Hewlett Packard is a reasonable place to be for middle of the road employees.

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Tons of lateral movement possible and huge online training options.

Cons

They are not interested in retaining top employees and their salaries and raise policies push this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In technical fields a top employee can be worth multiple lesser ones. You should work to retain them instead of pushing your top minds out the door.

    Pros

    Good products, good service and people who care.

    Cons

    Company miss-managed over the last 10-15 years. Too many CEOs and changing directions has caused the company to lose focus. Currently employees are hanging on waiting out the next work force reduction; keeping their head low. Standardization efforts has cause the company to "manage by metrics" forgetting the reason for the metrics. Process compliance is stifling creativity. Also, continual purchasing of companies versus creating within cause continuous challenges of making it all work together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable your employees the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. reduce reliance on the web portals and allow your managers to manage their employees. Build trust, allow your employees to learn and create.

    Pros

    Being able to work from home, but that will be ending soon

    Cons

    Have not had a raise in over 5 years even with exceptional reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees are the companies best asset. They need to be treated with respect and compensated fairly. I can't take it anymore to hear how much our senior management is making or that Meg got a huge bonus, when I can't even get a cost of living raise.
