Customer Service Analyst (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 7 February 2018
Hewlett Packard Enterprise which has now been sold was formerly EDS. HP started a mass lay off starting in 2016. Employees were on pins and needles not knowing who was going to be laid off next. That made for a very stressful work environment ! A lot of great people were out a job after many years of service.

a good company. Good projects Good work ethics the company has an excellent service DNA. the changes from HP to HPE to DXC have robbed it of some of its sheen but lets see how it continues in the coming times.
SAP Basis Administrator L1 – Transport Team (Former Employee) – National Capital Region – 13 October 2017
Typical day involves you staring and processing red bullet requests in your computer. Company is on shifting schedule and it is hard to balance life outside work bcause you have to work nights and sometimes on weekends and holidays
Sales Support Executive (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 September 2017
Exactly what you'd expect at a Fortune 50 company: Highly pressured senior management doing their best against formidable odds. The company culture was surprisingly humane and supportive compared to others I have worked in, and have no fault with any of my managers.
I was given considerable latitude in the execution of my duties so long as the deliverables met internal standards and all of the normal HR policies were adhered to, along with the considerable regulatory / compliance rules that needed to be maintained to ensure corporate health and good standing.
It goes without saying that a proper cadence needed to be maintained without any oversight.
It was a good 5 year run, but at the end, when the spin off / downsizing happened to create the DXC brand, employees were reduced to a number on a spreadsheet. As a result, the layoffs made little to no sense, with a lot of very top talent that was producing billable results let go. The appearance is that the new DXC has given up on Canada, evidenced by the strategic path started two years ago to not make any investment in country, and instead to form a US centric delivery organization coupled with executive presence only in Toronto, and very little of that.
Latitude in performing responsibilities
Cons: Poor market strategies from senior management
Solution Architect (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 13 August 2017
It used to be a great place to work. Not anymore. The quality of innovation has gone down. Management only cares about meeting their sales targets foregoing quality and customer satisfaction in the process.
Intersegment Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Ville Sainte Laurent, QC – 7 July 2017
Good work life balance, a good workplace culture. They care about the people most of the time. But there is so much people that sometimes it is difficult to have control on everything, the HR department is not really efficient.
IT Analyst (Current Employee) – Kanata, ON – 29 June 2017
Hewlett-Packard is a well-known and respected company. It is a great place to develop professionally and learn the ins-and-outs of the IT world.
It is rewarding to work for a reputed establishment. Although the pay rate and benefits could be a lot better, the work environment is a great compromise for those two facts. It has been the most enjoyable job that I had so far. Working here requires a lot of critical thinking and organisation. Its challenging pace of work certainly made me a undeniable candidate for future opportunities.
Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 April 2017
The people and the work are enjoyable. However, the decisions that manager's make are only in their best interests and not the employees. Constantly changing and shifting strategies make for uncertainty
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 April 2017
many changes during my tenure at this company, many shifts in management direction and many changes in management personnel resulted in very confusing corporate message. Constant change was a challenge and constant change in corporate strategy resulted in many frustrated employees.
