I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (less than an 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.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Unlimited sick time, can hurt you if you take a lot though. Great job if you have no ambition and don't want to achieve anything with your life. schedule rotation (depending on your team)

    Cons

    Management here has no clue what their employees are doing on an individual level. Don't expect to get anywhere in this company unless you kill yourself trying to move up and have 30+ years to put into it. Don't expect raises unless you suck up to management and have outstanding numbers. no on-call support... yet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the people that work for you, reward the people that deserve it.
