I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Generous in team building budget.
Cash rich company.

Cons

Lack of risk taking and creativity in product introduction. Want to do everything but not willing to change the way of doing things.
Lack of brand identity in market. Want to be good in everything but not realizing what is their core & strength. There aren't any product that the employeer could be proud of.. Where is our pride??

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I hope the company will breakthrough in product launching and marketing startegy.
Hope to hear in the market someday, we have one very famous product that we can be proud of. Answer is when?

    Pros

    You have ample room to advance. Projects tend to be large scale and "enterprisy". Plans are usually ambitious (sometime overly so). Friendly environment, friendly people.

    Cons

    Lots of politics. Tons. Plans can be over ambitious and clash with other departments. Most developers are average or above (compared to the industry), but with that many there's 100% chance you'll have to work with someone who's far below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake the tree, let some of the really rotten apples fall. On the other hand - open up replacement racks! There are a lot of good people out there that we want to bring in and can't.
    Let us work without the politics. Consolidate departments and modernize applications - but give us enough time to do so properly.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in timings and the work culture is great.
    Work From Home option.
    Except for few projects, Work-Life balance is great generally.
    Great place to keep on learning new technologies.

    Cons

    Slowly and gradually it's focusing on cost cutting by reducing the benefits given to the employees earlier.
    As it's a big giant, so you need to outperform to a greater level to get the visibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Measurement for performance needs to be improved

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
