Pros

Work from home is great

Cons

As an employee, you are a cost to be cut. Work from home is great, but you have to pay for the phone and Internet to do so. If you are in services and not from legacy EDS there is ZERO chance you will be promoted. In fact, if you are legacy HP, your chances of WFR are roughly increased by a factor of 10.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

New motto for Enterprise Services: We're EDS without the D.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    You can work from home

    Cons

    Used to have good work life balance but because of all the layoffs working a 40 hour week is just considered a "C" employee. Expected to work longer than normal hours. Also, they have formed so many committees required for approvals it is difficult to get a decision made quickly. So many re organiziations within the company that the employees constantly have to learn a new way of doing things. I left on my own because it is just not balanced there anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down on all the re orgs so the employees can get proficient at the current process and are not losing focus in their jobs by constantly learning the new re-organization issues.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Not far to travel !

    Cons

    No decent pay rises for years, salary less now than 10 years ago in real terms due to inflation.
    No decent benefits, rubbish company car scheme, rubbish share scheme.

    Not the hp of old, your just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start innovating again, stop just wasting our money on making useless aquisitions, we dont need to do this, have faith in our own people to come up with the products - give them the resources and funding to do this. If we spend a fraction on R&D of what we have spent in total on Compaq, Palm, Bluestone, Autonomy, 3Par, Mercury, Opsware, StorageApps, Perrigrine etc...
