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

Pros

Working with great people who are interested in getting things done and are concerned about the customer experience. The HP Way. Work life Balance.

Cons

Continued rounds of "workforce reductions" have led to the loss of a lot of IP. HP Labs is relative shadow of itself. More politicking, especially after the Compaq merger. Inconsistent direction/vision from senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HP has an enviable reputation and tradition for producing quality products that work. Unfortunately that has slipped into a "cheap cost-cutting, me too" mentality resulting in loss of consumer confidence. Trust your people, listen to your employees: We really want HP to succeed far more than you because of how we feel about the HP Brand and unlike you we don't have a golden parachute should things go horribly pear shaped.

    Pros

    Some nice people to work with. Workload was steady. It was quite nice to stay busy.

    Cons

    Out of town managers.... did not like! Some internal managers were very moody. Titles had gone to their heads.
