    Pros

    The people in the trenches running the day to day operations are professional, skilled, and helpful.

    Cons

    The management teams are more focused on consolidating power and building fiefdoms then they are building the company.

    Advice to Management

    Protect you assets and the people who got the company to where it is today. Don't WFR your experienced staff for a number on on Power Point Slide.

    I have been working at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of people to mingle with and formulate great bonds with!

    Cons

    If you are a person of color, or LGBTQ be prepared to be lost in a sea of non-diversity and passed up for promotions year after year. The guy that used to get everyone excited about diversity on campus left and it's a very strange place now.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to look beyond... what happened to the HPWay?

    I worked at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, Easy but fulfilling work, Day-Evening-Overnight shifts available, Great location, Free Parking garages,
     Various online training/courses available freely, A few great Supervisors, Open Door policy, Free food for overtime days,
    Free coffee, Full time hours.

    Cons

    Often hostile work environment due to angry supervisors, All shifts were constantly pitted against each other for product output
     and caused resentment and complete division amongst shifts instead of a healthy team environment, Lots of lay offs,
     Floor workers were not respected by Office employees, Does not often hire internally and most supervisors know nothing about
    the manufacturing process and often derailed production due to their own misinformation or unwillingness to listen to more
     seasoned employees, Too many pointless meetings, Majority of contract and direct labourers did not care enough to work a minimal
    amount of work and constantly put down the company instead of trying to change the situation and give constructive criticism
     to management but unfortunately management probably wouldn't listen anyway, Employees would break tools, steal, and damage
     products or HP property just because, Blatant favouritism by management, Threats and warnings to fire employees,
    Unfair treatment by supervisors due to untrue rumours or assumptions, Training was basically non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors need to focus more on everyone being a team instead of setting up competition with threats of being fired or moving
     areas because of lesser numbers than other lines or shifts. Supervisors need to be more fair and considerate to all employees
     and keep emotions in check and especially stand up for the employees underneath them instead of throwing them under the bus to
    save themselves. Management needs to learn more about products, processes, and areas they're over so they can be better informed
    when making changes and communicating with their employees. Management needs to understand that proper training is crucial to
     solid work output and is a far better than giving minimal training. Focus less on how pretty the buildings look and more on
     functionality and practicality.
