    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It has good standards of quality of work.
    Workers in HP have good work-life balance.
    It has a huge talent pool, and numerous business verticals, so it's easy to move around for career growth and varied opportunities.
    HP has an e-learning tool that has a massive database of various topics, not limited only to technology, but all spheres of corporate business; and most of them are free.

    Cons

    Not a very good company for freshers who are highly motivated with high aspirations, as they aren't given a choice based on the technology of their interest (or near their interest), and is staffed into positions wherever there are vacancies.
    Pay packages needs to be re-assessed at regular intervals and base them on markets standards. Talent retention needs to be taken seriously by mid-level management; and company should be bold enough to replace inefficient workers.
    End of year feedback needs to be 360 degrees in order to assess the manager's efficiency down the command chain.

    Pros

    it sounds good when someone ask you 'who are you working for' and you said 'HP'.

    Cons

    it's the right place if you enjoy sitting still die in a small cube.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend some effort to make the career path practicable for employees.
