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

Pros

Flexible work hours, schedule and are very big supporters of teleworking. There is a lot of corporate diversity and they are very supportive of work-life balance.

Cons

Moving from one career path to another is challenging if you are good at what you do (but most companies are like this except for small-mid which you have to wear many hats) Salary increases are very difficult to get, and you can pretty much "seep" sideways in a career for many years without being challenged much. Education is fairly limited to internal coursework and prerecorded modules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to take a more proactive role in promoting employee career paths and help them find the right fit if they are not happy where they are at - HP is a big company and should be able to offer suitable paths to all employees. Salary increases are pretty much non-existent, so like many larger organizations people find themselves stagnating.

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

    Pros

    Incredibly smart, talented and positive people who are doing their best to make HP successful. Great opportunities to work globally. Very good salary and benefits, especially at the management level.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover and reorganizations at the upper management level, resulting in lots of churn on priorities, projects and what people should focus on. Hard to stay positive with all of the negative press - but that should lessen as HP's performance starts to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be humble, listen to the employees that know what's going on at the operational level, and bring back sincere employee engagement best practices.
