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 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?
