Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Cupertino, CA

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

Pros

Flexibility, great experiences, encouragement to take on new jobs, used to have great career opportunities

Cons

Management has lost their way and tried to be all things to all people. They really killed the goose that laid the golden egg by not valuing employees other than lip service. Basically any career movement within the company is gone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do the hard thing and do what's RIGHT, not just what Wall Street wants or what will make Meg and the execs rich.

    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.
