Changes in company direction each year, in 3 years I had 4 different managers. If the numbers are up life is great, but as soon as sales go down it is very possible that you could lose your job. Pay and benefits are great, but top down management strategy created a lot of tension in all areas of the business.
Pros The company has a great legacy that opens the door for opportunities. HPE owns the IP for some industry-leading technology that could shape how customers do IT. Cons Constant cost-cutting driven staff reductions have eliminated thought leadership while destroying morale and collaboration. However, duplication of roles exist. It is common to see several people doing the same work that they view is different from each other. Communication channels across organizations are poor. Incentive structure outside of sales is not competitive. Despite a strong product portfolio sales driven decision making.
There was a lot of tumult while I worked at HPE - sell-offs of large stakes of the company and an underperforming sector. There was also constant shake-up at higher levels of the organization.
Flexible hours, decent pay

As Data Center Hardware Specialist my days were full, but I worked directly with customers and was able to manage my day as needed. Management was supportive and the team members work closely with each other.
Late nights and Weekends
I worked at HP before they merged with CSC to form DXC Technologies but while I was at HP our revenues fell dramatically year over year after a series of awful acquisitions and complete lack of strategy by executive team. I made it through 90,000 lay-offs and curiously HP didn't even offer stock options to those of us who stuck around even though HP used most of their net profit to buy back shares and pay options. It's a typical corporate culture where the executives are rewarded for making idiotic acquisitions (EDS, Compaq, Autonomy, Palm) but the rank and file get punished with low pay and lay offs.
This probably applies to just about every job now, but HPE expects its engineers to work 60-70 hours a week. That would be okay with me if the pay was on par; HPE pays their engineers 10k less on average in my area.
Lots of work and job security.
Lower than average pay.
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
HPE was a great place to work. Unfortunately their merge strategy with CSC and rename company to DXC Technology just showed the Léo Apotheker strategy to split company 6 years ago was not wrong, but it was a place that I had a great pleasure to work for 8 years.
Solid company, good benefits
When I started with the company they were customer focused and now the customer is not the focus. The company is top heavy in middle management and the rank and files workers are let go to pay for the salaries.
Management via popular numbers that often have nothing to do with the customer or PNL
Unfortunately I wish I had better things to say about HP because I remember what a great culture they had in the 80s and 90s. But, with all the terrible acquisitions it ended up a mish mash of declining products with teams that never gelled. The EDS merger was a bad move, we got killed by the Indian Tier 1 firms on pricing and we never could compete with the large Management Consulting firms like EY and KPMG. The EDS managers never really felt they were part of HP. Probably good that this group is merging with CSC but beware, CSC has finished their re-organizations and there will be A LOT of layoffs coming from the HP side. Meg Whitman has said there are still 30,000 layoffs coming - maybe more as their revenues slide. Probably best to wait until summer of 2017 after merger to see how they are doing.
Manage migration of 1700 users from Citrix Virtual Desktop environment to VMware Horizon View VDI Technology. The team consists of 5 FTE Systems Engineers and two business analysts.
