    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The current executive team is hyper positive, super intelligent and disciplined enough to methodically plan for the future - the next 75 years of HP. Many years of friendships and great leadership.

    Cons

    the employee travel policy - non executives cannot travel business class, even if they travel from US to India/China 5-6 times per year. travel policy should be equitable for all employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    strive to be the best place to work!

    Pros

    They believe in the work life balance concept

    Cons

    You have to work in the office 5 days a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think there would be better morale if the company went back to work from home one day a week.
