Changes are painful

Storageworks Division (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

ProsGood pay and decent benfits. Great people to work with and very professional environment. Flexibility to work from home.

ConsGoals are set at unrealistic levels and the only feedback that I recieve from management is when I have failed to submit one of the ever changing manual reports that I have to turn in weekly. No way to truly track my performance since the system shows deals at incorrect dollar amounts and sometimes fails to post alltogether. Doing my job day to day is continually made harder by the systems that have been put in place to supposedly make everything streamlined. Making the sale is just the first step in an unbelievably complicated process for processing orders.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet realistic goals and get a handle on performance tracking. Provide an easier process for interfacing with customers and resellers. Value individual contributors.
