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

Pros

HP has outstanding talent, some of the best engineers I have ever worked with. The culture, although not as great as in its glory years, is still among the best there is. HP really supports work-life balance and strives to be supportive of its employees. I've been able to work on many different technologies. HP has allowed me to grow and learn and that is one of its greatest strengths.

Cons

HP is becoming more and more average as time goes on. Doesn't pay as well as it should anymore. Not enough focus on high quality products as in the past. In the last 10 years there has been too much emphasis on purchasing companies rather than developing internally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in home-grown R&D rather than attempting to buy companies to provide technology.

    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.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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