Stop being robots who merely hand down directives from upper management
Do not force inappropriate career chanages on employees
Treat employees as people, not numbers or salaries,respectfully, or expect a mass exodous when the economy recovers

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment
    Flex time
    Decent benefits (401k, health insurance, etc)
    Feel good factor about working for a big firm

    Cons

    Vague criteria defined for promotion
    Salary increases are not linear with respect to individual performance
    At time the employee tends to feel vitimized inspite of very good individual performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that your top performers are kept happy (do not try to keep every employee happy irrespective of whether they are good performers are not for the sake of PR).

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Large company, looks good on a resume. If you are a marginal employee, it will not be noticed too much.

    Cons

    Benefits are not among the best, even though they have a great bargaining chip with 300K employees, promotions are non-existant, as are raises. Performance based bonuses are a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people that work to make this company what it is. If you take care of them, they will work hard to take care of the company.
