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

Pros

Great work life balance. No pressure to work more than 40 hours a week. Extra effort usually is rewarded.

Cons

Size of the company is huge. There is constant management and structural changes. It is sometimes impossible to get the equipment needed. Takes forever for a plan to be put into place.

Advice to Management

Cut out all of the bureaucracy and let the enigneers get things done. Stop thinking quarter to quarter and thing bigger picture

Other Employee Reviews for Hewlett-Packard

  1. A company in the midst of a reinvention, they treat their employees well, but lack focus.

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

    Pros

    Engineers are treated well, there are avenues for promotion, and there are smart people around. The work life balance can be good, and there's more than lip service paid to the HP open door policy.

    Cons

    The company lacks focus, and that can be wearing. There's a general malaise about the future. It's a corporate bureaucracy, so things that should be fast aren't. The corporate structure in technology is academically oriented, so people with non-traditional backgrounds can have problems advancing.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure what to do at this point but stay the course. It seems that selling PCs and spinning off printers is off the table, so our options are limited. HP needs to get better at building software.


  2. It's a very good experience
