I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Stability, human resources department is great, engagement activities and benefits

Cons

Salaries have being slowed down for the last 3 years
Company cut the budget for professional certifications
Career path changes have become really hard to get, due slow company growth
Too many tools, tasks and mandatory tracking that add no value to our departments

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest on people, they dont have to give us everything but either work on career or salary.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    The people I knew were great to work with - first class quality knowledgeable folks ... they allowed working from home.

    Cons

    HP is going through serious reorganization and focus on its business - hence 29000 layoffs and retirements expect through 2014. The people I worked with have left - and HP has lost a lot of quality talent. Previous CEOs seriously screwed up hence the changes...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Suggest if HP wants to be recognized as a preferred employer, the salary structure needs to reflect the going rate for the positions...
