    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Somewhat stable due to enormous size.

    Decent benefits.

    Lots of products to sell.

    Longstanding reputation.

    Name recognition.

    Cons

    To get a raise you have to quit first.

    Negative reputation with customers and resellers.

    Quota changes every quarter.

    No respect from managers.

    Horrible websites for self service benefits and documentation downloads.

    Listen to employees complaints and recommendations instead of constantly asking for surveys but not responding to issues exposed in those surveys.

    Encourage excellent customer service and reward customer satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and retain the talent in house. Promote from within instead of forcing employees to either quit or threaten to quit before considering salary increases.

    Encourage training courses to keep employees current. Provide training for employees to maintain technical edge.

    Stand behind employees and follow through on commitments.
