    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company with lots of opportunities.

    The PC market downturn has really affected HP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more careful with aquisitions going forward, and remember it's a large company but we are still people.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of very sharp people working there. Products being worked on were cutting edge and unlikely to ever be outsourced to a third world country. Friendly environment.

    Cons

    The group I worked with had a female manager but no female engineers. Very odd. Management didn't review progress often enough, especially with new hires. High turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Specify goals more clearly to new hires to reduce turnover. My recruiter indicated that they let a high percentage of new hires go very early. Need a better orientation program.
    Female engineers generally make up around 30% of the workforce based upon what I have seen. I think I saw 10-15% at the locations where I worked.
