Current Employee - Manager II  in  Herndon, VA
Current Employee - Manager II in Herndon, VA

Pros

Good people at HP ES, a lot of folks who have been there (legacy EDS) for a very long time; they know their jobs and their customers. Lot's of former military, and a very military-friendly environment

Cons

Benefits packages are bare bones, facilities in Herndon do not compare well to competitors in the area. Need to see the 2008 pay levels restored.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the new CEO: focus on hardware quality, and making that hardware available (i.e. certified) competitive on the merits for Government customers. HP may be the biggest PC maker, but the quality is poor, and there are too many product lines. Scale back a bit, focus on a quality product in each segment, and then market the heck out of it. Focus on WebOS and make a true business-quality product. Find ways to make HP product something customers demand, rather than something we sell. Sort out the internal wrangling - why is it cheaper for ES to sell other vendors products?

    Current Employee - Solutions Architect in Cupertino, CA

    Pros

    Nice place to work, love the job. But family life balance is great and management is appreciative of good performers.

    Cons

    salaries might not be as competitive as you like, and sometimes you feel like your lost in the crowd but its not all that bad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should increase pay and give promotions to senior level employees so they stay motivated. A true career path framework should also be developed

    Hurd's Legacy at TSG in HP

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Solutions Architect  in  Cupertino, CA
    Current Employee - Solutions Architect in Cupertino, CA

    Pros

    Great people to work with, brightest still coming into the company, still doing great work. We still have great customers to engage with, keeps the work fresh. New products & technology to learn and support and integrate into customer solutions.

    Cons

    Anual bonus is at the whim of your manager, but he or she will only have $x in a pool to divide among all the elegible employees that report to them. So there is never enough to give the entire team a good bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just go back to the one percentage for all employees based on the anual pay. Sound, fair, logical and it works, VP's will loose the 300% bonus but IC's might see 10% once and a while.
