Company Culture

Th;e company culture is changing as HPE reinvents itself. There has always been good collaboration and a laid back atmosphere, but after years of reducing the work force and constant change, the employees are getting worn down. No one is immune from WFR and the workload just increases with each reduction.

Support from management

In my groups they did the best they could to make it a great place to work.

Teamwork

In the groups I worked with everyone worked well together. Each position took responsibility for it's piece of the work and everyone was willing to help someone new figure out what they needed to do next.

Freedom to work independently

Some positions lend themselves to this more than others.

Internal Communication

Communication seems to be good for direct employees, but contractors are often forgotten in the communication chain.

Gender Equality

I had a lot more female supervisors than male. I didn't notice anyone not trusting or supporting women in the workforce at any position

Attitude towards older colleagues

Individuals did not treat older employees worse, but once you had over 20-25 years in with the company, it sure seemed like you were more likely to be cut in WFR's.

Career Development

I've seen less opportunity within the company in the last few years than in the past.

Overall compensation for your work

raises are few and far between even when you get a higher position

Office / Work Environment

the move to cubes and an open work environment doesn't foster collaboration, it makes it harder to concentrate on your work. Some peoples voices carry even when they are trying to talk low and with so many conference calls, people are on the phone a lot. Returning to a more liberal work from home policy helps a lot for those whose positions allow them to work from home.

Work-Life Balance

It is as good as you make it. Some perm employees worked a tremendous number of hours, some not so much. Sure everyone needs to pitch in at crunch time, but it shouldn't happen all the time.

Job Security

It is pretty good until you've been there too many years.

Handicapped Accessibility

At the Houston Campus, everything is so far apart. Walking from the garage to my work space took 6 minutes at a brisk pace. Handicap spots are available, but aren't much closer. If your handicap is walking distances, you have issues. They will set chairs where you can stop along the way and I believe the security desk has a wheel chair if it is needed. Other handicaps are accommodated as necessary as far as I am aware.

Suggestions for improvement

  • If you must continue to change and reduce your workforce, why not implement the changes and then phase out the people you don't need instead of cutting people, when you change and everyone is left scrambling?

What I like about the company

innovation, constantly creating new and updated products

What I dislike about the company

lack of care for long term employees. I will indicate I recommend the company but it is just for certain situations. It can be a great place to learn and the employees are truly wonderful to work with.
