No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very well paid for amount/difficulty level of work, very forgiving sales environment --- at other sales companies, you are fired if you do not meet 100% of quota. At HP, they lower your quota and tell you to "try again!"

Cons

Constantly changing C-level staff, boring product lines, "kick you when you're down" sales structure. Management turns a blind eye and a deaf ear to any concerns/criticisms/questions that you may have, so don't bother asking.

Advice to Management

Be more transparent, provide a more coherent (and longer lasting) vision, and hire internally.

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

    Pros

    Work is satisfying, teams work well together

    Cons

    Senior leadership isn't sure what to do with us! Direction changes all the time. Difficult to move to different business units. Compensation on the low side.

    Advice to Management

    Look at successful companies. Decide on a direction and stick with it! Take a critical look at board members, are they really working in the best interests of the company?

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

    Pros

    Great work life balance. It can be a lot of work but you can shift around your schedule. If you are a top performer, and still low on the pay scale, they have started giving off-cycle pay raises.

    Cons

    You need to be a top performer to get the good rewards.
    Business is slowing down (but HP is still huge) so it's hard to tell how the rewards will be in the future.
