No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Flexibility in location of work.
Benefits are good, specially flexible vacation schedule and sick days
Colleagues and managers have generally good faith and excellent work ethics

Cons

Not much in terms of overall career growth. I think its due to HPs stagnant market share..
Lags Strategy and direction on new initiatives and existing offerings
Lower salaries and no raises over past couple of years

Advice to Management

Consider yourself as not a leader. Start small and concentrate on quality of initiatives and offerings.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people - competence of rank and file is high, great diversity (of thought and ethnogratphics and demographics), tremendous opportunities to do just about any job within the company, culture of trust and respect (still, despite erosion of these values in recent years)

    Cons

    Lack of long-term investments or metrics that track/enable longer-term commitments to future business opportunities. Accordingly strategic decision-making is not up to par. Executive leadership actions pressure mid-level management to prioritize short-term results rather than supporting/enabling execution of strategic imperatives.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate the course of change that Meg Whitman has started. Empower your employees to reinvigorate the innovation that they are capable of and that is the legacy of this company.


  2. "With the size and resources available HP has the potential to be more innovative and sucessful."
