Approves of CEO

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great people, Flexibility to move around and learn different business. The company is going through transformation which provides a lot of opportunity to try and learn new things.

Cons

The company is too big which makes it slow and sometimes bureaucratic. The bonus part of the compensation is not very high. The stock performance has been below S&P 500 so the return on ESPP and Stock compensation is low

Advice to Management

Invest in R&D. Bring new product and innovation into the market.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great reputation and excellent enterprise server products.

    Cons

    Some ridiculously bad managers exist. Six month performance reviews are not being done. Some internal transfers are 'bait & switch'. Employee applies to open requisition one level higher, is accepted, and transferred. After transfer, realizes it was completed on a completely different job requisition as a lateral transfer with no promotion. Some employees have seen 1% pay increase in over 3 years. Some managers have 75 to 100 direct reports and don't initiate contact for months.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cheerleading. Identify and reward the performing employees, before they leave. HP still has heartburn & indigestion with EDS. The cultural & procedural differences between the traditional HP side and the EDS side are extreme; sell EDS.


  2. "Good workplace with emphasis on personal career and welfare"
