Project Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 21, 2016
Pros: none
Cons: long hours, top level management with no vision, wrong strategy, low quality.
stay away and don't touch with 10 feet pole. HP is in process of laying off all experienced workers and moving all work offshore with major impact on enterprise customers. Cutting corners at every opportunity. Middle management jumping ships in a bid to leave before being fired.

Job Security is cause for concern

Pros: Opportunites in a veriety of SAP environments

HPE continues to be very focused on "Best"-Shoring. Shipping jobs offshore causes employee morale to deteriorate. Opportunity for working in a variety of technical environments is a big plus.

My department is not supported in HP
Senior Business Services Consultant (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONDecember 9, 2015
I belong to a small insurance software company that was bought by EDS which in turn was bought by HP. My unit did not receive support from HP as it was not its mainstream business so it was left to crumble. In the end, the software that the unit developed and sold to quite a number of insurance companies were left with HP's India unit.

worked for 15 years
Technical Consultant III (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, ONSeptember 9, 2015
Pros: Good benefits, decent pay
Cons: High work load, 60 hrs plus, work hours 24x7, 7 days a week
Like any company, it really depends on the team, manager and customer account.
In the years I worked there I had the best times with great people and had tough customers and tough teams to work with.

In general an OK company to work for but being as large as they have become the ONLY thing that matters in the end is their bottom line. Years of service, dedication, climbing through the ranks etc... do not matter. If they need to cut expenses and can replace you cheaper. Anyone can be released

Used to be a great company
SAP Technology Consultant (Former Employee), HP CANADAAugust 26, 2015
Pros: work from hom
Cons: Long working hours if working for US implementation projects
Over the years, after lots of layoffs, now workload has increased and no additional compensation paid for additional work.
But work from home makes it a great place to work, but if you are overloaded then it works against you as you have no fixed hours of work.
