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

    Pros

    Flexibility of work/life balance. I do work lots of hours but i can be flexible about when those hours are worked. If i want to attend a kid activity during the day i don't feel guilty. I just make sure i work late and get whats needed to be done, done.

    Cons

    HP is so big, not many people know whats going on and people are scared to make a decision that might get them fired. Its not like the old days were productive risk taking was encouraged. This is more noticalbe in the US where HP is cutting employees, most are just trying to hand on and not rock the boat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    low cost location does not trnaslate to the same quality of work.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with in the company. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of politics. No room for innovation. Not open minded. Forces you to use Microsoft and HP technology

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduced the politics. Cut loose some of the long time senior management there and bring fresh blood.
