I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Experience and work life balance

Cons

No matter how hard you work, no matter how good you are, you are only marginally better compensated compared with the average performing colleague.
There are a lot of people who live in the past. Whether they are pre-merger DEC, Compaq or HP, they all long for those good old days back in the 70's and 80's.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead rather than follow the industry with respect to the employees compensation and benefits and outsourcing.

    Pros

    Some of the EDS accounts still have good management

    Cons

    outsourcing....if you work here you will be replaced by someone in india, china, or malaysia

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your people are your only assets. You should invest in them with training and support. Quit hiring people with PH.D's in computer science from India from some unaccredited university. These degree's are worthless and you are losing good employees because of it. Employee Moral is at an all time low and with no recognition or bonuses in several years. We cannot even get office supplies. Meanwhile we see parties being thrown oversea's for our counterparts.

    HP has lost its luster of the old days.

    Pros

    Flexibility in terms of hours and working from home for certain jobs within HP. This could be a big plus for certain individuals.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement opportunities, lack of good leadership, lack of morally upright people in the leadership team, lack of competitive pay, lack of common sense sometimes. Not enough people with sight of a good long term goal and doing the right thing just for doing the right thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do the right thing, even if it doesn't mean the best $ return in the short term. $ obtained through cheap short cuts that makes no sense in the long run or at the cost of doing something "right" should be avoided.

    No opinion of CEO
