-Current Lack of bonuses and initiative-based compensation
-The lack of initiative-based compensation renders utilization almost a useless number. I feel like I keep working, but don't get rewarded for it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Is it management's problem or not if they keep creating numbers that can't be met? And then punish people for not meeting them by taking away benefits and bonuses? There seems to not be a reason to work hard any more -- just a reason to do enough not to get fired.

    Management is still king, not so much for the workforce.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Local management good and tries hard to do treat people as more than a revenue generator. As an acquired EDS employee, HP has potential for growth if you can be recognized.

    Cons

    No raises, increased health insurance shared portion, career advancement difficult for average employee. Value of the individual seems to be fading, replaced by a push for corporate profits, reduced headcounts, and quick results. EDS and HP proud cultures are gone, replaced by politics and survival tactics. Top management talks much about ethics while cutting employee wages and realizing huge bonuses. No longer a good place to work and hear the implied message, "we are lucky to have a job here". Focus on moving as many jobs out of the U.S. as is possible and as quickly as can be implemented. Other country wages are less and this contributes to bottom line. No loyalty for those who have worked years, many extra hours, bled for the company, only quick term profits and race to be number one. Focus on new sales overriding ability to meet new challenges. Get business, promise solutions, figure it all out later without the human resources needed to complete the task. Overwork the remaining legions, replace the bodies as they fall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take stock of intellectual talent onshore. Restructure pay at the top and share the wealth to all the corporation, not just the top 10% who can direct the compensation into their own pockets.. Leadership includes taking care of the employee as well as the customer and stockholder. They are not mutually exclusive. Remember both HP, Compac, 3Com, EDS, and all the other absorbed companies. Just as the U.S. is a melting pot of citizens, so is HP, reaping the benefits of a diverse and formally motivated workforce.
