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

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

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume. I have been offered a better job and better pay with another company because of my experience here, so I am thankful for that. I have already put my two weeks notice in.

    Cons

    At my particular location, the pay is not that great and there is not a lot of opportunity for growth, even though I have been promoted 4 times is 2.5 years. Career path at HP seems to consist of a lot of "lateral moves" where your responsibilities increase ten fold, but your pay does not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate a clear vision to your employees and stick to it. Reward people based on performance and not favoritism.
