Current Employee - Market Research Manager in Chennai
Current Employee - Market Research Manager in Chennai

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great work/personal life balance
Interesting projects to work on and great internal stakeholders in the US

Cons

No budget for travel to meet clients/customers/team on a regular basis
Senior management is mostly from Genpact and infusing that cost cutting culture into HP.
Not much career growth can be expected unless someone senior quits

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start properly managing seats and empower employees to work from home.
In doing so, save costs, and also ensure that those funds can be made available for the team rather than spending money on silly games/opening new offices.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hardware and software giant. So for en enthusiastic learner opportunities are unlimited here.
    Employee friendly environment.
    No restriction of chat, facebook or anything. ;-)

    Cons

    Leadership crisis. The board has fired three CEOs in a row already starting from Carly fiorina, Mark Hurd and Leo Apothekar.
    Board's strategies are not working. The last acquisition of UK based autonomy corporation was over valued and HP has to write off US$ 6Billion. Ultimately everything starting from HP share price to employee appraisal take a beating due to disasters like this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know this is almost impossible: Find some one like Steve Jobs and appoint as CEO
