Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in London, England (UK)
Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in London, England (UK)

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

HP is huge and spread out in lots of industries and countries, so there are lots of career opportunities. You tend to have big impact in what you do in terms of numbers. In commercial roles, HP is very operational which build excellent business acumen. There is also a very good life/work balance in most jobs.

Cons

HP in my opinion, compared to other global IT companies, and to its heritage, is not innovative, agile or bold as it can be. Every decision takes forever because of matrices, alignment and confusion. Also, there is a lack of product culture - people tend to think either too technically or too operationally, lacking visionary product thinking. It is not for you if you prefer smaller companies or product focused companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take bigger risks. Get better at product vision, And get closer to the global startup community for the ideas, the talent and so the culture can change with the times.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, variety of products, perception of work/life balance focus, brand name, history

    Unfairness towards older employees, focus on products rather than IT solutions, no real emphasis on work/life balance but rather just words, greatly diminished focus on social corporate responsibility
