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!

    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.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Exciting technologies across the group to address customer needs. You always get to work on virtual teams to bring a solution to market.

    Cons

    Cost pressure/reductions is the primary driver within the company. Creativity is pushed back on if it requires quick funding. There is very little opportunity for career advancement. If you are an individual contibutor, you will never get a chance at advancing up as a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have smart people that do good jobs. Reducing compensation, passing more benefits cost back to an employee is not the way to motivate the ideal behavior.
