Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The benefits are great. The work can be interesting. Opportunities to travel and diversify work on occasion.

Cons

Disjointed Structure, Poor Incentives, Detached Management, No Culture. Management shows, at best, a tolerance for employees. Desire to increase sales no matter how unreasonable the client's demands.

Advice to Management

Reward people, communicate, and listen. Don't hide in your office or behind your computer. Give employees incentives to increase revenue and stop micromanaging.
