I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

Pros

Flexibility in work hours, good compensation and benefits, since it's a large company there are many job opportunities.

Cons

Process of selection of any new manager is not clear, friendship with the hiring manager is a key factor to be selected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow others outside your inner circle of friends to apply and get the job as new managers.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    flexible work hours, good salary, and intelligent colleagues. Looking to the "HP Way" is good for the culture and keeps stress minimal.

    Cons

    unclear vision from the top, insecurity about long-term support of Labs projects. A sense that a lot of the IP developed is licensed to partners rather than providing a path for HP itself to develop its own full-stack products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear about long-term support of Labs projects

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to work with some really great people in a large scale enterprise. The opportunity to do different jobs over the years is great. There is some awesome cultural history at HP and the current management is trying to bring back much of the good that once was working within HP.

    Cons

    It is a big company. Even though there have been pushes to simplify processes with some improvements made, it still can be complex to do simple things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meg Whitman (CEO) is one of the very best CEO's I have ever been under. She understands the markets, wall street, and also knows what HP internally needs to do in order to return to being a great company.
