I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great talent, great people to work with. Depending on the team and the technology, it can be a fun place to work.

Cons

Too much middle management, to big of a company, unable to react to the market, underpaid. Unable to decide what it wants to focus on. Annual reviews needs improvement and little to no guidance on how to position oneself for success. Little to no work life balance.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, practice what you preach. Provide a real career path to your employees without it being in Management. There is too much of a buddy system, if you not part of it the path of success is limited. Evaluated purely based on numbers and not work ethic.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    HP manager respect their team members and support them. The team members support across functions and give their best. HP is a respected company, and backs up its products.

    Cons

    Accounting uses older technologies. The is little to no growth opportunities visible. Much of the institutional memory has been lost in down sizing.

    Advice to Management

    Build more from within. Prove you respect the contributors that made HP great. Communicate vision to the entire teams.


  2. "Great folks to work with, but HP Enterprise Services is still reeling from past management fumbling"

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

    Pros

    Flexible Work Environment, Outstanding individuals and peers, Competitive salary & benefit packages. Top performers are generally rewarded for performance.

    Cons

    Services organization has lost its way and is still reeling under HP senior leadership fumbling. HP senior leadership is not committed to services industry which is why HP has not been able to pull in major wins. Short-sighted senior leadership actions over past four years (inclusive of EDS senior executives) have destroyed the Enterprise Services organization. The continued indiscriminate layoffs within the Services Division is highly visible to market & existing customers; resulting in HP "Enterprise Services" losing consumer confidence!

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision! Either commit to Services and invest strategically to create a single Services organization that can be leveraged to deliver outstanding IT Services. . . . or get out of the Services business! Customers will not buy from a confused vendor. . .
