    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, regular salary, decent work load.
    free tea & coffee :)

    Cons

    Very hard to grow up from your position. You are employed becuase you are cheap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don´t let your great employees leave. You can do better than that! You waist 1 year on training somebody and now you want let them go for not giving them a 5% raise so they can be happy? You have great workers and very competitive ones. Make them happy and be the best company.

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

    Pros

    Access to a lot of training, promotions available, great people

    Cons

    Office Culture - Drop the 'Back in the Office' - it's hurting performance and isn't bringing people closer together

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make reorgs without extensive evaluation of impact to performance, drop the 'back in the office' pursuit (many are looking for jobs elsewhere, due to the way this pursuit has been handled - it's hurting performance, given the global nature of the company)

    Pros

    Good company, Flexible hours, Great employees, new leadership is solid with Meg and Dion. Hopefully more positive changes to come

    Cons

    New hire training non existent, changes are not vetted out by front end employees, ask questions, what is needed, not needed for process improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    seek feedback from the users prior to making change.

    I think the split (HP Enterprise and HP Incorporated) is a good move.

    Pros

    Good people and management truly cares about employees and customers. Salary and commission is low compared to other similar companies. Benefits and perks are better than average.

    Cons

    Technology is not keeping up with market in any space. Processes take up too much time on internal approval to get a customer a proposal. Middle management is too focused on quarterly results and not pipeline development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seperation will allow for focused development - keep investing in R & D and training.
