Current Employee - Account Manager in Columbus, OH
Current Employee - Account Manager in Columbus, OH

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

Pros

Great products, good life-work balance, good pay

Cons

Weak mid-level managers and poor direction from top management. Every six months you are wondering if you will have a job due to restructuring and attempts to "mask" or mislead financials. Hiring "B" level staff to lower costs. Always chasing your compensation...if you can even figure out how you are paid each half.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide clear direction and stick with it for longer than six months. Stop operating in the "gray"

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment from a people perspective, had a lot of fun
    Work-life balance initiatives somehow acceptable
    Well-known brand, strong company culture

    Cons

    This company is stuck to 10 years ago; don't expect a hi-tech environment!
    Totally incompetent management
    Far too large: it takes ages to make decisions and implement changes, and internal processes are designed with a goal to further complicate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on all the above!

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    luxury meetings, travel, lavish appearance

    Cons

    1. Too many layers and too big. No one knows what happens and where.
    2. A lot of tricky folks running the company. WFR FOR GIVING WRONG INFO TO THE SHARE HOLDERS AS IF THEY HAVE GAINS> BY FIRING 50,000 and more folks HP is saving millions and showing it as a gain in their books. ALl lies! No direction! Meg should be fired and she must pay back all the money she made in stocks.3. WFR wrong people. Most of the people who work there are not real IT folks. people who has been there for a long time should let go.5. Bad management 6. Stop hiring friends and laid off people. 7. By bringing people to Sunnyvale will not solve problems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. DO NOT WFR people!
    2. Meg can not handle this job clearly.
    3. Get rid of Software or give direction
    4. Meg brought on board wrong people like George Kadifa, Bernd Slotter and the new person.
