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

Pros

People are respected and given responsibility. I worked on interesting projects and with very smart people. Lot of opportunities to learn new skills. Competitive salary and benefits.

Cons

In recent years cut backs to R&D have caused a lot of the innovation to stop. A lot of good people left or were let go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in R&D. Don't try to be IBM. Get out of commodity businesses.

    Pros

    The people at HP are great. They smart, hardworking, and have uncompromising integrity.
    The company operates in many different regions and market segments so there is ample opportunity to move around by changing job function, region focus, business, or market segment.
    Work/life balance can depend a lot of a particular position. In many roles a reasonable balance can be achieved. In some roles you are trying to cover areas of responsibility that used to be covered by two or more people. .

    Cons

    Challenging future. They mainstays are in low growth or shrinking markets.
    Planning and investment decisions are too often made based on short term criteria or results.

    Pros

    employees are empowered to learn on their own.. tools and resources are easily accessible.

    Cons

    The "self-service" motto is great but can also be a time waster when one really needs abit more help than just reading the "how to" references or chatting with a tech. there is no direct phone number to call when one really has a complext PC or connectivity problem.
