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.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    What I have enjoyed from the first time at HP it was the relaxed environment. What I also like is the possibility to advance in your carrier (you are given also development plans and tools), to possibility to work in various projects (strictly related to the process or to company and employee programs, generally speaking), the flexible work schedule and the colleagues (most of them are between 20 and 30 years old).

    Cons

    As every multinational company, HP has its limits and it has to work within some limits, which sometimes makes it too rigid and some decisions/approvals come not too fast. Also, because it has many vertical levels, is not always easy to see yourself and your team in the big picture.
