Current Employee - Senior Consultant  in  Detroit, MI
Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Detroit, MI

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The biggest pro is the ability to work with alot of different clients

Cons

No real career path. LImited opportunities for growth. Get in good with your management and your life is easy, be anything less than a favorite child and your life will be miserable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop the 'promote who you know' approach for opportunities.

    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Bethesda, MD

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You've got the HP name to draw on
    Industry leader in most segments(HP does not stay in a tech area it cannot be at least 1, or 3 in)
    Strong channel and partner network

    Cons

    Benfits are just average
    Confusing account coverage model (too many HP people call on one account)
    Not nimble enough or focused squarely in the market. Follows rather than leads
    EDS acquisition has been a disaster

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start innovating not copying
    Either sell EDS or get rid of most of the staff

    Former Employee - Specialist in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Colleagues are phenomenal. They are what made HP great and continue to strive for excellence despite management. God bless them because their work goes unheralded.

    Cons

    Just awful management in Legal. Stupid former law firm dropouts couldn't hack the law firm and glommed onto holston and brought their awfulness to HP. Couldn't have been worse. They have no experience, no commonsense, and no business running a legal dept. Or any dept. At all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize that employees have a value. We're not all deadbeats. We love HP and want it to succeed.
