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

Pros

Produce well engineered products, company has great tradition/history

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

Advice to Management

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

    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 Management

    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 10 years)

    Pros

    You can work from home or in a office (cube). There's generally a good work / life balance, and managers do their best to help you resolve whatever issue you need help resolving

    Cons

    Upper management sees workers as a commodity, and don't do much to try to retain top talent. Pay is mediocre, benefits slowly slipping away. It isn't the same HP it was 15 years ago.
