I worked at Hewlett-Packard part-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Although most people think the opposite, HP is a good place to work on innovative and challenging projects. Good compensation and campus life.

Cons

As one would expect, the environment is not like what you can find in most startups. The employees are not young and this makes the work experience more business/work oriented.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people here are very talented and usually a pleasure to work with. Flexibility is more available than most places. Possibilities within HP are endless.

    Cons

    Had a rough go lately with CEO's - and work force reductions. Bureaucracy can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push better tools, processes and business models. Start leveraging strengths across BU's more.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    GREAT people in the general working population

    Cons

    Lacking clarity of vision and VERY POOR people management skills. Speaks of the value of the person but when it comes time to let people go often done in an old school value system and structure . Meg Whitman's value has yet to trickle down her organization .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open with people about the turnaround and their job security a bit sooner than a two hour notice of termination .
