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

    Pros

    There are amazing people, who put up with a lot, working at HP. The products are good and the atmosphere is quite good, in certain departments.

    Cons

    Unbelievable awful decisions about direction.......When will Meg Whitman feel like a part of the company and take responsibility for these decisions instead of blaming others. Leo Apotheker almost put the company out of business. How could he be hired? How did the Autonomy fiasco happen?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leverage the fact that HP has the broadest array of products and services in the industry and move toward a solution company versus a "widget/commodity" seller.

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

    Pros

    Working with smart people and very large, interesting clients. Working from home office when not on customer site.

    Cons

    Internal management and work life balance. Always pressure to bill way beyond a reasonable amount for work life balance. Difficult to use internal systems to get knowledge and training independently. Hyper control of some costs (like travel itineraries) even when there is an undue burden on employee who is travelling 95% of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very hands off. Need more professional development and oversite into engagements that are not going well or have issues.

    Doesn't Recommend
