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

Pros

Flexible work environment, better than average benefits

Cons

Mediocre management, morale, products, profits, pay

Advice to Management

Get a new, compelling, vision for HP's value in the market. Obviously, being "all things to all people" has marginalized effectiveness in the market and produced poor financial returns for your shareholders and employees. Narrow your focus, get back to true innovative products, and quit using employee (aka "headcount") layoffs as your default lever to improve financial performance.

    So much focus on reports, dashboards and presentations to show that we're 'producing'

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Home office - able to schedule calls, meetings from home. No travel or commute - saves gas, car expenses and stress.

    Cons

    Home Office - but as of November 2013 most employees will be forced to drive to an HP office vs working out of the home. So much for work/life balance, now that folks will be stuck in traffic, contributing to pollution, traffic and have to find other ways to take care of before/after school kid care. So much focus on making 'pretty' presentations, dashboards, bubble/cartoon reports, etc. for upper management to show that all the money being spent, resources used, etc. is achieving minute financial goals. Took the EER and haven't been this happy in YEARS !!! Have so many opportunities to choose from, and the pay, work/life balance is great.

    Advice to Management

    Design better, more innovative, and quality products. Design what customers (commercial, consumer) want to buy.

    Pros

    Great place to develop new skills.

    Cons

    Salaries are not the best, and usually salary raise are not true then you have to be careful when they promise things, they can't do.
