Approves of CEO

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some of the most talented people in the industry work there. They pay well and they give bonuses at year end

Cons

You are always worried about your job-there does not seem to be stability. I had 8 bosses in 3 years..impossible to move up the chain and promotion is very rare.

Advice to Management

Stop changing direction of the organization so frequently. Even if you have a great plan..you do not stay with it long enough to realize it

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, laid back atmosphere, great people. It's the most comfortable job I've ever had. Employee discounts, free coffee, exercise facilities.

    Cons

    Not as structured as it should be. A lot of work gets cast aside because of poor project planning. Takes many years to advance.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great variety of positions across skill levels, experience, capabilities and industries with an ability to transition after a year of positive contributions / outcomes

    Cons

    Long hours, high expectations by senior leaders can become disproportionate to compensation. Self directed career advancement requires constant management and internal networking & sponsorship.

    Advice to Management

    Top heavy management out of touch with service delivery ... Product lines are Too broad
