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

Pros

1) Work From Home / Tele-worker privileges. If you can manage your time efficiently, being able to work at home allows for a large improvement in work-life balance. (and sleeping in)
2) Vacation Policy. I believe new hires start with 3 weeks and every 2 years of service gets an additional day. Carry over year to year is 5 days max.
3) Benefits. Although benefits were better a few years ago, having 9a large portion covered for dental, medical and other expenses is an added bonus.

Cons

1) Lower than industry pay.
2) Depending on what team you are on, the environment can be a bit toxic at times. This is generally based around pay and reoccurring issues.
3) Opportunities. What once was a thriving industry has been severely hurt in the current economic situation. The jobs that were available several years ago are out sourced and it is difficult to find new positions internally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lower Level Employees could use more attention.

    Pros

    Its one of the best organization that I have worked for. Really flexible and very understanding management.

    Cons

    Cannot think of any as yet. Maybe the usual rant that everyone has. Salary hikes can be much better.

    Like other huge companies Hewlett Packard has big bureaucracy. There are a lot of redundant work, but this is normal for companies like this ....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The important think for upper management is to know how exactly to communicate with the employees. Every employee is a different type and requires different approach ...
