    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I look forward to coming in to the office because of the great team of people and all the newest cutting edge technology that you get to work on...some of which is not even on the market as of yet.

    Cons

    Training for upcoming new classes is not offered and if it is it must be done on your off time and you still have to work your regular schedule. The office environment is very casual and most time quite enjoyable. Local Team Leads in the office are great to work with and very helpful professionally as well as on a personal level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask what your folks what they would want occasionally...on paper a new idea may seem great but when put into practice it may not be the case...you need to listen to your team and see how practical and efficient the steps/changes made work for them. Also do not make it an environment where people are afraid to speak up or give input for fear they may be fired or let go just because they speak up and have suggestions.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    HP has some of the best benefits packages I've seen and their pay is top notch. Their time off policies are on-par with any organization, and employees are treated to a great deal of flexibility when the need for unscheduled time off arises. Management in my group is both professional and technically savvy, and promotion to the higher pay-grades (including management) is based on demonstrated technical merit rather than the Peter Principle. My experience with HP is that it is truly a professional organization and one I'm proud to say I worked for.

    Cons

    If you aren't in the decision making ranks of management, you may be dependent on your immediate management describing the higher-up's decisions and assigning a value to it that you can relate to. This was mostly done well, but no one likes organizational churn or goal churn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the company professional and keep building "awesome." I want to come work for you again.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunities for learning, growth, and frustration. A lot of real world experience with customers, defining what the want and how we are going to meet it.

    Cons

    A body never knows when their job might move to a different country. Living with the possibility of being notified that the job will be gone in 90 days is tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving so many projects to the lowest priced site. It involves continual cost to move that may not result in real long term savings.

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

    Pros

    Management is top notch. I've had many different managers during the course of my 15 years at this company. With one exception, all of them have managed to strike a perfect balance of hands off supervision, friendly reminders, and obstacle removal ideal to my personality.

    Cons

    Your average large company issues. Changes to infrastructure trickle down a long chain. Salary increases are hard fought.
