HPQ Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

The Hewlett-Packard Company, commonly shortened to Hewlett–Packard or HP, ( HEW-lit PAK-ərd), was an American multinational information technology company headquartered in Palo Alto, California, that developed and provided a wide variety of hardware components as well as software and related services to consumers, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises, including customers in the government, health and education sectors. The company was founded in a one-car garage in Palo Alto, California by Bill Hewlett and David Packard in 1939, and initially produced a line of electronic test and measurement equipment. The HP Garage at 367 Addison Avenue is now designated an official California Historical Landmark, and is marked with a plaque calling it the "Birthplace of 'Silicon Valley'".

Ian mentioned, "I am a business owner and My HP Spectre laptop was sent off for repair - Battery fault had caused the Charging circuit to blow a fuse with a burning smell coming from the Power connector in the laptop. Sent it off expecting repair only to find the battery had been changed without being tested properly. Got it back, it still didn't charge or work off battery power. Sent in back on their 3-7 day service warranty. Useless. Tomorrow will be the 8th day and I still don't know when I'm getting the laptop back because of a "parts Shortage" they say. Well as a small business owner I rely on the laptop to work - I cannot do that work because they have failed their service level agreement. Very poor - AVOID HP if you want reliability - product - service or repair."


Tell the world why HPQ sucks!

Electrical R & D Technician VI (Former Employee) says

"Labeled essential employee thru covid-19. Then come July laid off out of the blue. Cons: No alligence to their employees"

Engineer (Current Employee) says

"HPE does regular layoffs as a regular part of doing business. No job security. The next layoff at this company permeates everything going on there. The management does not like to talk about the layoffs. They pretend that layoffs do not even exist. Cons: Lots and lots of layoffs"

Virtualization Systems Software Engineer, Converged Systems (Current Employee) says

"Not a good company to work for, no training no work life balance and they lay off more people then they hire."

Provider field service representative (Former Employee) says

"This company is terrible. One year they cut employees paychecks by 5% because the company wasn’t doing so well. Inadequate management and no room for growth. I understand that situation may be different at other locations but not at this one."

Lab Technician (Former Employee) says

"Interesting place to work but cut throat in terms of employees always being expendable and since majority of employees are contract workers and at any time your services are no longer needed."

Support Engineer (Former Employee) says

"highly do not like it.. supervisors lie, job advancement is crazy"

Project Manager (Former Employee) says

"They expect their employees to be available all the time on call even after their working hours, Late Nights, weekends or even if you are on leave you should be available on call. If you have any activity late night then too they would expect you to be on time at office irrespective of you working after working hours. Their is no Job security as soon as the project is over they will kick you out inconsiderate of your dedication towards your work late nights. Cons: Long hours, Late night works"

Strategic Account Executive (Current Employee) says

"The manager does not coach in N Cal, instead looks for faults and tends to support the males in the company and criticize the female employees, no longer have an open door policy and HR is for the manager and not an employee"

Senior Solutions Architect - Technology Consulting Services (Former Employee) says

"Toxic. Wouldn't recommend. If you like constant layoffs. Constant strategy change, which never works, constant cost cutting to employee packages. This is the place for you."

Vice President (Current Employee) says

"Uncollaborative political environment. No work life balance. No inclusion. Too much bureaucracy. If not a yes man, you are done. No strategy. All fluff."

Technical Support (Former Employee) says

"All the senior management of the company wants is making savings. They do not care about their employees or their customers as long as the management at the top get their own bonuses and the shares are at a good price. We were able to see how much the top management was getting when they were selling their shares since it is a public company. Every year you could see how much they were making at the time of the bonuses while we were told there was no pay increase or bonuses for us and we couldn't even recruit so the teams were constantly under staffed."

Help Desk Technical Support (Former Employee) says

"Run for your life, they are absolutely god awful. I would never work there ever again. It was the worst. They don't care about their employees at all and will let the customer speak to them anyway they please."

Senior Financial Business Analyst, Global Labor Reporting SME (Former Employee) says

"There were too many managers trying to push their own agenda. The overall benefit to the company was not considered. Promotion was by the good old boy network."

Inside Sales Account Manager (Current Employee) says

"HPE bring you in and sell you high dreams and then lay you off. They promise a lot of things but do not believe a word. Managers have that favorites and they make it hard to promote. When you try and apply for a role they pretty much waste your time by having you to go through the steps and that someone have already been choosing for the role."

Global Services Segment Manager (Former Employee) says

"Poor Management, Poor Pay, Poor Benefits, No Pay Increases, Educational Benefits Program but never awarded. Lack of training, poor travel conditions and long trips. Cons: Management was terrible"

Services Information Developer (Current Employee) says

"There is not any support from Account Management and the work culture is like being in elementary school. The hardest part of the job is that the Vendor dictates the schedule of projects and therefore code reviews are not done. The Company values off shore staff more than what is in the United States even though off shore takes '3' or more staff and more time to complete the work. Cons: Lack of promise and lack of promotion opportunity"

Sr. Storage Architect (Consultant) says

"Came in with grand promises of advancement and carreer, immediately got sold to DXC. No promotions, no raises, no bonuses, just a nowhere job going nowhere. Cons: Job, Hours, Pay, Management, Constant Threat of Layoffs, Just about Everything else."

Field Engineer (Former Employee) says

"Company is running itself into the ground with bad management decisions. Subbed out services to a third party company (Unisys), very bad decision. Lost a lot of key persons because of this."

Executive Assistant (Former Employee) says

"A lot of politics up to the top"

Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) says

"Extremely poor salary and benefits and even worse management. Cons: arrogant and non-competent managers, extremely low salary and benefits"
