Great company to work for until the last few years
Financial Operations Project Manager (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – August 25, 2016
I worked for HP for over 30 years and found those I worked with were great professionals. However the trend is now to move positions offshore. Environment is a bit stressed now awaiting future layoffs.
Security and Safety Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 24, 2016
Benefits were good, but compensation needs improvement. Management was, at times, in disarray. We went through several CEO's while I was there and changes seem to occur each week. Not a sable place to work.
When starting - they allowed people to work from home but changed that policy, wanting people to come into the office. Yet - your neighbor doesnt work on the same account as you - so its hard to "collaborate".

I have been aware of your company reputation for some time. And I appreciate that your team’s success is due to number of factors, not least of which is hard work. This company really treats well to their employees, which is amazing. I have been lucky to be worked with this team.

You go into work, but because of it's diverse culture, you feel the time passing by fast. They offer incentives for good/hard work like free lunches, gift card, and HP points (which can be used to purchase every brand merchandise on HP's store website).
Management changes within your branch and above your rank every year or so
SharePoint Support TIERII (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – August 15, 2016
Supporting clients with issues and resolving problems with the clients is rewarding daily. I meet new clients regularly and enjoy the challenge. It is a daily routine with the team to work like a well oiled machine by sharing and resolving issues and supporting each other. It can be also a challenge at the end of the day when a issue has not been completed and to inform the client of such and to be able to satisfy client with a time frame of completion. In the morning starting new and waiting for the next challenge to come my way and to see how I will resolve this one.
Sr. Manager of Worldwide Strategic Alliances (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – August 14, 2016
I was there at the worst of times so it could only get better. However, when I was recruited they told me that there was no stock the first year, that you were in a calibration year and then they would determine how much you would get. I will not fall for that again.
Not having to kill yourself
Management team constant changeover, tough just getting things done
Server Thermal Mechanical Specialist (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 14, 2016
From the start of the day it was constantly a learning experience. We were always given obstacles to overcome for customer requirements and issues and the tools and knowledge to complete them.
The management was always on board and pushing us harder to help us get to our maximum potential. Co-workers were always helping in scenarios that needed one or more people and we always learned from each other.
Overall my experience working for HPE was one of the best experiences in my life, I learned a lot from everyone there and from the tools and software provided to me.
Reporting & Analysis Specialist (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – August 12, 2016
HP was a great place to work as they encouraged innovation, taking risks and team work. While these factors played an early part of the success of the company and its employees, since the recent mergers with Compaq, EDS and Autonomy, the direction of the company seemed only bright for the high level executives. HP seemed top have lost its way going forward in a diverse constantly changing environment. The stock price history is a reflection of where HP was and where it is today and there are more questions than answers.
Its pro college graduates today which is good for the new markets
Work-Life Balance dring the merger days were non-existent
