No opinion of CEO

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (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 Management

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

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    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 Management

    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.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Sales people, and the sales support teams.

    Cons

    HP has become stagnant in the technology arena. They have made poor business decisions in acquiring EDS and Autonomy without clear focus on the end business, the consumer.
