HP. A great brand, but the worst company I've ever worked for. Looking to leave

Hewlett-Packard – “HP. A great brand, but the worst company I've ever worked for. Looking to leave”

Hewlett-Packard Managing Consultant in Warrington, North West England, England (United Kingdom): (Current Employee)
Pros
I have no 'good' reasons anymore to give anyone why they should work for HP.
Cons
Constant cost-cutting, including paycuts, to maximise profits so major shareholders, including board can see their stock portfolio rise. No reward culture. No pay rises. Promotion means nothing other than making yourself a target. Poor communication. No work-life balance. Senior Management consistently fail to deliver on their 'People Promise'. Nothing more than a body shop for human resources. Quality no longer counts or is measured. Reduction of cost is God. There seriously is no reason to work for HP other than the current economic climate makes it difficult to move jobs. It will not stop me trying though.
Advice to Senior Management
Be warned HP Senior Management. Morale is the worst I have ever seen it. Constant cost-cutting for short-term gains will mean you will lose your best people. If not immediately, as soon as the market recovers. You will only have yourself to blame long-term.

They were the worst of companies, they were the best of companies.

Hewlett Packard and Best Buy have managed to get themselves on at least two “top companies” lists at the same time. The problem is, the lists rate diametrically opposed qualities.

Both companies were “good” enough in 2009 to get on the Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies list. And yet both were also “bad” enough to make it into the Consumerist’s 2010 Worst Company in America tournament.

HP was also number one on Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s (CR) 100 Best Corporate Citizens List, an even more widely watched industry measure.

Cutting GHG emissions while ripping you off

The Ethisphere and CR use a number of sophisticated benchmarks, like greenhouse gas emissions reductions and fair global labor practices, to compile their lists of companies. As Triple Pundit reported last week, it is an open secret that companies tailor their ethical initiatives to the CR list to improve their ranking.

The Consumerist deals more with day-to-day behavior of companies in dealing with their customers. It cited HP for selling (along with Compaq) laptop batteries with a penchant for catching fire. Best Buy was nailed for its “optimization” service, which Consumerist called “a big stupid annoying waste of money.”

These two worlds — one, the realm of fair trade practices and complicated greenhouse gas accounting, the other that of basic customer service — can seem mutually exclusive. But they are actually closely tied to each other.
