Pros

Great products; great co-workers, lots of energy, innovative edge of technology, strength in customer care,

Cons

home and work life balance could be improved; constant changes in managements focus; always adding more work without increasing salary/job description, lower management needs improvement and training. Career paths could be sharpened to ensure individual growth opportunities are available.

Advice to Management

You have the best products, just need to focus more on individual contributers and lower level management should be more closely monitored.

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

    Pros

    Large company with lots of room to move around Many areas will allow very flexible work arrangements eg working from home to various degrees depending on current management chain

    Cons

    Salaries aren't the highest There is a lot of emphasis on hiring in lower cost areas which makes it harder for folks in places like CA

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum towards thinking of employees more as people and valuable resources than commodities.

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

    Pros

    Great team work, plenty of opportunities for advancement, lots of diversity.

    Cons

    With acquisitions (Compaq, EDS, etc.), HP struggled to integrate cultures. That led to more divisiveness, in an already-siloed company.

    Advice to Management

    Revert back to culture of Bill and Dave days. Colleagiality, teamwork, flat management layers, opportunity for advancement, integration with local communities.
