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

Pros

I was lucky enough to have very interesting work, and I got to work with some great people.

Cons

Many others were stuck on particularly boring, dead-end, tasks. Challenging authority does not go down very well at all. Very traditional waterfall software development.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more willing to adopt agile development practices.

    It was a tough environment, but people in the company want to do the right thing for it.

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

    Pros

    There was a great work-life balance. The company has a strong presence all over the world and has lots of resources to help you do your job well. Also, there are a lot of pockets of excellence within the company, but you have to use a lot of elbow grease and patience to make it happen.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of changes in strategy and it is confusing for the market, which makes it tough for the employees to do a good job serving our customers. It is a very large organization and sometimes you find out that there are duplicative efforts, which can batter the ego a bit and cause some confusion.
