Pros

HP is one of the leaders of the market at the segments that it acts. Managers are very well experienced and provide excellent guidance to individual contributors.

Cons

The company wants to be on average when talking about salaries, benefits and total compensation. This means that the company is losing some talents to the competitors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Brazil is a different scenarium and is on the spot nowadays. Senior management needs to understand this and try to retain talents.

    Salaries are HORRIBLE, but there are travel and work-from-home opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Flexilibity (work from home and travel opportunities)

    Cons

    Salary! My advice to people considering employment here is to come in the door making the salary you want to make for the rest of your career here, because there are no raises. Even when you get promoted, there are no raises. They will lie to you during the interview process and tell you they can discuss salary at a future date, but don't buy it. Also, get used to finding out the people around you are making DOUBLE what you are, but have less responsibility. I've actually seen PowerPoint presentations given to managers with tips for how to deal with an employee who has discovered they are below the lowest salary in the salary band, without giving in to any adjustment in pay. Seriously: Make sure you come in the door making what you want to make for a loooooong time to come!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the retirement packages so we can get some non-dinosaurs (hey, maybe even some folks who don't fear change and technology!) into management positions.
