Was a good place to work, then not so much
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Pontiac, MI – June 7, 2016
HP was a good place to work, with global teams working wherever they were most effective. I worked from a home office for over 7 years. Then management decided - against industry research and facts - that we would be more effective exclusively in the office. I was forced to fire team members that did not have nearby offices. then the company split, wand within 9 months, sold off half of the remaining piece.
My direct team, some of whom I have worked with for over a decade, are skilled, friendly, innovative people. We gather for dinners, volunteer aid and advice - both HP related and personal -, and are good friends.
Highly intelligent coworkers.
Mandatory office presence. Executives destroying the company. Low morale.
