Sadly layoffs are normal; not fair to cut the rank and file because of very poor financial decisions made by senior leadership and BOD... also the practice of taking US jobs oversees is plain WRONG...
Women in this company are awesome to work with, however, I still don't see enough at the very top. A few in that group would help things tremendously.
I have been part of this company for over 3 years and see a fair amount of woman in mid-level management positions. Promotions are based on friendships and location, not necessarily qualifications.
I've worked here for nearly 4 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. While there are women in management roles, it is difficult to move up in pay and grade. As a passionate employee I am told to not be so sensitive and its just a job, but I am going nowhere. There are a lot of lies that come down from the top. and I think truth is supreme, i can take the truth but lies are your downfall.
I have worked for this company for 16 years. In general I have had a good experience, have had great managers and like the people. Work life balance has changed and no longer part of the HP Culture. The days of being able to work at home is gone. This was a huge benefit to many employees and as long as you demonstrated self discipline, continued to meet all expectations it was a benefit that most employee's appreciated. There is still a lot of flexibility and overall it is a good place to work. It is great for young people coming out of college and offers many opportunities for career advancement.
I have worked for this company for almost 30 years. Over the years the company has vastly improved in fair treatment for women.
It's not the company for everyone, you have to want to contribute and put yourself out there to try different things, make a difference, some folks like status quo
Very male-centric. you can look at org charts and see women in HR or similar roles at upper levels. Used to be much better than this. There is no mentoring or special programs to help U.S. based employees get a leg up, unless you are with the right manager, as most are two busy feathering their own nest and cracking the whip.
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.
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.
