    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Very open environment. Management communicates well with individual employees. Great work-life balance: very flexible. Easy to move around to other jobs internally (this was especially true years ago).

    Cons

    Has become very good at laying off. No clear commitment to funding development. Downsizing and cutting bennies are very regular occurrences lately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure what to say--no complaints with low and medium level management. It's a tumultuous market, and printer product areas are facing huge pressure.

    ESSN AMS Commercial Sales-US Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Conway, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Conway, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Hewlett-Packard in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone & personal interviews that made a lot of promises and made it seem like this job would lead to a full career. TO be honest it was a lot of hot air, you don't have to know anything about HP just position yourself as a person who is willing to make phone calls and sell server storage and networking to businesses.
