I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for less than a year

Pros

co-workers were friendly, professional. location was convenient. excellent work space was provided.

Cons

poor management choices--unclear direction of team(s)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership isn't a one time per week meeting to cover status of projects. True leadership inspires and makes a difference. None of the high level managers seemed to have that skill. Often combined with poor communication skills.

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

    Pros

    Some great and hard working people. Training resources. Good benefits.

    Cons

    No career advancement, no overtime, no good tools, lots of layoffs. Management only cares about "their favorite team members" and not about the rest of the employees.

    Lots of disrespect among team colleagues but management doesn't care.

    Management sets poor examples of discipline (e.g. arrive late and leave early, watch internet, take training all day, aggressive attitude and language at all times).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about all employees and less about your own agendas.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Being associated with HP is a source of pride. I've appreciated the doors that have opened to me just because I'm part of HP. The company's reputation is solid, the products are first-class and customers openly respect the company and brand of HP. I love my company,ntheir history and culture. I hope to retire from HP with more than 20-years under my belt.

    Cons

    The scale and global reach of the company can sometimes limit or delay a rapid, strategic response to conditions in the marketplace. Occasionally, business processes in HP are cumbersome and fragmented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to listen to your employees about industry trends and customer needs, while making decisions about future product development.
