I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Friendly culture, open to accept innovative ideas, growth is immense and finally Work from Home option is the best a Woman can get.

Cons

They are downsizing at the moment, choose the right department.

Advice to Management

You guys Rock, ensure some low level staff get paid well and filter people who do not deserve to be a part of HP ad that can bring in a very bad impression. Please do not downsize the team as they are may employees who are worthy to stay at HP to prove/perform but are jobless today and I was also a part of it. Thank you for a wonderful opportunity to work with a great company.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (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 Management

    Lower Level Employees could use more attention.
