    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    good benefits, flexibility for working from home, fairly informal atmosphere wrt being able to speak openly with various level of management.

    Cons

    keep taking away benefits, salary increases frozen or limited to very few, laying off people with experience bc they cost the most even when they are within a couple years or less of retirement. making decision that affect how you can do you job and still expect more and more, working evenings and weekends almost a requirment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take into account impact to front line when making the bottom line decisions. don't just focus on making your bonus while ignoring 80% of the workforce that is still running the company even if they are not all top performers

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    HP is pretty good at allowing the employees to have flexible schedules. It is nice to have that flexibility of what your work hours are. The lower management is pretty good and tries to release quality products and cares for the employees.

    Cons

    Besides the flextime, there is little benefit to working for HP. In fact, that is one of the few benefits left. There are a lot of hardworking, experienced people at the company. Over the past several years they have seen nothing but pay decreases and benefit cuts while the stock continues to climb. This strongly implies the upper management has little appreciation for all the people that make the company a success. The people that survived all the layoffs now have a much heavier workload with no benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees with respect and show them that their work is valued. Actions are louder than words and please read the annual employee surveys. Most of the workforce says they they want a job at another company.
