Pros

Great people, broad technology product coverage, broad market coverage, really cares about customers. Great culture with a long tradition of being a good corporate citizen. Lots of technology innovation, as well as strong integration.

Cons

Too much senior leadership change (CEO level as well as SVP/EVP) as well as questionable acquisitions.

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume. I have been offered a better job and better pay with another company because of my experience here, so I am thankful for that. I have already put my two weeks notice in.

    Cons

    At my particular location, the pay is not that great and there is not a lot of opportunity for growth, even though I have been promoted 4 times is 2.5 years. Career path at HP seems to consist of a lot of "lateral moves" where your responsibilities increase ten fold, but your pay does not.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate a clear vision to your employees and stick to it. Reward people based on performance and not favoritism.

    Pros

    Fairly liberal time off and sick leave policies.

    Cons

    Working at HP is crazy. They talk people, but when you get a promotion, they don't give you the pay raise. There are no raises to speak of and the benefits really aren't that great. This makes it impossible to build a career at HP, because moving up does your family NO GOOD. The work is tedious, the internal systems are embarrassingly bad for an IT company and they are penny wise and pound foolish.

    Advice to Management

    Try living for a month on what you pay your supervisors, let alone your front line workers.
