    Not a clue about how to treat their employees!!

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Camp Hill, PA

    ProsWas a job I had for over 4 years during the "Great Recession" it was nice to have a job.

    ConsPaid 20 -30K below median pay scale. Treated very poorly. Very low scale on the job training. Felt like a number. Some areas were managed like a fraternity/high school clique. Management by fear. Annual pay increases did not occur three out of the 4 years employed there. Never felt as if the ship was being steered in the right direction.

    Case and point, HP had 3 CEO's in two years. HP has not come up with any new innovations to propel them forward or capitalize on any of their company purchases. Examples include: the BILLIONS of dollars used to purchase EDS, that was a bust. The stock prices went in the toilet over that one, and the Autonomy debacle also has caused serious doubts about board decisions. They spent more money making bad financial decisions when they should have been pumping those monies into R and D, Management training. and annual salary increases. Definitely not a good employment choice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReinvent from the top down, make good financial decisions, accept blame and take personal responsibility when making any decision. Listen to your employees more deeply, and pay them fairly based on the work level and results provided. Pray that your company is around in 50 years or someone like Oracle will own you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A place where careers begin or go to die...

    Investigator (Former Employee)
    Camp Hill, PA

    ProsDecent pay for the level or lack of responsibility; management is not over-your-shoulder watching you; scheduling vacation is easy- because we fought to get it that way.

    ConsNepotism first and foremost in the Camp Hill office. Also, it helps who you are married to or sleeping with to advance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease stop acting as though there is not an obvious, palpable disparity in the way you treat and pay your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Acquired from EDS

    Software Developer (Current Employee)
    Camp Hill, PA

    ProsFlexible work location and flexible hours

    ConsDiscontinued pension contribution. Pay cuts. Company image after the Mark Hurd incident.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a morale problem because compensation is highly concentrated at the top at the expense of the rank and file professionals who serve customers. People will leave when the economy picks up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    EDS Employee Funded Bailout is Working for HP

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Camp Hill, PA

    ProsTo gain experience, to get HP on your resume. Plan to make your money somewhere else and use HP as a stepping stone.

    ConsAll HP employees were given a 5% pay cut. EDS employees were given an additional 10% pay cut that we refer to as the "EDS Employee Funded HP Bailout". To give employees 1 month's notice that their salary will be dropped 15% is not acceptable. Everyone I work with is de-motivated. There is no guarentee of a bonus and salary has been permanently cut 5% so there's no point in going the extra mile. Our client executive was heard to exclaim in alarm, "people are leaving on time!!!"

    Advice to Senior ManagementHP managers are supposed to be innovators, right? Well, I'm just a worker bee, but even I can figure out that the company will make more money if salaries are slashed...that's not particularly innovative. Products, service and reputation will make money for HP. Sucking the life out of employees and offering no motivation via compensation will not contribute to innovative products or world-class service. Put your thinking caps on boys and girls! The stock price isn't going up because you're great managers, it's going up because you're robbing the employees.

    And just a note of caution: I, like everyone else, am waiting for the job market to break and when it does, I'm gone. And I won't give 2 weeks notice, either. Since the only thing that will be released to a prospective employer are my dates of service, no comment on re-hire, and no recommendation, I'll clean out my desk and hand in my resignation same day. I hope others do the same.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
