Pros

Hewlett Packard Company is a decent place to work, with good benefits and fair compensation. One benefit is the company is generally very supportive of employees and their personal needs. If you need to take a leave or some time off, they are supportive.

Cons

Being a very very large company, it is very easy to feel like a cog in a wheel at HP. Ther seems to still be a lot of dead eight and way too much bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

Try to create small teams that can bond together and feel like they can achieve things they put their collective minds to.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment; able to work from home at my own discretion.
    Compensation is amongst the leaders, not the highest but not the lowest.
    Many career opportunities
    Great people

    Cons

    Management driven primarily on the numbers, and less on the people. This is a little shortsighted as people are your #1 asset, and without their motivations the numbers will fall.
    Reward and recognition programs needs overhauled. There is little motivation for employees outside of sales to give extra effort when there are no raises or rewards.

    Advice to Management

    Give more back to the people, and deliver on the people promise. Ranting about numbers all day does nothing for company morale.

    Pros

    the employees are the only thing good about HP... highly talented.. but soon all leaving.

    Cons

    I don't see how senior/executive management can sleep at night based on what they are doing to this company and it's employees. Such total disconnection from reality.

    Advice to Management

    all of these horrible things you're reading about yourselves and what you've done to this company... they're ALL TRUE!!! go away and let someone run this company that won't destroy it!
