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

Pros

Produce well engineered products, company has great tradition/history

Cons

Always restucturing, reducing costs, meaning reducing local workforce and replacing w/ offshoring if replaced at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave HP, get a position at a employee and customer-centered company.

    Current Employee - Sales Representative in New York, NY

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    HP has a long legacy of products and services
    Plenty of training to be taken to help you with your Job

    Cons

    Constant pressure from senior management
    You will always be threatened with your Job starting as soon as 2 months
    Businesses are very siloed and the units do not work together to win business
    No one can tell you where to go for help. In most cases you have to call between 5-7 people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best way to sum this up is a website was created so people could submit trouble areas to the management team. It was suppose to remain open for 30 days after 5 days and 83,000 submissions the site was shut down.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's magnificent size and scale. If you know how to leverage the organization great things can happen. The reach is unbelievable and there is a great diversity within all the different BU's, regional and country organizations.

    Cons

    Too bureaucratic, too bloated. HP has moved away from employee empowerment, one of the hallmarks of the company, which leaves too many decisions for senior management.
