Pros

Friendly Staff, great products, and a aging workforce

Cons

The Management, Upper Management, Corruption, company doesn't believe in raises, you are limited to the raise you get if you switch to a higher paying job, only 20% max raise when doing so. It was normal for me to work 80+ hour weeks and they would still ask for more but the managers would work 20 hour weeks and were hard to get a hold of.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard part-time

    Pros

    Employees are paid a monthly salary

    Cons

    Long hours with low pay.
    Limited promotions even after putting in ridiculous hours
    High attrition due to many abandoning this sinking ship
    Excess workload for remaining employees
    Lots of cost cutting originally started by Mark Hurd leading to cut in innovation and non investment in employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training employees. Promote instead of giving excuses.

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

    Pros

    Good people who work hard and care.

    Cons

    Outsourcing, management bonus focus and cost cutting seems to drive all decisions, rather than taking care of employees and encouraging creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Too highly paid CEO's and upper management is what ruined HP. Board of Directors need to overhaul the whole top level structure. Too many CEO's doing a bad job and walking away with millions. Why not give the actual workers incentive rewards to do a good job and make the company profitable?
