Current Employee - Technician
Current Employee - Technician
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

-there are some good people left here if you can find them
if you find one, i'm told their guidance is priceless for navigating the politics

Cons

-politics rules everything its who you know not what
-low pay
-very low morale
-management uses the stick instead of the carrot for motivation
-little recognition
-quality comes second to quantity (profit)
-most employees are new 0-5 or old 20+

Advice to Management

Most of you must go. Some of HPs cultural attributes must be recaptured and retained for this company to remain viable as it is rotting from within. You are not rewarding some of your best people. Your subordinates are not slaves. Stop sending jobs out of the USA.
