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

Pros

Good people who work hard and care.

Cons

Outsourcing, management bonus focus and cost cutting seems to drive all decisions, rather than taking care of employees and encouraging creativity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too highly paid CEO's and upper management is what ruined HP. Board of Directors need to overhaul the whole top level structure. Too many CEO's doing a bad job and walking away with millions. Why not give the actual workers incentive rewards to do a good job and make the company profitable?

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

    Pros

    - Flexible projects, Great colleagues
    - Solid technical people
    - Lot of flexibility in workplace, once you've experience
    - Decent pay & benefits...not too much below market.

    Cons

    - Management chains - too much bureaucracy. So much so that corporate started a program to bust bureaucracy.
    - No growth, unless you are in high profit project.
    - Frequent shuffles in strategy from corporate. No clue what they're up to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get rid of redundant management layers
    - If you don't have a business plan for acquired company, Pl. don't buy it... (I'm ex-EDS, so I know).
