I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The benefits are great and very hard to beat, unlimited sick days and very affordable insurance. However, that is were the good stuff ends.

Cons

The company seems to take an approach to management that rewards those who belittle their employees and promotes an atmosphere of fear and discontent. Many of managers even attempt to do the same to each other, and engage in strong arm match in front of employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire those managers that have created this environment of fear and hostility, and provide training that will encourage an environment of cooperation and respect. You might be able retain employees for longer then just a couple of months.

    My experience is that HP is a company that cares only about the bottom line.

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

    Pros

    HP offers an employee the opportunity to move around in the corporation as well as opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    The right hand truly doesn't know what the left hand needs or is doing.
    Employees work in an environment where they don't know if they will have a job. A great cause of stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many layers between top and bottom.
    Salary increases depend on what group/division you're in; not on the individual performance of the employee.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some great projects are available, and there are truly some great people. The brand will impress your aunts and uncles.

    Cons

    Relentless deep cuts and the shifting of significant costs onto employees pitched as benefits. If you tune into the big picture (and how can you not with the constant cuts and years of bad news) it will feel like you're losing even if you are on a successful, satisfying project.
