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

Pros

Challenging work; top notch talent; abundance of opportunities

Cons

HP doesn't know how to treat their service segment. They are still very much a product company at heart and that mindset manifests itself in all aspects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out how to better manager (and appreciate) the service business you paid $14 bil for in 2008.

    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.

    Pros

    Great team of colleagues who help one another reach tight schedules and all strive for quality work.

    Cons

    Constant executive turmoil; mediocre salary; slow salary based recognition of sustained performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with a plan long enough for it to make it to and effect desired change with the 1st level employees. Skip feeling the need for new programs all the time.
