Current Employee - Senior Manager in San Diego, CA

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

Pros

many opportunities to grow your career. HP allows you to work your way into creating new business units which can be fully funded. an innovator and entrepreneur in me found this quality in HP most rewarding.

opportunity to work overseas.

consult and work with largest and greatest fortune 500 companies.

ability to work on monumental projects and transform industries with HP's services capability.

Cons

its a very big company. lots of process. projects sometimes move slower than you desire.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give more control to top performing middle managers

too much paperwork at HP's cost can be reduced. example - hiring process is just terrible...internal hr recruitment does not have competitive incentives and doing more process then qualifying candidates.

many accounts have too many projects which are not qualified and are not important to account or corporate objective....since HP loves tools, use one and make it mandatory.

    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
