Pros

Company has very good ethical anchor. Employees are frequently reminded through mandatory and effective online training.
Senior management frequently communicate goals.
Company has very clear vision. This is to be a one stop shop. Every move the senior team make echoes this goal.

Cons

Frequency of organisational tweaks can be frustrating. Cascading changes are easy to make but their effects are felt long after managment have made the change.
Resembles a government beaurocracy owing to it's huge size, far from nimble and our competitors know it and play on this fact with clients against HP during bids.
No pay rise for many years (pay/benefit cuts instead).

Advice to Management

Senior management should not enjoy a merry go round of job reshuffles. If a senior manager does not perform (thus causing the company to underform in a particular sector) sack him/her and not people who have far less control over the direction of the business.

    Pros

    Knowledge sharing is good, and the rapport between colleagues is also good, and there are opportunities to work in different areas.

    Cons

    Subjected to economic changes and the management seems only interested to protect themselves at the expense of subordinates, thus very political.

    Advice to Management

    Need to offer job stability and also to have interest of the employee in job and career development, and not to get too political.

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible schedule. Other than managers employees are friendly and are concerned about our customers.

    Cons

    Work Force Reduction is taking place often. Thi is managements way of weeding out the employees who are bold enough to have an oppinion that is contrary to theirs. There is a saying at HP; "We only have happy employees here at HP, are you happy?"

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so greedy! HP employees that face customers should not be punished for broken processes and tools. Focus on fixing the business and you will see more than enough savings to then reward employees that care and exceed expectations.
