    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The leadership and management I have had the opportunity to work with at Hewlett-Packard have been second to none. They are eager to empower their employees and are truly seeking their customers benefits equally along side the success of the company.

    Cons

    The workforce is very dispersed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing to take care of and empower your employees

    Pros

    HP is a great place to work as they provide flexible work hours and has great benefits

    Cons

    Company is not where it needs to be in regards to new product innovation and profit margins. As a result, they are continuing to reduce their workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Feeling is senior management is receiving all the benefits (salary, stocks, bonuses) at the expense of the individual contributors

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great projects as a HP Intern. You can really learn a lot about applying your academics here.
    Be proactive and you will flourish. Superb mentors and supportive bosses especially HP Lifers who know the company inside -out.

    Cons

    A big machine. Hopefully the HP split will resolve the bureaucracy and the processes to move into a more agile organization .
    Your parent ' Google or Facebook' firm. Needs to revitalize its product lines and move from the commodity status

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance employee expectations with strategic vision. It appears as if every CEO is looking at HP as a testing ground and launching pad for future careers.
    Solidity at top is the need of the hour.

    Pros

    The environment is super friendly and almost everyone is willing to help. You can speak to the CEO down to the cleaning people without feeling intimidated. It has amazing opportunities if you know where to look.

    Cons

    There is always going to be workplace politics, and unfortunately there is that here.
