    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people. Good environment. Lot's of opportunity to learn and move around and try new things. There's plenty to do.

    Cons

    In such a big company it's very difficult to shine or stand out. The rewards get trimmed down more and more every year. Just when you thought they ran out of ways to cheap-out on rewarding employees, they come up with some new and insulting "rewards system" which is just a new way to give less to employees. Bonuses have reduced to a trickle over the years along with raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your people. Stop getting greedier and craftier in inventing ways to not reward employees. Giving me "points" and merit badges (yes, this is how they actually reward us) doesn't help me pay my bills.

    Pros

    Great people
    Great work environment, we have private cubes!
    Interesting innovative jobs, but only around current product lines

    Cons

    Salaries are frozen
    Promotions are stagnating
    Management lacks vision of the future and no engineering experience.
    No opportunity to innovate on other areas, only in current product lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow engineers to guide the technology innovations and infrastructure needed to take hp to the place it used to be.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    great colleagues; good work-life balance; opportunities to learn new skills

    Cons

    benefits are mediocre; raises are non-existent; constant layoffs; senior management doesn't provide the resources to allow employees to follow through on plans

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to the people "in the trenches" because they know more than what you allow them to share with you. Stop with the incessant layoffs (WFRs); all it does is lower morale -- especially for the people who are left.

    Pros

    Great work environment. The technology is what I would call state of the art. There are multiple ways communicating within the network and there is training for employees.

    Cons

    Better to be a permanent than to be employed through a staffing agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
