I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Work/Life Balance
Benefits (pension, medical healthcare,...)
very family oriented. Good if you are father/mother and wants to have time for kids. Go for HP
Flexibility of working from home
Brand
People ( I do not include senior management here)

Cons

Lack of face to face interaction. Everything is virtual
Very bureaucratic
Poor pay for performance. The performance review and grade means strictly nothing and forced distribution is normal
Forget the word promotion, pay rise.....even if you perform significantly well. If you are ambitions and want to progress, leave HP; you will get better opportunities outside.
A lot of American show...lack of pragmatism

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect, Recognize, Reward your people appropriately
Be open and honest about your compensation and financials
HP could be great place to work. You have the brand and technology...but you miss the most important ingredient to be successful : your people. What a pitty !

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    The benefits are ok and the salary is ok.

    Cons

    The people who get promoted to management are not the ones who are capable of being good at it, but those who want it the most. Which is always bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PICK A STRATEGY AND STICK WITH IT. YOU ARE DESTROYING A HUGE SUCCESSFUL COMPANY.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
