Current Employee - Pre-Sales Consultant in Bracknell, England (UK)

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good company to work for, good technology. The acquiisition of EDS made a lot of sense for HP and probably stabilised the EDS balance sheet. Strong brand, strong global footprint.

Cons

Large company, easy to get lost, overlooked. Arbitrary redundancy approach, no consideration of skills or experience. Pay freezes and reductions, poor bonus structures unless you are in the elite "sales" pool, regardless of how much you contributed to the deal.

Advice to Management

Be reasonable in rewards between execs and employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    More supportive of a good work/life balance than many places.

    Cons

    Cost cutting often seems to be the sole reason for the companies existence. Impact on customers and employees is a secondary concern now. Many decisions seem to be driven by horizontal organizations (IT, real estate), rather than by the businesses that are affected.

    Advice to Management

    Re-establish HP as a desirable place to work before everyone leaves
