Current Employee - Vice President in Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not much other than like most people, thankful to have a job.

    Cons

    Very low morale and the company does not seem to care. Feels like just a matter of time until your laid off or your job is sent overseas. They do not fill vacant positions so you end up doing your job and another persons. No raises, no bonus' etc.. Sorry for the bleak picture, but it is just the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management, quit worrying about the stock prices and your big fat bonus' (How much $$ do you really need!). Show a little loyalty to the country where the company was founded and the American employee instead of getting the cheapest labor you can find !
