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

Pros

Capable engineers. Vision to provide meaningful innovation to the world.

Cons

Decision to kill the WebOS mobile business caused a lot of damage, externally and internally. Too many expensive aquisitions in recent years that didn't pay off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clear strategy how to proceed in the consumer market, especially in the important tablet and mobile market. Find ways to differentiate from the competitors.

    Former Employee - Sales Specialist

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a 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 for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great
    Plenty of opportunities to learn
    Great roles to enhance skills, knowledge and experience

    Cons

    Promotion is slow
    Benefits can do a lot of improving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully, people will be taken care of better, not just in terms of learning or work-life balance, but also in terms of salary and benefits. This will really boost motivation and keep the best in the company.
