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 Management

Engineers are not interchangeable cogs like CEOs and accountants!

    Pros

    good work life balance and ability to work from home

    Cons

    - 5% salary cut (although they are giving it back)
    - no raises
    - cut benefits
    - management not trustworthy, afraid of senior management
    - senior management dis-attached from the employees
    - lack of career development/advancement (there is a lot of talk about, but that's about it: just talk)

    Advice to Management

    Restore the benefits, give raises to people who deserve them, make it so it is possible to have a career in HP.

    Pros

    Hewlett Packard has good people to interact. HP also has a good reputation in the industry and a good history.

    Cons

    The management team is very short sighted. There have been draconian cuts in benefits and funding productivity improvements. There is no interest in funding any items that improve your productivity.

    Advice to Management

    The idea to lavish riches on upper management that cut our benefits and reduce our productivity has produced low morale. Randy Mott gets a 22 million dollar bonus for taking away software and creating massive inefficiencies in people getting their jobs done. Employees would accept some reduction in beenefits if management also did. Please start to consider ideas to improve productivity- even a modust spend here would increase morale and productivity.
