Approves of CEO

Pros

some of the projects have work from home option when required
the flexibility of choosing the time - depending on the project needs is good
the shut down during christmas and new year is appreciated
overall good place to work

Cons

Not much deep dive into technical areas
most of the processes are old
much of the internal projects do not have knowledge on customer aspects known

Advice to Management

good brand - but the negativity on the sacking needs to be removed. In India security to the job is much more important than the brand.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There are lots of capable coleagues, which can share useful experience and advice.
    Good mentoring and coaching programmes.
    Opportunity to work with culturally diverse teams. Projects are often shared between many units, usually geographically decentrilized, including other companies.
    Challenging and motivating workplace environment.

    Cons

    Global executive policy is draconian on employees (senior management up to CEO)
    Salary freezes
    I fear for the future of the company, it seems it became a tool for capitilizing on acquisitions, and product research and development seems not to be so prioritary as it once were.

    Advice to Management

    Focus back on the core purposes of the company, and product development. Don't sacrifice HP's core values for growth.
