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

    Pros

    Health insurance, 401K matching, Industry clout with HP (generally, not including recent misteps), Home/work flexibility

    Cons

    Horrible raises in comparison to market, Poor employee development, Bad management decisions, Employee morale seems to be continually getting worse, Continuous strategic redirection, Internal movement / promotion is possible but with grossly under-market salaries (when internally moving -- external hires brought in at market-value rates)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent.
    Realize without your employees championing HP (and their products/services) thanks to their satisfaction with the organization, HP will become nothing.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people at HP are excellent to work for. The climate is very laid back (though, it used to be more laid back than it is now). The pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to know how to maintain a successful business. We have entered several markets (tv's, projectors, cell phones...) and don't stay in long enough to make it successful. It can be very frustrating to work on a project and feel like you are being successful only to be told that they are cancelling the program not because it's not making money, but because it's not making enough money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with something! Just because the profit isn't immediate or as high as you want it to be, give it some time. You have some very talented people working for you, give them a chance to make HP great again!
