    Great for working parents

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

    ProsThe best part of my job is that I can work from home without anyone lifting an eyebrow, as long as I don't have customer meeetings scheduled for that day. Excellent for work-life balance!

    ConsNo big opportunities to switch roles if you want a career change - since experience is deeply valued, you are expected to have already done work related to the position you are applying for.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Service desk agent

    ProsWorking as a service desk agent at HP was a great experience. The management was happy as long as we did our job well. They were fairly flexible with working hours.

    ConsAs long as you know how to talk and have some technical knowledge, it's pretty easy.

    Great company, bad management

    Solution Consultant (Former Employee) Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

    ProsGreat assets and a history to be proud of. Had a very strong knowledge management culture from the HP and Digital legacy. Huge opportunity to advance and learn a lot in one of the worlds largest IT companies.

    ConsFocused to much in acquisitions rather than innovation, leading to mismanaged and expensive product lines over time as the minds behind the innovations dropped of. Huge organisation leading to large overhead that killed the margins and competitive advantage in the services business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to the roots. HP is a product company, not a services company. Get behind the policy of being first or second in every product and market segment you compete in.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A huge machine with high internal friction

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

    ProsGood experience to have on your CV. Opportunities to work from home. Good to have the experience of working in a global organization and seen the pros and cons of outsourcing and right-shoring.

    ConsPoor and slow internal tools and processes. Most often extremely long decision paths. No mandatory pay reviews related to promotions or increased responsibility.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo strict cost control most probably often cost more money than it saves. Give managers in low- and intermediate level more financial responsibility!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
