Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Work/Life balance is good
Can move to different jobs when they are available.
Possible opportunities when market improves. Will be an explosion of turnover.

Cons

The compensation is absolutely abysmal
Career growth is non-existent
If you are one of the few who get promoted in a job, there is no salary bump.
Really no hope for a future with HP unless pay is unimportant to you.
CEO states that we are going to more of a bonus pay, but are changing bonus rules to pay less.
Pay for performance is non-existent.
You will do the same job as someone else but be paid 40% less if you haven't been here a long time.
Not a place for young and lower paid workers because you will move up at a snails pace regardless of the work you do.

Advice to Management

Not that they would listen but... Align the salaries of CEO/upper management with the rest of the company. It is ridiculous that we have a CEO receive a 42 million performance bonus while the rest of the company has gotten a pay cut with no bonus. Many of these people are already underpaid in relation to the rest of the industry. It doesn't matter... All in the name of cutting costs

    Pros

    Keep your job while the economy is still in poor shape.

    Cons

    They care about the bottom-line and Wall Street, not about their employees. Lay-offs, pay-cuts and forced vacation in December. I am forced to take half of my vacation in December.

    Advice to Management

    I predict that once the economy picks up, many talented employees will look for greener pastures.

    Pros

    Large company, solid name, reputable experience, and a dynamic industry.....HP can certain offer a breadth of opportunities for experience in various functions.

    Cons

    You are a number, with no real value. Company is profitable but looks for profit growth at the expense of employees' compensation and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    The employees are assets, and if HP strives to make it to the Fortune best 100 places to work (like Google or Amgen, productivity will improve.
