OK to work for, but watch your back.

Pros

The people I worked with were great. I enjoyed my job but the deadlines imposed were not conducive to work life balance. There is opportunity for job growth if you want to spend more time at work and less time with your family.

Cons

As I mentioned above, project deadlines were set without understanding the scope of the project or the number or resources available. You ultimately ended up cramming for quite some tome to meet the various deadlines and milestones.

Employees do not seem to be valued. If you did a great job you entire career at HP they will get rid of you in a heartbeat without seeing if you could fit in within another department or group.

The Voice of the Workplace survey is a joke. It's seems like it's simply done to satisfy some requirement and not to use the information to make HP a better place to work at.

Most employees took a pay cut and we never got it back while upper management received large bonuses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your people. Treat them with respect and you in return will receive respect.

    Pros

    1. Flexible working hours and work from home option.
    2. Good teammates and in general competent and intelligent workforce.
    3. Brand name (or atleast at one time it was) on resume.
    4. Decent opportunities to move jobs within HP (No comparable increase in salaries though).

    Cons

    1. Disconnect with upper level management in terms of roadmap and employee satisfaction.
    2. MARK HURD is a highly disliked leader of the company from an employee standpoint.
    3. Low benefits in terms of industry standards.
    4. No rewards for hard work / key performance leading to indifferent work culture.
    5. Absolutely no fun stuff like team building activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point in advising. All Senior level mgmt care is for growing their millions.

    Pros

    I truly enjoy working with many of the people here.
    The company is very flexible in terms of working hours

    Cons

    Cuts, Cuts, and more Cuts!
    Closing down and selling off many of its buildings
    HP is no longer "Invents"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please replace Mark Hurd with someone that knows how to bring HP back to being the innovator it once was!
