Pros

The pay and benefits package is competitive. In some roles there is a good work life balance if you have counterparts in other regions who can assume responsibility outside of your regions working hours. There are programs to develop employees though they are being cut back.

Cons

Business decisions don't reflect the publicized company values. Big cost cutting efforts and outsourcing at the expense of the customer experience makes working in support difficult and stressful. Multi-year work force reduction program ongoing.

    Pros

    It is hard to find a pro working for HP as they run their business based on cutting heads to meet their bottom dollar.

    Cons

    Entirely too many work force reductions over the years - especially the older seasoned experienced individuals. One could conclude the work force reductions are based on age, but trying to prove that legally would be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone to run HP that actually cares about the employees and not how much money goes into their own personal bank accounts.

  2. Great place to work!
