HP Inc.

Business Program Manager, Product

January 1970

That HP Inc is headed in the right direction and I am grateful for the flexibility and benefits, but the stress is high and hard to manage. We do a lot of stop and start with projects due to budgets shifting. The expectation is that the work should still get done but without the money to pay for it.

    I've been lucky with my managers and flexibility for kids, doctor's appointments but not everyone has that here.

    I had a C-Section so got an extra two weeks paid.

    Maybe. it's hard to recommend HP to other women when I watch the imbalance of our management who work crazy hours. They respect our home life but not their own - sets a bad example and doesn't make management look appealing.

There is a single standard image of a leader at 1AF - quirky, entrepreneurial white male. Women rarely become promoted and men are nearly always promoted faster within peer cadres.

    Amazon has always been very flexible (in my experience) with time needed off of work.

    Maybe. Amazon was great for my first 4 years in middle management. However, breaking through the glass ceiling into upper management has been challenging to say the least.

    I availed the leave of adoption after adopting my daughter. I am sure that IBM is one of the very few companies to provide adoption leave- especially about 14 years back

Its male dominated. And even though its had Women CEO, there isn't much more gender diversity. Mediocre males remain in places of leadership with female subordinates that grind out the work.

The company can still be doing so much more for women... You won't encounter any blatant sexism but the culture is still very much all about 'the guys' at the top and being part of each department's boy's club.

    The company added paternity leave rights and extended maternity leave last year, though only in the U.S.

    Maybe. The company offers a lot of great experience opportunities but is still very much old-school corporate America when it comes to women (and diversity in general). It's trying to change its culture and has a few interesting initiatives for women, but in my opinion it's still far from being enough.
