Helpful, Delightful and Very Very Stressful

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Open Door policy (even the lowest entry-level employees are almost treated as equals)
- the best working environment
- employees constantly engaged through various hobby initiatives (sport clubs, music/dancing clubs, fitness gym memberships, special interest groups like programming, graphic design, etc)
- excellent work for entry-level employees just starting out in their careers

Cons

In the grand scheme of things, the employees are always the last priority. Your self-confidence and esteem will take a hit here.

The number one disadvantage of this company is that the management has no regard for employees when working overtime, weekends, holidays, as if these responsibilities are absolutely 100% acceptable, and they would even be appalled if you would protest at such duties (OT, weekend/holiday work are not paid, only compensated by day offs). Week-long double shifts and weekend work are an acceptable practice here.

And the compensation is not worth staying for too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let your employees know they are valued. At the end of the day, they are what will make or break this company, not metrics, not customers, not anything else.
