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

Pros

Good technical people that care about their work and customers

Cons

Upper management that cares only about hitting financial targets and need to care about their customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Deep cost cutting via headcount cuts are rarely effective in the long run. Try delivering great customer service.

    Getting to be demands to support conference calls early and late to support engineers at other sites around the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HP way had it right. Don't try to scrap it, or improve on it. This "HP way now" is an insult to the original.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Strong sense of tradition, great exposure to lots of different spaces within tech, great opportunities to move around the company if you are a performer

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, lack of clear mission of the company, some corporate lifer type unhelpful colleagues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain the high-quality people to form a nucleus for the future. Too much attrition causes big problems.
