Former Employee - Senior Finance Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

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

Pros

People, many different locations to work from, diversity valued, product portfolio is large and varied, can move within company to a new job fairly easily, some work from home options

Cons

HP is currently seeing some erosion to its historical bottom line profits, mobile devices encroaching on PC share and HP to date has not entered this market successfully, finance jobs being outsourced to other countries making advancement in finance career tougher

    Always wondering who is next to be cut. For the past 10 years there has been a real lack of stability.

    Pros

    Fantastic co-workers. top level management keeps making wieid decisions to by other companies while cutting into the talent that exists.

    Cons

    Management transplants and re-transplant people into new teams and roles too soon the get good at their new job. Once you are getting good, they move you. hard to get consistently good reviews when you are always on the move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop jerking folks from one team to another.

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

    Pros

    - No micro-managers - you have a lot of freedom to get the work done as you see fit
    - Lots of responsibility for those that step up
    - Talented and helpful co-workers
    - Flexible work arrangements
    - Pay for performance - annual bonus for those who do well

    Cons

    - If you don't have the stomach for job insecurity, you might do better someplace else. This situation seems to be improving, however
    - Top performers bear most of the workload which can be daunting at times
    - The senior management ranks is a revolving door although Meg Whitman seems to be bringing more stability now
    - The company is very big which can get in the way sometimes - hard to know everything that is going on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Take a hard look at the delivery function and be sure that we have enough trained people to deliver
    - Stop thinking of HP as a printer company along - lead with services
