    Former Employee - Managing Consultant in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Opportunity to experience different aspects of transformation programmes.
    - YOU can drive where and what you want to do
    - It's your career, so meet as much people as you can to progress your career forward.

    Cons

    - Most transformation programmes are IT transformation, typically within an account that HP already has a multi-year contract with.
    - The consulting roles are mostly internal consulting roles, which means your client base are the HP's account teams.
    - If you don't drive your career forward you are stuck doing things you are not really keen on - you become a generalist consultant.
    - There are several internal consulting organisations, so you need to find out if you are in the right one, as there are some variations in what they do.
    - Inhouse consultants are typically deemed as body shop ... although the management would argue otherwise.
    - Training ... non-existent. Budget is set early in the year, but almost never used and usually gets stripped to other pots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest to the team and admit that you are a body shop organisation. If you want to develop your consultants and keep them motivated, develop capabilities in "Business Development" teams as one way to move the consulting team forward.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment with nice people. Good place to work for work-life balance and quite a stable company to work for

    Cons

    One of the worse pay masters for a global MNC with less than ideal benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too top heavy. Everyone is a manager, who does the actual work?
