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

Pros

Happy, collaborative, friendly, family experience. Teams work together to accomplish goals and objectives. Information is shared easily and readily. There is a lot of information available.

Cons

It is a very large organization. Matrix and functional organization at worldwide, regional and local level sometimes make it difficult to locate the right individual for the right task.

Advice to Management

Simplify systems, processes and reports so everyone in the organization can be more easily aligned

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    HP still enjoys a great reputation in the marketplace and that reputation precedes you working with customers. Because of this, they are able to recruit well, and many of the lower tier employees are impressive and great to work with.

    Cons

    Churn and ambiguity will destroy this company. They constantly change strategy, pay structure, account assignments, and managers as these folks claw and step on others to move up the ladder, or laterally once they receive the inside scoop that their area is designated for change or reductions. Customers are openly expressing frustration with the constant change.

    The ambiguity results from the "emperor has no clothes syndrome of management". What is being reported up through the ranks is all numbers based. The numbers are real, however the actual work activity generating these numbers is not represented and as a result the executives are being fed misinformation about what activities are necessary to emphasize to keep high revenue customers. If kept happy, the revenue would even increase from these customers.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in productivity tools, invest in compensation tools, and integrate the various processes that you have segmented into layers of complex bureaucracy and return the commercial inside sales role into the sales support position it ultimately is for your larger customers. Stop playing the shell game of moving "non-revenue generating" costs to other departments and contingents to make the department books look good. You are still spending money and showing a higher percentage of leveraged employees is bogus, pure and simple. Give these large customers a single point of contact that can create a fantastic customer experience and you will grow revenue so much you will not have be so concerned with costs. Somebody a couple notches down from the top needs to have the stones to explain that there is a cost to supporting these customers.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only good thing was the pay rate, even though the best jobs are given to 20 year olds with no experience but alot of pull in HR Mexico

    Cons

    If people are not on Facebook all day, they are texting thier friends on thier Smartphones

    Advice to Management

    Send your Jobs to countries like Panama where people have morals and are not baised against others.
    Also fire everyone on HR from the Manager to the Supervisors..they are probable selling your positions to the highest bidder.
