"Not a place where you will be promoted from within."
"I am a long timer. Pay is not adjusted for increased responsibilities or overtime worked. Work harder, longer hours, and do all the extras yet are at a lower level than men doing and capable of much less. No yearly raises or bonuses. Women tend to get support roles and roles that won't qualify them for bonuses. Rarely do women get the development work. Non-paid maternity leave was not an option for me either pregnancy despite being a very large company. I do think women are judged harshly for taking maternity leave."
"Compensation is not consistent across roles. Not necessarily based on gender. External hires generally make more than the an individual who has been in the job."
"It is a boys club. Don't expect to see a lot of women at the VP level or above. Within some marketing groups finding a female director is challenging. Outsiders tend to think having a woman at the helm means great opportunities for women at HP, but it is not true. Meg's senior staff is predominantly male (and I'm assuming there is a woman or two that were recently added). Worse, after five years here, I've seen a lot of really smart, talented women forced out or marginalized in the constant reorganizations."
"The Enterprise Services organization is very male dominated. There is not much diversity in the leadership and it's hard to find women role models. Women often leave the company due to lack of advancement. Very few women advance beyond director roles. Also there are very few women in sales roles and they still wonder why sales are down."
