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

Pros

ability to work remotely
good networking

Cons

too many management changes
too much politics
spend more time on internal BS rather than productive work
does not pay enough at non-exec levels
many execs that seemingly do nothing. move from group to group every 1-2 years, but screw up things in the process and then move on

Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big company provides many chances to try out new positions or work experiences. Flexible hours and work locations. New executives are turning the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic when it comes to company wide strategy and direction. Past decade has been entirely metric driven, not people driven. Internal IT is often worried about running a clean project not getting the internal customer the needed result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The swing you are making to engage the employee and restore a great workplace is great. Keep that ball rolling!
