's best for the company. Challenged to obtain institutional support for new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More emphasis on people manager's training to manage others. Probably the biggest key to employee satisfaction. More use of video collaboration tools for remote communication vs. audioconferences.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities if you know were to look and you build a network of peers. Opportunities are there to be taken

    Cons

    The company is very large, being part of large Matrix organizations you can get lost in the shuffle and the size of the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to reduce the number of emplyees to managers, they try to do the best they can with the large organizations but there are some casulties of good employees, maybe a better peer program would assist.
