Ok, has become too big

Solutions Architect (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC (US)

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat talent, great people to work with. Depending on the team and the technology, it can be a fun place to work.

ConsToo much middle management, to big of a company, unable to react to the market, underpaid. Unable to decide what it wants to focus on. Annual reviews needs improvement and little to no guidance on how to position oneself for success. Little to no work life balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees, practice what you preach. Provide a real career path to your employees without it being in Management. There is too much of a buddy system, if you not part of it the path of success is limited. Evaluated purely based on numbers and not work ethic.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
