Former Employee - Sales Specialist

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Enourmous company, lots of opportunities.
If you end up in a position in profitable line of business and clients, you'll be possible to do good business and good money. Company with good reputation and solid brand = easy/ easyish to sell, strong market position in almost every line of business.

Cons

Exremely, extremely bureaucratic and process driven. Getting some things done within the company may take a long long while and many times flexibility to get things done "your way/ quick way/ the only way to win" is out of the question. Very technically cultured company (people with business background please note), sometimes too much focus on technical features etc.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Go here if you see yourself as a manager in the future.
    Reimbursable perks (clothing, meds, travel)

    Cons

    Bad place to start for entry
    70% admin work and extra tasks over deliverables
    Bad treatment for technical career path people
    Policy changes are actually making processes worse than before

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please treat your senior people better.
    Mass hiring multiple entry resources to compensate for loss of senior sources is a sign that this company will implode in the future.
