Approves of CEO

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of growth happening. Layoffs are in the papers, but the company is in a transition period for the better. Meg is a great leader.

Cons

Extremely hard to get normal things done like procurement, staffing, and using off the shelf software. The company is so big that the checks and balances, even though are meant to protect, cause more harm than good. I've seen very bright people give up and leave because of it.

Advice to Management

Continue to make the right changes for the future.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Supportive first & second-level leadership

    Cons

    Numerous internal systems, which do not sync to each other, or with business calendars. Little collaboration among various business units. Hostile work environment. Work hours are consistently above 40 hours/week. Little or no standards in how we do business.

    Advice to Management

    Take a personal interest in the internal problems - which spans all orgs. Portfolio, sales, delivery, legal, finance. Stop selling deals we can't support. Foster work environments that are collaborative - not combative. Working "remotely" should not equate to "Available 24x7". Lastly, at the very least, stop the backwards business procedures.
