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

    Pros

    Once upon a time, HP was viewed as a management powerhouse. That reputation carries, even if it hasn't been earned in the last 15 years.

    Cons

    Management only wants to hear "Yes", even if it can't be done. If you aren't willing to make promises you can't keep, your career is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved with your people. Really understand their jobs, rather than blindly delegating to them. As it is, they just look for a scapegoat 90% of the time, which isn't producing results.

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

    Pros

    brand value
    history
    ppl are generally nice

    Cons

    old timers can give newbies a very hard time - this was how things have been done here etc.
    with its strong family culture, almost every employee has a network within the company which makes "change" difficult
    middle level managers who have worked for the companies for the ages doesn't even know how to set up a PC - yet they work for an IT company - how ironic!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't sink the boat

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
