    Pros

    The job provides a decent lifestyle and interesting challenging work. Awesome people that hold the teams together.

    Cons

    I don't have anything particularly new to say compared to the present reviews. I can see truth in most of the issues raise, but wonder if it's really that different to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to see what magic HP can bring. I am very hopeful that Meg Whitman sees the challenge of transforming the business from ones that driven by sales to one that driven by customer (and hopefully employee) satisfaction.

    Pros

    Diverse range of products, and wide variety of customers.
    Lots of travelling, offers a good lifestyle for people who manage their time.
    People seem to be compensated well.

    Cons

    Lots of travelling.
    A lot of the skills you need have to be picked up on the spot, and quite a bit of improvisation is needed to complete the task.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure training for the necessary work is given before deploying projects, this will allow the project to be completed to higher standards.

    Pros

    Great opportunities, steep learning curve, excellent senior management, dynamic environment and the people are great - some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    This is not the place for someone passive, if you don't get a response to an email, just escalate. Don't sit around thinking it is not your responsibility just because you didn't hear back. This is actually a pro as I dislike reactive behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Communicating the rules more openly would help new employees adjust more easily.

    Pros

    Hugely challenging workin environement. Broad exposure to new technologies. Excellent team ethos and dynamic working environment. Opportunties are varied and performance related. Excellent identification of an individuals skills and strengths. Hard work and dedication are rewarded. Strong competent management who quickly identify what is neccessary.

    Cons

    Core emphasis on sales and targets, placing enginering under strain. Acceptance that hours beyond 40+ a week are standard with no obvious financial reward; no clearly defined bonus structure. Dynamic working environment, wi'th 'upstart' approach is effective provided communication is clear and well maintained. Otherwise, lack of process can result in work being duplicated and poor quality results. Probably the result of rapid growth and huge success.

    Advice to Management

    Implement basic processes and ensure products and services are sold clearly with regards to their capabailities. 'Yes' cluture places engineering under unsustainable pressure.

    Pros

    Great technology products & people. Plenty of training available. Competitive salary 401 and ESPP.

    Cons

    Commissions are hard to track. Health and welfare benefits are decent but very expensive. Sometimes big company red tape is a barrier.

    Pros

    Employee Engagement, Industry level comp & benefits, Lot of growth opportunities within the company, Diversity and inclusion council actively working to bring in more diversity and bringing more women back to work.

    Cons

    Software needs more focus and need to move away from he Services oriented culture. Engineering and Non-Engineering viz. Operations & Services need to co locate so that it brings the Engineering closer to the customer needs and interests

    Advice to Management

    With HP split in the process now, both the companies should bring back innovation and R & D to the fore & focus so that the companies are able to maintain the leadership status in the market with more new products and services.
