Pros

Hewlett-Packard allows employees to take risks and to be pioneers in their field. They feel it is better to try and fail and learn rather than not try at all.

Cons

The company is rather large so being recognized for your achievements is sometimes quite a challenge. YOu tend to be lost in the mix.

Advice to Management

It is important to always listen to everyone in the company. The listening should not stop at any one level but should be valued from not just the top down but from the bottom up.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    For the most part, good, honest, competent people work at HP, although this is changing. The skill set required to retain jobs now have more to do with politics than real competence.

    Cons

    Management lacks integrity, top to bottom. It is not possible to manage with integrity with the systems, such as forced distribution ranking, in place. Those that have stepped up to question such practices are gone. The trust between management and typical employees, and the morale, are so low that I don't see how the company can recover. This issue manifests in more ways than can be listed here, but suffice it to say that the typical work day at HP sucks. Attrition is becoming a real problem. They are now trying to rehire as contractors former long term employees they previously laid off (fired) and offering them much smaller salaries with no benefits.
    This company is in a downward spiral. HP once had great trust between employees and management, and HP had specific management practices that supported and built on that. HP now only manages for cost, but expects to retain the benefits of former management practices. It doesn't work.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't even know where to start. Maybe you should get some unbiased advice from outside of the company, though I doubt it would be heard. (no pun intended)

    Pros

    Large company with opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    You never know who and when you will get laid off. There is NO job stability no matter who you are or how politically tied in you are. Lots of expertise is walking out the door and going to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what the words "employee care" means.
