Former Employee - Program Manager in Houston, TX
Former Employee - Program Manager in Houston, TX

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

Pros

Flexibility!!! 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

Cons

Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

Find a way to make employees feel valued, empowered, and influential.

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

    Pros

    It's HP -- birthplace of Silicon Valley, stalwart high tech icon.

    Cons

    It's no longer "HP". HP MUST find it's way. If you are charasmatic and a turn-around guru, HP needs you. It must reinvent itself; looking outside has not proven successful; maybe it's time to bring back some former, sound leaders.
