I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Fascinating technology and a lot of smart people to work with. Their software vision is grand though difficult to achieve.

Cons

See title! A great deal of off-shoring leaving U.S. based employees the first in layoffs. Difficult to work in global teams with the language, culture, and time challenges. Challenging to have performance reviews given by someone you've never met and rarely talk to. Didn't feel like there was good support for the employee to get the assigned job done well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees with respect and listen to their issues. Sending out surveys then making no appreciable changes is a morale killer.

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

    Pros

    The people. Great peers who are motivated to do well.

    Cons

    Low salaries. Hardly any perks to working there. Once HP aimed to be among the top 10% salary wise but now they seem to be among the lowest paying. Company seems to keep the bulk of the money for senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the people and get rid of the quarterly based incentives for executives who tend to become short term focused.
