I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

HP is a great company to work. People are Good. Some practice groups are very good. One can really have a good work life balance.

Cons

There's not much growth potential within practice groups. Even though you may bring great experiences, your inputs are not disseminated to leadership well enough. Pay increases Not so good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some great talent & experiences within Orgs & Practices could well be utilized if information is fed to Hierarchies by structured HR.

    Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff in San Diego, CA

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

    Pros

    Best atmosphere, very casual, Worked with really smart people who were very committed to doing a good job and doing the right thing. You weren't judged on you appearance, i.e. forced to wear a suit. My direct supervisor would come in shorts and flip-flops - as an extreme example. Great benefits, stability and ok pay. Work/life balance was good if you had an understanding manager.

    Cons

    If you are nonexempt, you tend to hit a glass ceiling, no pun intended, with little chance to jump over to the exempt side of things, unless you get an advanced degree or MBA, etc
