Great if you just want a paycheck. Very hard to get things done.

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

Pros

Good benefits, opportunities to move to various groups, historic company, good people. A great lifestyle company (in most groups).

Cons

It's hard to get promoted because people hold onto the limited Director and VP roles. It's hard to innovate or get big things done because of aging infrastructure, momentum, politics between groups.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let the HP culture and cash cows kill acquisitions or innovative ideas.

    Pros

    Ability to work with some of the top technical in the industry

    Cons

    Lots of employees, easy for people to get lost in the shuffle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be the ability for larger pay increases for young, new talent as they progress in their career. Current system lumps them too closely with highly paid, experienced talent where salaries need to be frozen or lowered.

    Former Employee - Distinguished Technologist in 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 about their employees. Compensation was competitive along with benefits, but now all downhill.

    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. I was there well over 25 years and all of a sudden, a loyal, large bonus employee was told he was not needed. A kick in the heart for this engineer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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, so in the end, they did me a huge favor by letting me go. I am now with a great company and even better people.
