Current Employee - Product Manager in London, England (UK)
Current Employee - Product Manager in London, England (UK)
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Company has very good ethical anchor. Employees are frequently reminded through mandatory and effective online training.
Senior management frequently communicate goals.
Company has very clear vision. This is to be a one stop shop. Every move the senior team make echoes this goal.

Cons

Frequency of organisational tweaks can be frustrating. Cascading changes are easy to make but their effects are felt long after managment have made the change.
Resembles a government beaurocracy owing to it's huge size, far from nimble and our competitors know it and play on this fact with clients against HP during bids.
No pay rise for many years (pay/benefit cuts instead).

Advice to Management

Senior management should not enjoy a merry go round of job reshuffles. If a senior manager does not perform (thus causing the company to underform in a particular sector) sack him/her and not people who have far less control over the direction of the business.

    Pros

    If you are an HP employee, your chances are much higher than if you were an EDS employee.

    Cons

    No loyality to employees, salary cuts, benefit reductions, layoff of targeted EDS group.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to being a service oriented business by using the EDS model. Stop filling the upper management's pockets and give back to your core workers.
