Good people, bad management, high turnover, some interesting projects...

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

Pros- Great people to work with. Non-competitive environment where employees help each other succeed. You will meet some old-timers that have been working for HP for more than 30 years. These people rock.
- Market average salary, benefits.
- Great work-life balance. It was rare working overtime.
- Recognizable brand -HP.

Cons- Bad management and board. Previous CEO's have damaged the company and positioned it in a weaker spot than many competitors.
- CEO's/Management get away with high compensations and benefits while driving the company down.
- High turnover rate for employees.
- Project management is a big challenge. An employee might end up working on many projects at the same time, creating inefficiencies.

Advice to Senior Management- Set a vision and sell that vision to your employees and clients. Employees need to embrace that vision and live it.
- Listen more.
- Act more responsibly and let your salaries and financial benefits be more tied to your performance and the company's performance overall.
