Pros

Flexible work environment; able to work from home at my own discretion.
Compensation is amongst the leaders, not the highest but not the lowest.
Many career opportunities
Great people

Cons

Management driven primarily on the numbers, and less on the people. This is a little shortsighted as people are your #1 asset, and without their motivations the numbers will fall.
Reward and recognition programs needs overhauled. There is little motivation for employees outside of sales to give extra effort when there are no raises or rewards.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more back to the people, and deliver on the people promise. Ranting about numbers all day does nothing for company morale.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Hewlett Packard Company is a decent place to work, with good benefits and fair compensation. One benefit is the company is generally very supportive of employees and their personal needs. If you need to take a leave or some time off, they are supportive.

    Cons

    Being a very very large company, it is very easy to feel like a cog in a wheel at HP. Ther seems to still be a lot of dead eight and way too much bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to create small teams that can bond together and feel like they can achieve things they put their collective minds to.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    For starters its a huge company with many areas for growth and new opportunities. Its a great place to get major corporation experience, as you have exposure to multiple teams even within your division. Great international experience as well as most teams work with offshore groups. Chance for overseas travel.

    Cons

    Most employees will only get to move around in the company if they do some serious networking, and your boss LETS you. There are virtually no rotational jobs left, and managers often do not want to let go of their employees. HP's corporate culture unfortunately doesn't prevent favoritism from being played out in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value objective feedback over personal gripes. Take into consideration your own personal biases. Teach the inexperienced.
