    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Operations Manager
    Former Employee - Operations Manager
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - competitive atmosphere amongst employees (true for the Malaysia location)
    - comfortable work environment, facilities-wise
    - "brand name" recognition on your resume

    Cons

    - company has suffered overall from poor leadership over the years
    - constant directives to managers to cut costs by headcount reduction, non-renewal of employee contracts, hiring freezes every 2 quarters
    - cost-cutting extends to bureaucratic approval process for hiring approval, resulting in position approval taking between 3-6 months to replace a employee who has resigned
    - very limited bonus/increment structure
    - managers often forced to grade employee performance according to distribution curve rather than based on actual employee performance ( contrary to official company policy)
    - hub-based organizational structure results in accounts within HP pinching employees from each other
    - different benefits for employees on different accounts doing the same role, resulting in disparity and employee unhappiness
    - no work-life balance, especially for management level-staff
    - Very restrictive Standards of Business Conduct (SoBC) prevents you from recommending colleagues on social media sites such as LinkedIn
    - progression through the ranks in terms of job responsibility/promotion does not go hand in hand with salary increase, which is often delayed by 6 months to a year.

    Advice to Management

    - Senior leadership team needs to understand that employees have become disillusioned over the years with CEO changes (Leo, Mark Hurd)
    - Focus on building core business rather than acquiring business HP has no experience in ( like the Palm fiasco)
    - Understand that salary ranges have increased even in markets like India, Malaysia
    - Reduce dependency on short term moves to make the books look good, like delaying Overtime payments to the staff and hiring freezes
    - Ensure that key performers are rewarded (training, advancement opportunity) rather than trying to keep them in one place so they can keep delivering for you. People inevitably grow bored and leave.
