Pros

HP is family focused and cares about employees they are working out the kinks of keeping good employees and dropping dead weight. I think over all HP is going to preform more to the standard of the client and focusing on things that drive the market.

Cons

HP is poor in giving salary and bonuses, they seem to care more about holding the money they have vs. putting it into the employees. They don't seem to understand that with out us they have no business.

Advice to Management

Care more about keeping up with competitors salary ranges.then about making a buck, keep the people you have happy and not worry so much about how large your margin is. Also we are a HW company not a software company.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If all you care about is short term pay, they're competitive

    Cons

    No respect for employees
    Very political
    Very bureacratic
    Executive leaders with no integrity
    Executives with NO interpersonal leadership skills
    They tout great career opportunities due to their size, but do little to really provide that chance.

    Advice to Management

    Take actions to restore the culture Dave and Bill created, I.e. high performing company THATvalues it's employees. Dave and Bill believed that both employees and customers drive HPs success. Currently employees are treated like dispensable assets.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    good name on resume
    good site
    awesome boss - people manager who encourages my career development
    awesome department - Image and Printing Group they really want their employees to advance
    Site closure whole week of Christmas to New Years
    Good benefits and perks like week of daycare, concierge service, employee purchase plans for HP products and loads of other companies including cars

    Cons

    If you are not in a good department with a good manager it can be horrible. I hear sales is dreadful. The IT department is segerated to each division so it is hard to get a full view of IT. Typical big company politics.

    Advice to Management

    HP underpays compared to Austin Market to keep top talent the salary increase must be large and happen soon or others will leave as the economy improves
