Big Data Value Creation Leader (Current Employee) – Vancouver, WA – May 23, 2016
The days of ink and printing are behind us. HP Inc's future rests primarily with 3D (where most of the funding is going) and Graphics. Ink is, for all intent and purposes, dying.
Let me say this first: I love working at HP. People are smart, extremely hardworking and helpful. The issue is that the company used to think that the market would come to any product they built. Turning that around is proving a challenge.
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Remote – May 18, 2016
During my time with HP I learned to always expect the unexpected. A typical day included, assisting customers with system issues, setting up new systems, and adding devices to the network. These were just a few of the skills learned while at HP. Management always encouraged us to be confident and precise with our work. I firmly embraced that concept and also included what I refer to as the 3 P's. Patient, Prompt, and Polite. These five elements added to my success at HP and to my personal life. There was no "hard part" to the job. I take great pride in my critical thinking skills and excepted every challenge head on.
Since the company split, management roller coaster has followed. Most of the team are hard working and honorable individuals, but the turnover is taking its toll. The corporate decision to hire college level individuals during 2012-2015 is really contributing to the dilution of knowledge and experience to complete any task efficiently or effectively. Too many people have left the company for internal systems to falter and become unstable.
Too much corporate restructuring and lack of knowledge
Process & Program Manager (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – May 16, 2016
HP was a great place or me to show my talents and move forward. Management seemed to know my expertise and showcase it so it was very rewarding. I moved around to different departments, each one learning more, developing my knowledge and challenging me . I enjoyed every bit of my time there.
Individuals must know their limits and act accordingly
HP is basically on downhill path due to their focus on short term loss prevention and long term losing talent.
Lead Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – May 15, 2016
Most of the time if you are in the know of the management coterie, you will get an opportunity to advance or else you are relegated to tasks which will not help you advance. Politics between teams plays a big role. Such a large number of temp H1 holders, without much of ability are inserted in the company that, including for some lower to middle management positions, that their inability to appreciate and retain talent, has made working at HP a joke. Quite often these temp workers tend to bring in their relatives and friends in the company through political means, irrespective of their abilities, and hence the employees who really can contribute get pushed out. This company's culture has been completed turned upside down, by people who have very little talent and feed lies to upper management. so the upper management is pretty much has no real idea as to what is happening in the company.
Deskside Support (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 12, 2016
There is no typical work day, I work at the site's IT Walk Up Help desk that services over 1500 end users, but for the most part their issues are quickly resolved and at the end of each day we're successful at keeping our clients happy and satisfied.
Management is the best, my boss is one of the best I've worked for and I have worked for some unapproachable individuals.
My co-workers couldn't be any better and we are of all different nationalities and cultures but only see one goal equally for succeeding in our work and in our family lives.
Hardest part of the job is getting here safely! Houston drivers can be complete idiots!
To conclude this I enjoy all parts of my job, there is always something different to go with the routine stuff.
Casual dress code, flexible work schedule, cafeteria with many choices, gym, walking trails, clubs, etc
Compass Field Subject Matter Expert (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – May 10, 2016
The great part of working for HP Enterprise are the people, flexible work schedules, casual atmosphere. The challenge is the ongoing workforce reductions which has reduced morale leaving employee's feeling discouraged. There is no loyalty to employee's. You can work hard, be a committed and valuable employee with year after year exceptional reviews and be gone with a blink of an eye....very sad.
