Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

Pros

Very diverse in opportunities that are available. Clients are always demanding and HP steps up to the task of meeting and exceeding their expectations. Most individuals are very hard working and do a great job.

Cons

Very large and can be bureaucratic. Too many manager in the chain of command that are disconnected with the work. Individuals can get lost in the shuffle between opportunities if not well networked because span of control at the lowest levels of management can be very high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust and empower your mid level leaders to do the right thing and make the right decisions. Stop second guessing their judgments and opinions. This process causes too much rework and expense.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at HP due to the people I worked with, very positive and helpful. No one will leave you hanging.

    Cons

    Management constantly sends mixed messages. "Our people are very important... sorry we are laying you off." "We are hitting our numbers and on the right track... due to budget cuts we won't pay for equipment that you need at home to do your job." And so on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business climate is tough, everyone understand that, but when we aren't firing on all cylinders don't take it out on those doing what they are told to do. Look at your management that is making these decisions.
