    Former Employee - Director in Palo Alto, CA

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

    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.

    Current Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Plano, TX

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

    Pros

    good benefits; comfortable office space (when you are allowed to work at the office), covered parking, nice cafeteria, close to retail shopping

    Cons

    Management has lost touch with the human side of their staff and resources. They no longer care about the people. Do not pay well, but expect you to work many hours day/night/weekends to meet aggressive deadlines

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try to establish good working relationships with your employees. They are your most valuable resource. Try treating them like better.
