I worked at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

The people are great. The benefits are good. There is plenty of challenging work.

Cons

The company is top heavy with management. It has a heavy layer of bureaucracy and politics. While the company is making herculean effort to turn around, it is faced with strong competition. The company has no choice but to down size and thus there is little job security.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Eliminate layers of bureaucracy. Complete the work force reductions quickly so the remaining employees don't need to worry.

    Pros

    LoadRunner is a good product supporting a huge number of protocols and being in the Support team provides a good learning experience and opportunity to work on different protocols.

    Cons

    There is no hiring done in USA and no stability for US engineers since HP is moving support jobs to Costa Rica

    Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Madison, WI
    Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Madison, WI

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

    Pros

    Coworkers. Worked with alot of talented people. Was able to gain alot of valued experience in Medicaid which is highly respected in the HealthCare IT industry.

    Cons

    TOO many managers! They could get rid of more than half the management staff and increase employees wages to be market place competitive. I left this job after 8 1/2 years and literally doubled my salary, because they do not keep up with consistenet raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the experience and knowledge of your more senior staff, other companies do and are willing to pay highly for it. Too many managers!!! Management needs to be trimmed greatly to be more efficient.
