I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

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

Cons

Goals 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Legacy of HP way. Smart, caring, team-oriented people. Reasonable salary. Satisfying work. Global reach. Brand recognition on resume. Location in Northwest.

    Cons

    Layoffs. Erroding total compensation (benefits cut, vacation hours trimmed, company performance dependent variable 401k matching). Way too much work. Upper management's lack of care for people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategy and stick to it - way too many starts and stops. We've walked away from incredibly attractive business opportunities, then decided years later to go back again, after losing out on being in a position to drive the market.
