    Pros

    Rewarding customer relationships and relationships with industry experts. Surrounded by innovative, competitive technology and training for the latest industry trends.

    Cons

    Be open to travel and relocation if you are seek advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be a dictator, but rather a servant leader that uplifts and elevates the talent you are managing, so that others might reciprocate this to the peer talent and potentially additionally managed talent.

    Pros

    The individual contributors at HP are by far some of the best in the industry. Compensation is on par with the average, though difficult to catapult your salary. It was suggested that if you leave and come back, then you have the opportunity to really make significantly more.

    Cons

    Senior leadership has gone through some flux and one of the major concerns I saw was senior leadership would be brought in from other companies and they would bring their team with them. Problem with that is, causes way too much friction with current process and procedures and normally new blood never made any significant impact.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You'll always hear, we need to get back to the "HP Way" and HP does. The value the company brought to the employees and the value the employees brought to the company were at it's highest levels and HP really was where you wanted to be. Now, not really sure.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the pros are willingness to help with personal growth, promotions, time-off policies, benefits, culture within the career development area as well as support from peers. That is always a nice thing to have in an office - collaboration is key!

    Cons

    I would have to say there have been limited perks for trips, etc. given that some of my peers get to travel and take incentive trips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we can sweeten up compensation packages and develop a management track, that would be ideal. Otherwise, I am happy working at HP.

    Pros

    Many solutions to choose from for your customer. Great support from engineering teams.

    Cons

    adoption of latest and greatest features can be very slow, due to thorough testing. Competition will test at customer sites, so we had a few features that took years to make very clean. While its a good thing, for a company this large, new features were slow to market. Commissions are lower when there are so many layers of upper management.
