    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    HP is a very large company and uses its resourses to help their employees, I was acquired from another company and brought into the company fold. HP was a good company to work for and was treated with respect.

    Cons

    I'm not sure if HP even knew I wass even an employee, we were acquired by HP but I never in 11 years felt like I was part of the company. Small to even no raises throughout those years, we even received a negative raise a few years ago. If you want to work for a large company to get experience this company is for you, but I want to warn you, this company has grown too large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a company gets too big, which is why I no longer work there, maybe you should bring the personal back into a company instead of the computer.

    Pros

    Big company, looks good on resume. Good products, which makes you feel proud to work there .

    Cons

    During the economic downturn in 2010, employees were treated badly, CEO position was a revolving door and there was no consistency/stability as an employee. Pay cuts, bonus cuts - which are all understandable during a time like that but it was still difficult to bear.
