rolling full speed downhill
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONMarch 21, 2016
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.
Pros
none
Cons
long hours, top level management with no vision, wrong strategy, low quality.

Its a place where you can have your own time management, due to the flexibility and give and take culture you can have a lot of extra time to perform not only own duties but other projects, predict machine parts tear off, Uptime improvements. Its a good place to enhance your career. The company is a good place to work and the co-workers are very decent and have a close bond to each other.

A Typical Day at Work
Convergys-Level 1 and 2 IT Technical Support (Former Employee) –  Sydney, NSJune 15, 2016
A typical work day consisted of Customer related IT troubleshooting and support of HP and other computer manufacturers hardware such as DELL, MAC OS driven applications Meeting key client indicators such as Quality, Root Cause Analysis and dealing with customer based software,networking and 3rd party peripherals I have learned that most often there is always a positive innovative resolution in any task assigned to me. I had a positive and respectful working relationship with people I worked with in that we provided feedback and case resolutions consistently. The hardest part of the job was that it was difficult to advance. The most enjoyable part of the job was at the end of the day that you as an individual did your best and resolved any issues for the customer,colleges and client.
Pros
Something learned everyday and implemented to resolve IT issues.
Cons
Room for advancement was limited

Technical Consultant III (Former Employee) –  Niagara Falls, ONSeptember 9, 2015
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

It was a great place to work...
Partner Service Delivery Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONMarch 28, 2015
until HP bought Compaq. It has been a downward spiral ever since. Management isn't consistent with the 5 year plan. I don't even think they have one because it changes every quarter. They have created a cut throat environment due to Work Force Reductions. If you're not in your bosses pocket there is no hope for you.
Pros
Currently can't think of anything positive to say about HP at this time.
Cons
Raises and bonuses are close to non-existent, Saved for the bosses favourites and that doesn't mean the best worker
