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

Pros

Good work/life balance, friendly people, competitive starting salaries, relaxed (sometimes too much) work environment, frequently able to work from home.

Cons

On-site benefits severely lacking, work place very stale, clearly cutting corners everywhere. Poor stability and upper management resulting in bad company wide results trickle into tiny raises and bonuses. Rewarded with pats on the back instead of money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get stability and promote within. Move up people with technical know-how and vision instead of people cashing in from the outside.

    Pros

    HP is quite flexible about allowing one to work from home when needed. Work/life balance is good. 3 weeks vacation offered after a year of employment. Chirstmas shutdow is great if your project permits.

    Cons

    Pay is way below market. Advancement opportunities were highlighted upon hiring and not the case. May people hired without assigned projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay is extremely low for people with technical degrees. Pay increases desperately needed!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
