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 Management

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

    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    The product line is very broad and industry leading and will be around for the long term. Overall there is strong respect for the individual.

    Cons

    HP only wants to provide the minimal what it needs to provide to employees. The bonus structure between managers and employees is huge.

    Advice to Management

    Not only focus on making the company profitable, but also focus on the employees. It is the employees that will ultimately lead to success of the company
