Ok place to start, but don't stay!

Program Manager (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

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

ProsFlexibility!!! Worked from home very often, even worked from Vegas for a week with no questions asked.
Some nice perks - volunteer hours, free photo printing, local discounts with HP badge

ConsUpper management has all the influence and your work at a starting level is mostly worthless
Once you are hired, you are forgotten and they then focus their energy (and money) into the next wave of hires
Constant company turmoil (acquisitions, CEO turnover, product failures) is embarrassing

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to make employees feel valued, empowered, and influential.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
