Pros

HP is a large organization which offers lots of opportunities for 'can-do' people. Most work teams are highly motivated and there is a good deal of latitude given to all members. Commitment to 'quality solutions' is a big 'plus' and helps both customers and in-house teams work well together.

Cons

Little Staff Induction process is followed. Formal programs are offered and scheduled but staff are often 'cancelled' at the last moment due to 'customer priorities'.

Advice to Management

Make sure new hires are both 'scheduled' and 'attend' all 'New Hire' programs. There is nothing more de-motivating for a new starter than to be thrown into a deep pool without the prerequisite knowledge of systems and processes. I wonder how many good 'deals' have been lost this way?

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Great career growth opportunities. the Company has a good reputation in the market place which is good when you want to move out.

    Cons

    Salaries are not comparable with the industry. at times you almost feel insignificant, which is probably true at most large companies.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better compensation if you want to retain your employees. Once the market bounces back, the retention rate will inevitably drop.
