Good company with above-average benefits
Financial Analyst III (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 27 November 2017
I worked at Hewlett Packard Enterprise/Hewlett-Packard Company for over 30 years. Overall, I think it is a good company and I value my time there. I learned a great deal, and, for most of my career, had challenging and mostly satisfying work with great team members and management. In recent years, there was a lot less flexibility with regard to work locations which greatly limited advancement and new opportunities if you happened to already be in a location that was not a hub office for finance activities. With shrinking profit margins and increased competition, there was also the looming threat of work reduction initiatives which did finally catch up with me and my department members when our work was moved to a low-cost, offshore location. That is not a unique situation in today's work environment, however.
good benefits and compensation
lack of advancement opportunities in many locations unless you are able to re-locate
