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

Pros

Working with smart, driven and talented people. People who sincerely want the company to succeed

Cons

High turnover of senior executives, multiple shifts in strategy and multi-billion dollar acquisition for fading technology that did not provide any return on investment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold People Accountable and Responsible for the wrong decisions they made. Listen to the people in the frontlines, they have very valuable feedback they could share

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work with very talented people and a great management team. This company is probably one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes globally dispersed teams can be challenging in terms of team meetings. However, this can also act as a great asset because one can have 24x7 development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a good job. Just keep up the good work

    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.
