I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

company has great benefits..actually excellent benefits

Cons

lower mgmt structure..mg1, mg2...are not in touch with employees..most are offsite so they have No idea what is going on..for the most part if they are not true managers who have done the position they are managing they tend not to have good knowledge to pass along to upper management when things are wrong. The group I used to work in had very poor managers and were very poor at both people mgmt and leadership. The department has been suffering for the last 3 years because of it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop sending jobs to Mexico and India. Train your managers to manage better and lead better. Invest in your U.S. Employees..actually talk to your lower level employees...not the mg1 and mg2 but the actual individual contributors in another means other than a survey. You might actually find out why you are losing your talented people.

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

    Pros

    Large Company, lots of opportunities,

    Cons

    hard to find paths to take advantage of the opportunities, mixed messaging, too overly concerned with profit margins and not service delivery and quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop paying so much attaching to Wallstreet Analyst and start paying more attention to what you sold and how you sold it. If you always worry about margins, you will never succeed.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Providing me an excellent experience working with a global team. There were a few awesome employees who I learned a great deal from and looked forward to seeing.

    Cons

    Men are chosen over women for exec positions. You hear about big company news through the internet not from your actual company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support the younger employees and advance them. Do little things like provide free soda or snacks to boost morale.
