"Turnarounds are difficult"

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

Pros

There are lots of bright people at HP. People are working hard to make changes for the long term growth of the company, but it can be difficult.

Cons

My experience is that when leadership positions become available, HP fills those positions from external candidates. I also was expected to work early mornings and late nights as part of a global team.

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

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn new things are growing

    Cons

    Constant threat of job cuts, sending work offshore, revoking work-from-home

    Advice to Management

    As long as job cuts are "necessary", the CEO should not receive any pay. Racing IBM to the bottom in cutting jobs and forcing people to work in unpleasant locations won't make HP great. Maintaining work-life balance, work-from-home, training, doing good work for the customer without threat of job loss, those will help. Working in an office versus working from home is a pay cut and leads to lower efficiency from more distractions. "Culture" is the given reason, but the word is mischosen.
