Pros

Advantages of a large company such as good benefits and enough resources to support the work. Good policy allowing for moving to another position within the company.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy. Not enough communication. Too much emphasis on profitability and growth. Too much time spent tracking time. Salary freezes and downsizing when things aren't going well.

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Portland, OR

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

    Pros

    Lots of good opportunities, ability to change roles and grow if you are self-directed and motivated. Opportunities to telecommute. Committed and talented employees.

    Cons

    Continual reorganization, lots of red tape, very little autonomy for managers. Inability for people to get raises and promotions. Current difficult financial situation has caused low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    trust breeds trust. Invest in people to raise morale. Not everyone who telecommutes is productive.

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

    Pros

    Broad technology portfolio with access to incredible talent and raw material. Great opportunities to lead the move to the next generation of cloud computing with a focus on security, big data and mobility.

    Cons

    Poor support of acquired and emerging BUs. HP has not built a platform for integrating acquired companies in the software area. All of the systems and processes are still optimized for hardware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a greater sense of urgency. Leverage the executive talent from acquired companies.
