I worked at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere and flexible working schedule

Cons

Right now it is struggling and you never know when the next layoff is since they've been doing so many. Morale is really low but depending on which group you are in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Next time you do 10% pay cut you should apply that to your bonuses also... 10% pay company-wide is fine but when your base salary is 250k and you make millions in bonuses that is not calculated in the pay cuts is unfair

    A typical large company that fails to differentiate from others like it.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Large company with wide opportunities in multiple technologies; multitude of customers within Fortune 500; stability during challenging economic times; great benefits.

    Cons

    Poor communications within the division and especially across geographies and other business units; motivated employees leave often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit and retain top talent, greatly improve communications up and down as well as horizontally.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    If you work you butt off, you get rewarded.

    Cons

    But --expect to have no life. Expect people to tell you-- you have no life. Expect people to say "you need to get a life." Do I work to meet the outragesou timelines--only if you don't want to get yelled at by management who is so intimidated that they can speak up. Cut costs---all the way. Bring your pens, paper, napkins, coffee. HP was a company that valued creativity---now it values cost cutting. Folks--Hurd isn't going anywhere soon.....so get used to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously....do they even listen to their employee opinion survey. Here is your advice--how can the Executive team work together not compete against each other?
