Former Employee - Project Manager
Former Employee - Project Manager
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Legendary company, legendary founders, and if you get to work with the original blue employees - you actually get a glimpse of the original HP.

Cons

It's now more about shareholder value than employees. Employees are getting burned out at the increased workload (from layoffs), psychological impact of losing colleages (from layoffs), years of pay freeze, and lack of promotional opportunities.

Advice to Management

Stop paying lip service to VoW results.
