Pros

Technology and administrative matters are very well organized, like a well oiled machinery.

Cons

Technical experience is not frequently valued and requires from the employee to work hard in order to take advantage of insights.

    Pros

    HP provides the training and time to come into your own and the support to maintain good performance. There's an opportunity to move about in the company and experience multiple positions across a 10 year span.

    Cons

    In sales, great performance is not commensurate with great commission. If you're an average performer, you can reliably hit your OTE +/- 5%. However, above OTE, they find a way to limit your commissions. If they don't do it in year, they'll get you on your next year's quota. In addition, they love to micro-manage, and frequently come up with ad-hoc reports that will need to be submitted. This takes away from your time spent working on sales.

    Advice to Management

    Richly reward success. Don't punish over-achievers. That will only incent your best to seek work elsewwhere. Middle managers: push back on the senior executives that come up with more reporting for sales to do if they year is going poorly. That only exacerbates the downward spiral.


  2. "Great company, needs better execution after multiple management transitions"
