I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

Pros

HP has some really good people with strong skill sets. The company has some good software assets which can be sold and delivered to customers. Lower level employees want to succeed and do well for customers and their immediate managers. Sales and project opportunities are available and won due to the company name recognition.

Cons

The red tape can be over whelming at times. Some managers need to allow their people to develop into roles and increased levels of responsibilities. Too much time is spent justifying your job versus getting the job done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put more focus on managing southbound (downstream) in the organization chart and not northbound (upstream) to play the politics.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Salary increases are hard to come by. HR is in India. Yes. You call to speak to an HR rep and they are in Bangalore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people. Make them want to stay. I am gone.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good(i.e. health benefit)

    Cons

    Growth is very slow.
    Job security is very low. Policies are manipulated at project level.
    Old EDS work culture is not popular.
    No prior experience in services is hampering this huge brand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is high time for higher management to concentrate on managements at project level and evaluate their qualification to handle their responsibilities
