Access Management Consultant - FRB (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – February 1, 2018
Started working when HP was EDS in 2000 Loved the family type caring culture when EDS When bought by HP, that culture changed. liked working in a busy field learned alot of the day to day workings of a large IT company
There was no work to be done, but they kept hiring a new 100 people every week for a tax break. I was the only skilled IT professional & wound up doing any work that was ever available while working with felons that had absolutely no interest in the jobs they were hired for. There was no work to be done 90% of the time & we stood there losing our minds. HP does not hire people. They only hire through a select list of contractors. There are very few actual employees. One man had been there for 10 years & was still denied his request to be an employee & called it quits. You have to walk in & out of metal detectors to use the restroom. It was a 5 month prison sentence, but at least they feed their captives in prison.
You get to spend 8 hours a day conversing with ex-convicts.
Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Murray Hill, NJ – February 17, 2018
I loved working for HP moved up three different positions from a contractor to a direct employee. The only downfall is getting W.F.R.(work force reduction). Great company to work for if they went back to the old ways and cared about the employees and products
Was a great place to work when I started, but by the time I left it was average.
R&D Chemist, Hardware Design Engineer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 15, 2018
Even though I call the culture average by the time I left, I still liked working there because the quality of the people that I worked with was still way above average and I'm sure it still is. Upper management was expecting a lot more with losses in benefits and compensation. Raises were very small and rare in my estimation toward the end of my tenure. Not just for me, but in general for the average engineer, who are mostly well above average. The great thing about the company is that they work in multi-discipline teams, i.e. writing system, electrical, mechanical, chemical disciplines. We had fun in our work.
I loved the people, usually quite happy with the lower level managers I worked with day to day.
Workloads increasing, compensation barely improving, felt less appreciated near the end

Americas Sales Annuity Program Manager (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – February 13, 2018
I loved working with HP for almost 11 years. The past few years were filled with many changes and job insecurity as layoffs occurred every week somewhere. I made a lot of great contacts and learned so much about project/program management.
Field Service Engineer 3D printers (Current Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – February 11, 2018
Everything is done reactively. No processes or best practices in place for dealing with issues. Three different, often conflicting, layers of management. Typical work day consists of service related cases opened for support with minimal training on the equipment to help on technical issues. Many have little to no experience in additive manufacturing/printing. The workplace culture differs between divisions and products. All are treated as start ups and some seem to reinvent the wheel instead of studying and Implementing best practice processes from successful groups.
Constantly being second guessed and micro managed.
