I worked at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Great name recognition - the company was a great starting point. There were a lot of people that had spent their entire working life there.

Cons

Sometimes it was too big - too many layers of management at times made it tedious to get some projects completed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

So far things are too big to change quickly without possibly 'breaking' a lot of longstanding ingrained policies and procedures.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    A Fortune500 company with great opportunities to get exposure to many different industries and learn about many different business processes, IT solutions and service delivery options.

    Cons

    People are mostly over worked and under recognized. The company does not invest sufficiently on training. Too much emphasis on self-help which does not yield adequate results both for the individual and the comany.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actions speak louder than words. Use less rhetorics and invest more in training and compensation. Human beings are not disposable items.

    Pros

    Some good people, but not always in the senior management ranks.

    Cons

    Most people look out for their own career at the expense of others and this is driven by the year end reviews - as they drive comp and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Did they really "integrate" EDS people in to the HP Way!
