Pros

Working at HP I have had a flexible schedule.
Good fringe benefits
Good place to gain experience
Large company that allows for changing roles

Cons

I currently work a for a manager that is big on micro-management there is also a lot of bureaucracy. The medical and dental coverage is expensive. It's also a very large company that is very compartmentalized. Finding out about other parts of the company is difficult because they are so large. Worked in a position that should have paid more but didn't because they never changed my job code.

    Revolving door that fosters low moral and guarantees low wages.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours that contribute to a healthy work and life balance, while giving growth opportunities to work with cultures worldwide.

    Cons

    Frequent workforce reductions that keep impacted personnel at hiring salary for years if rehired; managers who blame poor business results on ever-changing strategies instead of their own lack of leadership; and lack of ethnic minorities in management roles in the United States.

    Advice to Management

    Improve upward mobility for loyal and productive employees. Hire people for leadership roles who understand HP culture, processes, and are loyal before hiring from the outside. Don't punish the introvert who contributes more to revenue and innovation than the extrovert who always throws responsibility over the fence and seeks attention for self only.
