    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were fantastic. Managers cared about employee feedback and success. Great benefits and incentives from day one. Lots of industry knowledge and certifications available.

    Cons

    Unusual salary/commission payment schedule. Lack of productivity automation. Partners and sales reps could never get on the same page, causing customers to be bombarded with calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For a technology company, they have a huge lack in internal software and productivity development. Instead of writing software to track our performance, we had to keep up with it ourselves and enter daily into an Excel file. Spent too much time trying to meet organizational criteria and not enough making sales calls. Need to get partners and sales reps under unified CRM tool to reduce organizational chaos.

    Pros

    Lots of fellow new hires
    Technology starting point
    Career advancement (outside HP!)
    Volunteer Spirit of facility (Brought by previous leadership; current doesnt care)

    Cons

    Turnover
    VP who runs MSC; does not listen and is arrogant (ran off great people)
    New leader from outside is clueless
    Backfill hiring (swamped!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the changes. You need to get rid of the VP and his "new people". They are arrogant and have ruined something positive.
