Pros

After a decade of ignoring their engineers, HP is finally figuring out that it cannot function without engineers. What a concept! The new CEO is trying to restore benefits that have been cut. There is now some hope that HP can return to its former glory provided the company continues to perform in the market place.

Cons

Morale is still low within the workforce. Some of the best people have moved on. Lots of bad decisions made over the years need to be reverted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Engineers are not interchangeable cogs like CEOs and accountants!

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits compared to other companies in the Willamette Valley. Some positions have great opportunities for learning and promotion, especially within Engineering.

    Cons

    As the Inkjet business has declined in Corvallis and jobs have been shipped over seas, a lot of bad behaviors have emerged within the management team, leading to in-fighting and back stabbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold managers accountable to performing in alignment with the HP Way, especially upper and middle management. Too many times managers are not held to the same standards as hourly staff, even though they should be held to a higher standard.
