Pros

HP has changed but still is a good place to work at, the people make the difference and are key

Cons

HP has unfortunately also morphed into a company that thinks that the employees are interchangeable and no assets, training and caring is second nature these days

Advice to Management

Look into what makes the business valuable and once you found it is the people - care about them and results will easily come

    Pros

    The people! There are numerous opportunities to learn at HP. There are also many products and technologies to choose. HP has great leadership programs. HP is typically supportive of you taking on new responsibilities, paying for training, and big on teamwork.

    Cons

    Much harder to move around within the company now. Less and less innovation, HP now relies heavily on outsourcing. The prime positions for advancement are shrinking. Instead a trend seems to be employees taking demotions just to keep their jobs. Due to the outsourcing, many roles are becoming generalist (not an especially good thing for one's career). Executive compensation remains strong while employee pay, benefits, and moral are shrinking.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the voice of the workforce results and actually hold your leadership team accountable for them. Your workforce is telling you where you are succeeding and failing.

    "Offshoring, Increasing workload, Decreasing Compensation: Miserable"

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work, but since Mark joined it has turned into a living nightmare. The costcutting is so severe that it is very difficult to do a good job. Hurd's version of HP hires untrained, unskilled workers in Asia for pennies, while US employees (at least those who haven't been laid off) pick up the slack.

    Cons

    Employee lack of morale. Heard to cheer up my team when all I can offer them is cuts in benefits and pay, increasing workload, and colleagues in Asia with very limited skills.

    Advice to Management

    HP will fail when all of the talent in "high cost geographies" leaves for greener pastures, leaving the penny-pinching bohemoth with low-skilled employees who will also leave as soon as they find better pay elsewhere (the norm in India and China).
