Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great people working toward a common goal; insane levels of communication from top management all the way down - real focus on transparency and making sure that employees understand the direction, the messages and what is going on with the business.

Cons

We are an intensely diverse work group with a huge percentage of "teleworkers". The working from home is great but requires organization, drive and self discipline to "get it done" every day, without anyone looking over your sholder.

Advice to Management

Figure out how to get teams together annually for face-to-face meetings

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

    Pros

    - Money was good
    - Smart people
    - Could work virtual

    Cons

    - Not paying attention to customer (from the top)
    - too much bureaucracy - tough to get anything done
    - No strategic vision - lack of innovation and overall pretty cold-hearted

    Advice to Management

    Get someone in at a high level that can truly make a difference. Force the board to weed out people who continue to make stupid moves at the top level.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The position composed of 12-hour shifts for 3 days a week (M-W or Th-Sa), and alternate Sundays. Atmosphere was very laid back, and fairly safe.

    Cons

    No holidays aside from Thanksgiving and Christmas. Non-paid vacation days.

    Advice to Management

    Please get line managers LEAN or Six-Sigma training so they can better implement workers in the line.
