I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great direct managers, flex office, company car, professional colleagues. They let you self manage, and take control of your own accounts....at least in my office.

Cons

Very intense layers of reporting, forecasting, weekly, monthly, quarterly, years sales territory planning, sometimes requiring presentations to upper management. Very administratively time consuming. Some staff perfected the art of managing these these in steadying actually seeing clients and winning business.

Advice to Management

Give your sales staff the freedom to become superstars, or hang themselves. But judge them on their numbers, bottom line, not on who hands you the best reports.

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

    Pros

    Open and flexible work culture. Brand reputation.

    Cons

    Lot of lobbying at top levels. No strategic direction. Sub-standard and non-uniform salary grades. Lack of tranparency in the system.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in a more strategic governance & transprency. Allow more able people to occupy higher positions than the favored people. Be sensitive to rising cost of living and improve uppon the ridiculous salary grades and increments.
