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

Pros

Good team mates in the team. Working on decent projects. decent benefits - 10 day free child care, 4% 401K match. I have about fair work-life balance.

Cons

Pay could be much better. Upper management does a lot of screw ups with big deciscions - like acquiring and writing them off. Eg. EDS, palm, autonomy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

make right deciscions.

    Pros

    A Global company with the ability to provide a multi-faceted career. Strong history and wonderful track record in the industry of being the number one or number two player

    Cons

    HP has lost its way. Its values are only to the shareholders. It promises to employees are shallow and its management is just being recycled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become a truly cutting edge company again. Read the HP way. Invest in your employees..not just with lip service

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

    Pros

    Excellent relationship with coworkers. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Managers spend too much time managing up rather than providing guidance to employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives should come more frequently to visit remote locations and SPEAK DIRECTLY TO EMPLOYEES rather than remaining surrounded by local management while in campus.
