I worked at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Great name recognition - the company was a great starting point. There were a lot of people that had spent their entire working life there.

Cons

Sometimes it was too big - too many layers of management at times made it tedious to get some projects completed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

So far things are too big to change quickly without possibly 'breaking' a lot of longstanding ingrained policies and procedures.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Good conscientious individual performers who have built relationships and trust with clients -- that has brought business to EDS and now HP.

    Cons

    The Narcissic managers at the top are used to running a widgit company. Some of the decisions that are manadated down need to be in a Dilbert cartoon. US employees do not have a future with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Running a clients IT shop is more than providing a body that can perform a technical function. The only relationships that last are built on trust.. There is no trust here.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    HP had a great culture and still has a wide portfolio of products. There are lots of great people working at HP. The company has loads of potential.

    Cons

    Engineers are not valued at all at HP. Pay-for-performance does not apply to individual contributors. The CEO has a single skill (cutting costs) and a single goal (maximizing his compensation).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT is an internal service organization; IT should not be driving the strategy of the company. Wake up and realize that you are running a technology company!
