A silicon valley tradition sheds tradition for international competitiveness.

Marketing Program Manager (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

ProsBroad product lines, opportunities for international assignments or moving among business units; leader in many markets presents interesting work. Ability to work with highly-talented engineers, or on the marketing side, global ad agencies. Hiring in some areas. Nowadays, that's saying something.

ConsIn my view, becoming fiscally aggressive to the point of stifling innovation, morale, and satisfaction. Average compensation, which has recently become more performance-driven. This is a plus and minus - top performers, as perceived by their manager, can receive higher bonuses; while the engine of the firm, the 'mid 60%', will receive middling bonuses and tiny / no raises. Can require moving business units or geography to advance.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep walking the aisles. Spend time talking with employees, like you do with customers. Are we getting the necessary tools? Is our infrastructure adequate? How are work conditions and morale? Is cost cutting serving future competitiveness, or are we too focused on senior management's concern over stock prices?
