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

    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

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
