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 worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Well recognized name and impressive history. Casual work environment a big plus. No start up work life balance issues.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to make a big difference or for professional advancement. Frustrating to see so much momentum moving the wrong way.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of work to do, you can move around, lots of courses to take advantage of. Work Life balance is possible. Good accountability. Most managers are easy to work for.

    Cons

    Pay is average, layoffs are still coming for next 18 months

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation is key, in all areas of the business. The cloud can crush us if we don't get ahead of it.
