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

Pros

Great marketing - cool message. Great Sales reps. Much better after the HP sale. Benefits are good.

Cons

over 90% turnover for a reason. You can sell, but management will take the deal away from you so you don't get the commission. Pricing is not available for sales people on 90% of the products and to get pricing, you have to give up 75% of your commission. Lot's of travel, metrics - 5 face to face a week and 1 proposal. No org chart, limited access to engineers, no white papers. Some of the software works. Run away! Don't stop here.

    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.
