- HEWLETT PACKARD ENTERPRISE19.Nov 2018
there's no culture to speak of, just a bland corporate homogeneity
Support from management
The management in this company is a joke, I had one decent manager out 7.
it felt like the whole company was all individual contributors, competing against each other and stabbing each other in the back to get a good ranking with their stacked ranking system
there were hardly any women working there and the ones that were weren't treated the same as the majority male co-workers
Attitude towards older colleagues
older workers are pushed out through "work force reductions"
they stopped paying for any education years ago. They might pay for specialized training for very specific things but no degree programs
Overall compensation for your work
before I got laid off I didn't have a raise for 8 years
Office / Work Environment
cubicle world, no amenities
they talked about it at least but only when it affected the bottom line
I frequently worked on call, sometimes putting in 20+ hours on the weekends and was expected to work my regular 40 hours also. Since I was salaried I didn't get paid anything extra - no extra pay for being on call.
they'll ditch you as soon as the market winds blow in the opposite direction
the work was boring. They buy other companies and try to make the other companies products work with their name on it. They stopped innovating long ago.
Inclusive / Diverse
just a bunch of white guys except for the H1B visa hires from India
Suggestions for improvement
- train the managers. hire better managers. pay people more to be on call.
What I like about the company
the pay was ok
What I dislike about the company
the whole culture of buying other companies for their intellectual property instead of developing something new and innovative
