    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Big Name company on your resume.

    Cons

    They change the Sales pay to make sure that Sales cannot earn too much, pay is caped. Poor management, too many managers. Unrealistic Quotas, unrefined Goals. Executives don't know what all the ISRs do to bring in business.

    No clear path for advancement.

    Who you drink with matters more to advancement than the sales you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does not listen.

    Great benefits, great pay for my area. Excellent leadership on a local level, and occasional clear paths for advancement.

    Treat your employees like their thoughts matter.

    Pros

    Rewarding customer relationships and relationships with industry experts. Surrounded by innovative, competitive technology and training for the latest industry trends.

    Cons

    Be open to travel and relocation if you are seek advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be a dictator, but rather a servant leader that uplifts and elevates the talent you are managing, so that others might reciprocate this to the peer talent and potentially additionally managed talent.

    Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Conway, AR

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the pros are willingness to help with personal growth, promotions, time-off policies, benefits, culture within the career development area as well as support from peers. That is always a nice thing to have in an office - collaboration is key!

    Cons

    I would have to say there have been limited perks for trips, etc. given that some of my peers get to travel and take incentive trips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we can sweeten up compensation packages and develop a management track, that would be ideal. Otherwise, I am happy working at HP.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is simple, and the hours are flexible. The pay is also pretty good for the area.

    Cons

    There is no job security whatsoever. Everyday you are trying to figure out what the best move is to make to keep a job. All of the jobs are being shipped over seas and to Mexico.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth. Don't lie to keep your employees around until they can successfully train employees overseas and then get rid of them. If everyone thinks they are going to lose their jobs no matter what they lose all motivation to work hard.

    The direct management is great. When there is time off needed the managers are very flexible with that. Being able to work from home is also great so you are never behind in work. The benefits are awesome some of the best ive ever had

    Have to be able to create a schedule....then not follow it. Some days you have things come up that disrupt your day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lets get on one accord sometimes we as inside sales reps get pulled into several different directions
