A typical large company... Lots of opportunities and lots of bureaucracy.

Pros

Good opportunities for career growth. In my experience, managers allow and encourage job changes into new areas. There is a Technical Career Path that provides a path for technical people to move up without having to move into management. Lately they've been encouraging mentoring and different ways to share information across divisions.

Cons

HP is a huge company and is full of annoying bureaucracies. If bureaucracy drives you nuts then don't work for a huge company. If the work you do and the people you work with are more important then HP is a fine place to work and there are lots of opportunities in a large company.

    Pros

    For the most part, I work with some pretty bright employees. Good benefits. Big community supporter.

    Cons

    Never ending reorganizations make for inefficiencies. Patchwork of systems--likely resulting from numerous mergers and acquisitions over the years--seem most surprising for an IT company!

    Advice to Management

    Don't give away tens of millions of dollars to top management for NOT working!

    Pros

    HP is fine with working from home, but depends on your manger? Brand Name

    Cons

    There are seldom any salary hikes. Once a while you receive some bonus..but too little. Performance reviews are really bad and career growth is not talked much. you only grow when you change projects??

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and retain good employees. Employees are the greatest asset, value them and listen to them.
