Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Allowed telecommuting; decent benefits package; great co-workers

Cons

Too much corporate lying; could have done without the quarterly meetings...too "high-school prep rally"ish and a really ridiculous waste of valuable time

Advice to Management

Don't tell employees how great and important they are and then follow it by telling them that their benefits are being cut...especially in order to "...align with industry practices."

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Above average salary and decent benefits. Work was fun and you personally felt part of something important and relevant.

    Cons

    Was a good place to work before the downsizing began. Employee morale is now at a new low and additionally "work-at-homes" are being pulled back in the office... not too long after they were told to work from home. The company functions like a drifting ship with no rudder. Management does not know how to get back on track.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people... GOOD people. The manager should actually make the effort to help employees succeed instead of just going through the motions just to achieve their goals and objectives. A well running team that feels supported by their manager will excel and do whatever they can to make the manager appear impressive to his management chain. A manger that is too self-absorbed to care about the team will not get much dedication from the team.
