Current Employee - Human Resources Business Partner

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Fast paced and engaging, cutting age HR planning and techniques, ability to learn and take on as much as desired - go broad or go deep within HR arena is all available

Cons

Overloaded HR business partners and HR employees, high HR to manager ratio, good support to hi-level managers by HR but little support available to supervisors and lower level people managers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware of the trade-off of such high HR to manager ratios, be aware of increasing general employee attrition US wide as economy improves due to salary cuts, benefit changes etc.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    There are none anymore, Its a tough place to be an individual contributor or lower level manger as I am. Its impossible to be an advocate for your employees anymore.

    Cons

    i HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH RITE SIZING AND RITE SKILLING PROJECTS, iT REALLY MEANS FIRE THE OLDER EXPERIENCED GUYS THAT ARE MAKING TO MUCH MONEY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP, ITS TIME TO INVEST IN PEOPLE WITH REAL PROGRAMS AND OPPORTUNITIES. You can put lipstick on a pig, but its still apig.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    can work from home - although can be hard to "Turn off" work
    pays the bills
    fellow employees are hard working and want to succeed

    Cons

    don't feel valued ... no rewards or recognition
    constant lay-offs
    lots of early morning and late night meetings
    employee morale really low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make employees feel valued - and not just via lip service. Spread the incentives to all employees - not just upper management.
