    Opportunities comes depending on market trend or availability of client projects, downside is that job security will always be at risk. Bonuses are dependent on ogranization performance and not only individual performance.

    Pros

    Flexibility ( but becomes less and less )

    Cons

    If you are a contractor, expect that you will not be inclusively included, but more or less only to be given the tasks without knowing the context, and what happen Every 3 months you will hear news and rumor about retrenchment, and will see colleagues laid off Used to have good principles called HP Way, but seems these have been long vanished

    Advice to Management

    meritocracy should be in the first place, not discriminate between employment status

  9. Strategy change challenges

    Pros

    Good benefits, with good organization culture practice still intact to motivate employees sense of involvement of the good historical success of the company.

    Cons

    Challenges of constant changes with the development and strategy changes in consideration of the market drivers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees up-to-date with the development, of the high-level business strategy. In recent years, the operational employees left out of the strategic directions of the company.


  10. Lot of trust from company, for eg: leave is automatic approve when u apply. No need to submit medical certificate, just keep it for 2 years in case there is a audit. Employee are expected to have the highest level of integrity.

    Pros

    Jobs are split into very fine portion so each team looks at only specific area, unlike some local company where individual are overload with tons of work which result in loss of focus.

    Cons

    One might fall into comfort zone after a while and lost the fighting spirit. Another cons is it is very difficult to get promoted. There 6 level of management, individual contributor, people manager, director, vp, senior vp and CEO. As an USA company, it is very difficult for an non USA person to reach the level of director, but I think it is reasonable practice. Due to this reason, some folks are still individual contributor even at very senior age.

    Advice to Management

    Have more level of leadership, when a manager has more than 10 individual contributors to look after, it is difficult to focus and to give guidance. Have a system where a senior engineer or senior IC has some junior folks reporting to them. Limit the number of reporting to be less than 6 or 7. It also give people more motivation to work hard and be promoted.

    Pros

    Great People and Talent. All willing to do the right thing for company and customers.

    Cons

    Too focused on Cost Cutting and did not invest in R&D under previous CEO's but of late has restarted this investment. Hopefully this spurs HP to it's former glory days.
