Current Employee - Product Manager in Andover, MA

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good for slow-going people. Relaxed life style.

Cons

Has lost the charm and lusture from old days/years. Too many management changes in last few years. Very shoddy on employee benefits and compensation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of the employees first, and everything else will fall in line. Get rid of dead wood.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Corvallis, OR

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

    Pros

    Can't stress enough how good the work/life balance is! Every manager I've had in 16 years has been a great manager with their own unique strengths. Very relaxed environment. In my personal experience HP has been very committed to my development/growth.

    Cons

    Years of "benchmarking" strategy by upper management have been very succesfull. HP is now average in many respects instead of being an industry leader, albeit with a few bright exceptions. Could be even tougher times ahead for surviving employees (more layoffs and compensation cuts) as old core businesses are rendered increasingly irrelevant in the rapidly evolving technology landscape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead don't follow. Invest heavily in early stage development of potentially disruptive technology. Quit putting stockholders first. (i.e. Carly & Hurd days) Leo was an insignificant flash in the pan and the jury is still out on Meg.
