HP Way is Out

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsLarge, global company with diverse job opportunities around the world.
Shareholder and customer focused.
Very talented employees.
The company will allow job sharing opportunties.

ConsBenefits are no longer competitive compared to the industry. Cost cutting has gone to far with permanently reducing employees salaries by 5-10%, stock purchase plan with no purchase discount or matching, medical plans that are 2X more expensive for the employees than other silicon valley companies, 401K company matching is now discretionary by the company.

No work/life balance. Employees are required to work very long hours due to workforce reductions and globalizing jobs while the workload continues to grow. Employee morale is very low and employees don't feel valued. Many extremely qualified employees are leaving the company.

Limited investment in innovation.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management (VP & Higher) manages in a very directive & aggressive style. Tops down management style leading with fear and intimidation. Creativity & innovation are stiffled. Senior management is driven by greed due to their huge variable compensation packages. Bring back the HP Way and the executive leadership that share similar values such as trust, respect, integrity, and innovation that once made HP a great place to work and where employees are valued.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    HP is ripe for a change

    Program Manager (Current Employee) Zürich (Switzerland)

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros: I think that the traditional culture still being held by most of the employees (older) are very much appreciated. There is a good sense… Cons: Currently one of the most worrisome problems is the lack of management willing to hear the truth. They only want to hear what is… Advice to Senior Management: Be humble and strong enough to ask for the truth… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
