Current Employee - Sales Representative in New York, NY

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

Pros

HP has a long legacy of products and services
Plenty of training to be taken to help you with your Job

Cons

Constant pressure from senior management
You will always be threatened with your Job starting as soon as 2 months
Businesses are very siloed and the units do not work together to win business
No one can tell you where to go for help. In most cases you have to call between 5-7 people

Advice to Management

The best way to sum this up is a website was created so people could submit trouble areas to the management team. It was suppose to remain open for 30 days after 5 days and 83,000 submissions the site was shut down.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Manager is great. Department wants to push you towards new roles to further expand your toolkit. Open door policy. Casual and relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Getting promoted to a new position is considered a horizontal move, so little pay is added. Management sends too many emails, from CEO to EVPs to VPs to Directors, its hard to get a clear vision of who's doing the steering.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the red tape. Don't cut our benefits, cut your luxuries.


  2. "Getting better; renewed hope."

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity. Despite economic and competitive headwinds, company has momentum, and new leadership. Hope for better, in an improving world-wide economy, new leadership.

    Cons

    Last 12 years of 17 with company, plenty of dysfunctional and misguided management and strategies. It's been tough, but chose to pass on early retirement in favor of getting back to the HP Way. Hope my bet pays off!

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the roots of the company, one that engineers worldwide admire: Shuck commodity products that only generate slim profit through cost reductions. Get back to niche engineering, where innovation creates new, lucrative, unexploited markets.
