Hewlett-Packard is trying to return to the days when people wanted to work here.

ProsDepending on the group you work for, there is flexibility in your schedule for personal needs. The company has stabilized in its work force, and there is a renewed company wide effort at recognizing performance and rewarding loyalty, creativity and those who go above and beyond.

ConsThe company is enormous and there are still a lot of little kingdoms and bureaucratic nightmares that pop up. There are far too many processes that take longer to to complete than the work you are asking to get done.

Advice to Senior ManagementRelease the reins a little bit. The trend has been consolidating decisions higher and higher up the chain. The effect is that, for example, a PO to purchase equipment that has been contracted and paid for by a customer regularly takes over 60 days. The order is quick from the factory, but the approval process for the ORC and PO is detrimental to business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Distinguished Technologist (Former Employee)
    Fort Collins, CO

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


    Pros: It used to be a fair company, good morale and they cared… Cons: There are many managers who should NOT be managing. They are "little" people without imagination and depend on their staff for the tiniest of ideas.… Advice to Senior Management: Please make sure before you promote someone to manage a division, that they can actually do the job! It was H*** going to work everyday,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
