I worked at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The position composed of 12-hour shifts for 3 days a week (M-W or Th-Sa), and alternate Sundays. Atmosphere was very laid back, and fairly safe.

Cons

No holidays aside from Thanksgiving and Christmas. Non-paid vacation days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please get line managers LEAN or Six-Sigma training so they can better implement workers in the line.

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

    Pros

    The benefits were great: health insurance, long-term care, disability, dental, medical spending account, child care spending account, discount for your auto insurance, adoption assistance, etc.

    Cons

    Worked on-site as a sub-contractor on a government contract. HP at corporate got all kinds of benefits. Those of us out "in the field" were forgotten. The company is so big that you're just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to reward those who do not work at corporate offices. We are the ones bringing in the contract dollars.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely, as long as you can connect to 800 numbers for conference calls and have high speed internet access.
    Salaries are decent. Enables you to work with WW organization.

    Cons

    Lots of churn and chaos with frequent reorganizations. Big organizations like HP are not agile; tools & resources are often outdated or adequate; plenty of red tape and bureaucracy. Low morale among employees. Fear of speaking out or suggesting alternatives to management does not make for a healthy work environment. Sadly the corporate culture and values HP used to have are long gone and HP is no longer seen as an innovator.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the bureacracy. Spend wisely - make sure the budget guidelines apply to all parts of the organization and really fix the internal issues, don't just spend millions slapping lipstick on the pig.
