    Lack of coordination and no reward for hard work or loyalty.

    Pros

    Middle management is appreciative and supportive. Relations with coworkers was very good. Amount of time off was generous and other benefits were at least competitive.

    Cons

    Autonomy is run as a disconnected set of silos. Arbitrary decisions about hiring are handed down from on high including laying off longstanding employees with exemplary records. By the way, the company policy is zero severance after almost twenty years of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower product innovation and do not hand out decisions unilaterally as you probably do not have enough information to make a decision. Hope that HP realizes that major changes shoud be made at top levels of technical management.

    Pros

    It has some good technologies and smart peoples. It also pays good after merger with other small companies.

    Cons

    benefits are not good. the company is pretty stringent on everything, from pc, laptop and other stuff. Low benefit matches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please offer good benefit packages, good 401k matches. Put more energy on research and development, not only on sales.
