Disapproves of CEO

Pros

It's a job. It pays just below industry average. At the end of the day you get to go home, although you keep working. Some smart people left. Mostly nice people to work with.

Cons

Forget "Invent", innovation is actively discouraged. If you are over 50, there's a target painted on your back. If you don't have 20 years with HP "classic", you are dogmeat. If you are part of an acquired company, count on HP management driving your former company into the ground, and decimation of the employees. Terrible morale! Rewards go up exponentially with closeness to CEO level. No rewards below director level.

Advice to Management

Start realizing that a technology company has to treat it's technical talent better. Stop discriminating against senior employees under th guise of cost cutting.

    Pros

    Good name company to work for and my co-workers are great, hard-working people.

    Cons

    With a global team, there are lots of late night and early morning meetings.
    The company loves to have meetings - at times it seems we are meeting to plan a meeting.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get back to basics and respect the people that work in the trenches. People work hard with long hours with only a 95% paycheck to show for it. while there are freezes on most travel and purchasing office supplies, what sacrifices is the leadership making?

    Pros

    lots of VERY talented/intelligent individuals, flexible work schedule, ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Constant threat of layoffs. Absolutely NO focus on customers. Desperate mgmt., No career development (but lots of lip service to it), Encouraged to work from home, but will not subsidize phones or internet connections. Pay cuts. Reductions in benefits. No raises. No bonus. No stock options. Yet upper mgmt get's millions in bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like we're stupid. You hired us, and told us we are the best and brightest, yet you think we can't see through the smoke and mirrors.
