Pros

Advantages of a large company such as good benefits and enough resources to support the work. Good policy allowing for moving to another position within the company.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy. Not enough communication. Too much emphasis on profitability and growth. Too much time spent tracking time. Salary freezes and downsizing when things aren't going well.

    Pros

    Lots of good opportunities, ability to change roles and grow if you are self-directed and motivated. Opportunities to telecommute. Committed and talented employees.

    Cons

    Continual reorganization, lots of red tape, very little autonomy for managers. Inability for people to get raises and promotions. Current difficult financial situation has caused low morale.

    Advice to Management

    trust breeds trust. Invest in people to raise morale. Not everyone who telecommutes is productive.

  2. Mis-management in HP Software - good old boys network

    Pros

    good individual people who mean well

    Cons

    HP Software has some of the worst management I have seen. It is true that D Managers hire D players. Cumbersome processes. Top talent not appreciated. It is all about who you know and if you are in the bay area. Some of the worst decisions that I have seen management make (ivory tower and out of touch with reality).

    Advice to Management

    Replace most of the top level management (below the Software CEO). Treat your top talent well so that they can become company advocates and ambassadors. if things do not change HP will continue to attract bad management and spiral to oblivion
