I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Flexibility, respect i am given by my boss, the autonomy to manage and set goals for my people, work life balance is tough at the minute but i own it and am supported. Great colleagues and willingness from people to do the right thing

Cons

Very top down approach, people are more worried about how things look than the substance of what they do.
Some of the "old" spirit of the HP way is gone - but we live in a new world today.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

need to get back to some of the core values of the organisation - don't spin things if they are bad its better to give it straight - people can take it!

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Legendary company, legendary founders, and if you get to work with the original blue employees - you actually get a glimpse of the original HP.

    Cons

    It's now more about shareholder value than employees. Employees are getting burned out at the increased workload (from layoffs), psychological impact of losing colleages (from layoffs), years of pay freeze, and lack of promotional opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop paying lip service to VoW results.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Hewlett-Packard allows employees to take risks and to be pioneers in their field. They feel it is better to try and fail and learn rather than not try at all.

    Cons

    The company is rather large so being recognized for your achievements is sometimes quite a challenge. YOu tend to be lost in the mix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to always listen to everyone in the company. The listening should not stop at any one level but should be valued from not just the top down but from the bottom up.
