I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Hewlett Packard is a great company with exposure to many different opportunities and technologies. One of the best things about Hewlett Packard is the people that work for it. The people tend to help each other out on projects a lot and know the meaning of teamwork.

Cons

As with many large companies, sometimes it takes longer than necessary to get even simple things done. Lots of process and meetings at different levels often slow some things down some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have less meetings and process and let people get things done in a more expedient way.

    Current Employee - Technical Support Engineer in Lawrenceville, NJ

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

    Pros

    - looks good on your resume, I suppose
    - some very talented people work here
    - could lead to something better when the job market opens up

    Cons

    - no stability
    - leadership by blabbing
    - Dilbert's world makes more sense than this place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your heads out of dark places and find out what is happening down in the trenches. You rely on reports through the chain of command without any grasp of reality where business happens.

    Pros

    The benefits were great: health insurance, long-term care, disability, dental, medical spending account, child care spending account, discount for your auto insurance, adoption assistance, etc.

    Cons

    Worked on-site as a sub-contractor on a government contract. HP at corporate got all kinds of benefits. Those of us out "in the field" were forgotten. The company is so big that you're just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to reward those who do not work at corporate offices. We are the ones bringing in the contract dollars.
