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

Pros

Great breadth and a wide variety of opportunities to develop your career, generally co-workers are the best you will find anywhere at a large company.

Cons

A lack of leadership and opaque layers of management can leave you feeling lost and under-appreciated. There is still talk about the HP Way, and many company policies to ensure fair and ethical treatment of employees and customers, but it is very easy and common to feel that problems are recognized, not solved, and there is a general drift toward mediocrity. A company that could be the best, but can be very disappointing if you are truly in search of excellence.

Advice to Management

Unfortunately, the company needs a refresh at the highest levels, starting with the board. There is plenty of talent and experience at the individual contributor level.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big name and a big brand are nice. Easy to explain who your employer is at social gatherings.

    Cons

    You're one of about 350,000 and that becomes pretty evident. There is a lot of red tape to do anything outside the box. A lot of products rushed to market. Work/Life balance is what you make of it - but it's easy to be swept away into an always on lifestyle.
