Pros

The individual contributors truly care about the customer and each other. Flexible work hours is a definite plus and the name really helps on the resume. HP is a stepping stone company to a better place.

Cons

Management only looks out for them self and refuses to acknowledge anything is wrong with the HP corporate culture. Constant changes in reporting structure make it impossible to obtain a meaningful review.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Never forget about how your actions and refusal to acknowledge issues affects others.

    You cannot have a high performance team by appealing to the former glory of the company

    Pros

    HP is a great place to learn IT foundations, trends and future. If there is some new tool or methodology, for sure you can have access to it, play and learn at HP. Strong leadership (tough most of the times) makes the team to come together and achieve great things. Overall culture is to deliver and goal oriented, which constantly gives you the satisfaction of achieving challenging assignments. Company offers many opportunities to move between different business units and learn different functional areas.

    Cons

    Grew a lot in the last 5-7 years through acquisitions, most of them didn't make a lot of sense. Strong cultural "tribes" persist from the original companies, restricting the growth in certain areas and preventing collaboration company-wide. Pay is lousy, like working for HP is enough reward. Terrible choices for the board, it is tough to remain focus when executives are often involved in scandals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good DNA is still in the air. Go back to the basics: good salaries, take care of the people, offer great creative products and executives with strong ethical values.

    Pros

    The company is very supportive of working at home. This means one can work almost anywhere in the country and that is quite helpful.

    Cons

    The pay raises were few and far between over the course of the last seven years. This made working for HP a bit less salary competitive.
